C001

Lighter. Smaller. Sharper.

Tamron’s high-power all-in-one™ zoom lens for Micro Four Thirds cameras – in a choice of two colours.

Developed by Olympus Imaging and Panasonic, Micro Four Thirds is a new system standard for compact mirrorless interchangeable-lens cameras that enables users to capture high-quality images using smaller, lighter equipment.

Now, Tamron has expanded the possibilities of the Micro Four Thirds system with an innovative 14-150mm zoom lens (equivalent to 28-300mm in the 35mm and full-frame formats).

This 10.7x zoom weighs only 285g and has a compact form factor that accepts a 52mm diameter filter. Available in a sophisticated black or silver finish, this unique lens makes it easy to compose and capture sharp pictures over a very wide range of shooting conditions. It’s ideal for travel, family, and creative photography.

Key Features

A stepping motor for quick, quiet autofocus

The stepping motor’s actuator allows precise control of angular rotation, and since it drives the focusing mechanism directly without any intermediary reduction gear, it is also exceptionally quiet. These features also give the lens a seamless, fluid autofocus action when shooting video.

Flower-shaped hood is supplied with the lens to shield stray light

Included as a standard accessory, the flower-shaped hood matches the rectangular shape of the image sensor to most effectively block the interference of superfluous light rays entering from outside the borders of the image area, helping to ensure sharp, clear, flare-free images with crisp detail in the shadow areas.

10.7x high-power zoom lens for Micro Four Thirds cameras. A single lens that can capture almost any subject in exquisite detail,

Tamron’s first all-in-one zoom lens for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless interchangeable-lens cameras covers an extended zoom range from 14mm wide-angle, to normal, to 150mm telephoto, and enables macro/close-up shooting.

This 14-150mm zoom is a perfect travel companion for capturing beautiful images of virtually any scene, and is especially useful for shooting when traveling abroad where compact size and light weight are essential.

This lens captures memorable images of family events without missing a single precious moment.

Focal length: 28mm Exposure: F/7.1 1/250sec ISO: 200

Stylish metal lens barrel has a luxurious appearance and is a hallmark of high quality construction

In color and finish alike, the elegant and stylish lens design complements the design of today’s leading Micro Four Thirds cameras. Luxurious brushed metal finish accentuates the elegance of the exterior design. It’s available in black or silver finish.

The essence of Tamron technology in a compact, all-in-one™ zoom that minimizes aberrations and maximizes image quality

The optical design of this lens includes one LD (Low Dispersion) glass element, two AD (Anomalous Dispersion) glass elements, two Molded-Glass Aspherical elements, and one Hybrid Aspherical element. This formula reduces aberrations to a bare minimum to achieve exceptional class-leading image quality. The 14-150mm zoom is the fruit of Tamron’s 20+ years of experience in designing and manufacturing world-class all-in-one zoom lenses.

Building an impressive 10.7x zoom range into an ultra-compact lens body is made possible by adopting a more sophisticated multi-stack-cam layout. This advanced cam layout draws on Tamron’s extensive engineering expertise, which is focused on innovative space-saving zoom cam structures.

A Stepping Motor for quick, quiet auto-focusing

The stepping motor’s actuator allows precise control of angular rotation, and since it drives the focusing mechanism directly without any intermediary reduction gear, it is also exceptionally quiet.

These features also give the lens a seamless, fluid auto-focusing action when shooting video.
