Closer look at the Tamron 150-600 mm

Ever wondered what all the Letters stand for that comes after the aperture number? The Tamron 150-600 mm f/5-6.3 DI VC USD has DI “Digital Integrated design”. VC stand for Vibration Compensation. USD stands for “Ultrasonic Silent Drive”. Lets take a closer look at the Tamron 150-600 mm lens. I let the picture do most of the talking:

With the lens you also get the big lens hood and the detached tripod mount. This particular lens version is for Canon.

When the lens is set for the lowest of focal length of 150 mm and with the lens cap front and back the lens is about 27 cm (10.62 inches).

When the focal length is set to 600 mm the lens is about 35 cm with the front and back cap.

The zoom is from 150 mm to 600 mm. Which make it a great ultra lens for outdoor shooting. It has a zoom lock as well.

VC stand for Vibration Compensation and it is Tamron’s image stabilization system.

The lens is 95 mm. It might be hard to come by this lens size but online you can find shops that have filters for this size.

I have bought a filter called B+W UV 95mm MRC, which one shop was selling especially for this Tamron lens. This filter also have a sky-lighter filter which give a pink tone and make it a warmer color tone in the picture.
