Additional information:


The Tamron 14–150 mm f/ 3.5–5.8 Di III (model C001) is a versatile zoom lens for Micro 4/3 digital mirrorless cameras.

The optical scheme comprises 17 elements in 13 groups, including three aspherical elements (two molded and one hybrid) and one LD element.

The stepping motor's actuator allows finely tuned control of angular rotation, and since it drives the focusing mechanism directly without an intermediate reduction gear, it also provides superbly quiet performance

Tamron's VC mechanism employs a three-coil system, whereby three driving coils activate the shake-compensating VC lens group electromagnetically via three ceramic balls. The VC lens elements are held in place only by contact with the ceramic balls, achieving smooth movement with little friction. This provides a stable viewfinder image with excellent tracking performance. As the VC lens can be moved in parallel only by electrical control, the mechanical structure is simple, enabling downsizing of the lens body.

At release not equipped with stabilizer.

The lens is available in two colors - black or silver.
