Tamron adds three new models to their ranks, including two all-in-one mirrorless camera lenses

Tamron_18-200mm_EOS-M.pngTamron has just rolled out three new lens offerings, which cover a wide range of bodies. First up is an all-in-one lens for Canon's EOS M-series of mirrorless cameras; the Tamron 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 Di III VC. This lightweight AIO lens was originally released for Sony NEX/Alpha E-mounts, however Tamron has now added an option for EOS M owners. It offers a versatile 11x zoom range for Canon's EOS M, which is currently the only mirrorless camera from Canon in this series. The 18-200mm is comprised of 17 elements in 13 groups, including two low dispersion elements, three molded-glass aspherical elements, one hybrid ashperical element, and one XR (high refractive index) element. They claim this combination of glass helps the lens deliver, "astounding image quality by reducing aberrations to a bare minimum.". The new 18-200mm EOS M series lens will run you about $500, and will start shipping in late June, 2014.

The 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di VC PZD is yet another AIO lens offering that boasts, "superb image quality in a remarkably compact, lightweight package.". Currently being offered only in Canon and Nikon lens mounts (Sony compatibility to be announced at a later date), this 28-300mm lens offers a lot of great features, at a price of about $850. Tamron notes a "state-of-the-art optical design", which includes LD, XR, and UXR glass. They also boast about how compact the lens is, thanks to a "multi-stack-cam" layout and their compact PZD (Piezo Drive) autofocus motor; the latter is not only compact, but also claims to offer faster, quieter AF. To top it all off, this lens is moisture-resistant, making it ideal for all outdoor shooting situations. Look for this model sometime later this month.



Tamron_14-150mm_m43.pngLast, but not least, is the company's first Micro Four Thirds lens; the 14-150mm F/3.5-5.8 Di III. Offered in black and sliver, the new 14-150mm lens gives Olympus and Panasonic m43 users an opportunity to own an affordable AIO lens that offers some appealing features. Of these is the 28-300mm equivalent zoom range, which covers a wide range of photography. When Tamron originally announced the design back in early 2013, it was slated to offer their VC (Vibration Correction) system. However, they've decided to remove this feature from the actual production units. Like the above models, this lens should start showing up at retailers later this month. The MSPR will be $589.
