The Tamron AF 28-200mm F/3.8-5.6 XR Di Aspherical (IF) Macro(Model A031) is universal full-format 7x zoom lens, specially designed for full-format digital SLR cameras, but it can easily be used on film and small-format digital cameras with a range of efficient focal lengths of 44-310 mm. The compact and lightweight lens is convenient as an all-in-one lens for full-format camera; a small-format camera lacks for wide angle.
The optical scheme of the Tamron AF 28-200 mm f/ 3.8-5.6 XR Di Aspherical (IF) Macro employs 15 elements in 14 groups, including 3 hybrid aspherical and two XR (Extra Refractive Index) elements. The lens features multicoating, minimizing flare and ghosting, and coated inner surfaces.
The lens is equipped with a zoom lock mechanism at 28 mm, which prevents barrel extension under its own weight when the lens is directed downwards..
Due to the absence of a built-in AF motor the Tamron AF 28-200 mm f/ 3.8-5.6 XR Di Aspherical (IF) Macro operates in Manual Mode only with the Nikon bayonet mount on low-end D40, D40X, D60 cameras.
Evaluation of designations:
AF : autofocus
Di (Digitally integrated) - optimized for full-format digital cameras
XR- eXtra Refractive Index glass can bend light rays at steeper angles, thereby decreasing the physical length of the lens while enhancing imaging performance by minimizing optical aberrations
ASL (ASphericaL) - one or several aspherical elements
IF - internal focusing (the lens does not extend, the front element does not rotate)
Macro - macro mode
