This lens is equipped with a tri-axial image stabilizer called vibration Compensation (VC), a Tamron proprietary development. The VC feature minimizes the effects of camera vibrations and shake of hand-held photography. The lens offers more photographic possibilities for shots at longer shutter speeds, making it ideally suitable for "Available Light" photography in low-light conditions.
The Tamron SP AF 17-50mm lens provides jaw-dropping performances thanks to some cutting-edge features.
For starters, the vibration-compensation image stabilisation system corrects blur caused by camera shake for crystal-clear shots. The minimum focusing distance of 29cm on the SP AF 17-50mm lens is ideal for close-up photography, no matter whether you're using wide-angle or telephoto options.
What's more, the SP AF 17-50mm lens has an attractive design to suit all types of cameras, and a handy lock that stops the lens extending out as you carry it around with you.
