- Di Design
Digitally Integrated is a designation Tamron puts on lenses
featuring optical systems designed to meet the performance
characteristics of digital SLR cameras. By employing "Internal Surface
Coatings" and multiple-layer coating technology on ordinary elements,
ghosting and flare due to reflections that occur when light enters
through the front element and reflections caused by the imagers
themselves are reduced to the absolute minimum.
- Macro Effect of 1:2 in Telephoto Zoom Range
Flipping a macro switch in the focal length range of 180mm to 300mm
allows entry into the macro range, for photography as close as 37.4" (95
cm) from the subject. In the macro range, one can take advantage of the
telephoto effect and a maximum magnification ratio up to 1:2. In
addition, since the focal length in the macro range spans from 180mm to
300mm, zooming can also be used to adjust composition.
- LD Glass
LD glass elements reduce various aberrations while minimizing the
fall-off of light at the corners.
