Tamron SP 85mm Di lens wins EISA awardEISA Award for Best Product in DSLR Lens category for 2016-2017 – Tamron SP85mm F/1.8 Di VC USD

The Tamron SP 85mm F/1.8 Di VC USD has been awarded Best DSLR Lens of the Year by the The European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA) presents awards each year to products judged to be the best in a broad range of categories.

The receipt of this prestigious award marks the 18th year Tamron has won an EISA Award, and the 11th consecutive year since 2006.

The EISA jury said that the lens “sets new standards of performance for a short telephoto portrait lens. It’s the first of its type equipped with optical image stabilisation, allowing the photographer to use shutter speeds up to 3.5 stops slower than usual. Optical performance is enhanced by the use of Low Dispersion and Extra Low Dispersion glass elements to minimise chromatic aberrations, and the barrel is also sealed against dust and moisture. The optical design strikes a perfect balance between sharpness at the point of focusing and producing a soft natural effect at the background, making it a perfect lens for portrait artists.”

The SP 90mm F/2.8 Di MACRO 1:1 VC USD (Model F017) is the most recent in a successful line of Tamron SP 90mm macro lenses. It redefines the best in advanced features and extends a legacy of superior optical performance. Enhanced VC functionality further improves image stabilisation at any shooting distance. AF is faster and fine-tuned for various framing conditions. The lens is more resistant to dust and moisture than ever before, and fluorine coating on the front element surface prevents condensation and repels smudges.

February 2016

The Tamron SP 85mm F/1.8 is the world’s first 85mm fast-aperture lens with image stabilisation. Its unique design allows us to include our VC (Vibration Compensation) system – without the lens becoming too large or heavy. The SP 85mm f/1.8 delivers edge-to-edge viewfinder brightness for ease of composition and superior low-light performance. The fast aperture of the f/1.8 also offers the perfect balance of subject sharpness and bokeh, that dreamy blur which separates the portrait subject from the background.
