Evaluation of  Tamron 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
  • LD - low dispersion glass minimizing aberrations and increasing contrast
  • ASL (ASphericaL) - one or several aspherical elements
  • IF - internal focusing (the lens does not extend, the front element does not rotate)
  • VC- Tamron 3-D Vibration Compensation stabilizer
  • Macro - macro mode available

The 5-year warranty extends to all Tamron lenses officially imported to the Russian Federation and purchased after September 1, 2010.  In order to get warranty you should get registered at the Tamron European website within two months after the lens purchase.  The warranty is valid only for the first registered buyer.
