The Tamron SP AF 200-500mm F/5-6.3 Di LD (IF)(Model A08)  is a full-format 2.5x zoom lens, not equipped with an image stabilizer.

The optical scheme of the lens includes two Low Dispersion glass elements which reduce aberrations.

High-strength plastic is used in the lens construction, which considerably reduces the weight.

The Tamron SP AF 200-500 mm f/ 5-6.3 Di LD (IF) design allows you to rotate a polarizer with the hood attached  via the filter effect control ring. The FEC ring can be removed.

The detachable tripod collar, made of durable and light magnesium-base alloy, can be removed by pressing the button.

The focus ring rotates during autofocus operations.

The Tamron SP AF 200-500 mm f/ 5-6.3 Di LD (IF)  features the zoom lock mechanism at 200 mm, which prevents barrel extension under its own weight when the lens is directed downwards.  

Evaluation of  Tamron designations:

  • SP (Superior Performance) - Tamron high-quality professional series lenses
  • AF : autofocus
  • Di (Digitally integrated) - optimized for full-format digital cameras
  • LD - low dispersion glass minimizing aberrations and increasing contrast
  • IF - internal focusing (the lens does not extend, the front element does not rotate)

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.
