These lenses are not designed for conventional cameras and digital cameras with image sensors larger than 24mm x 16mm.<br /> <br /> <strong>Extra Refractive Index Glass (XR)</strong> <br /> Extra Refractive Index (XR) glass can bend light rays at steeper angles, thereby decreasing the physical length of the lens while enhancing imaging performance by minimizing optical aberrations. This has allowed Tamron to develop a line of shorter, smaller-diameter, lighter lenses without sacrificing lens speed, and actually upgrading image quality compared to older designs. XR glass is costlier than conventional glass but it yields enhanced optical power distribution, making possible many of the outstanding and innovative lens designs that bear the XR designation. XR glass, with its superior light-bending power, makes it possible to design a short-barrel lens with the same light-gathering ability (aperture value) as a long-barrel lens?even with a smaller lens diameter. By using this principle Tamron has been able to shorten the length of the entire optical system and produce lighter, more compact lenses of the same speed, and also to provide greater zoom ranges in lenses that are much more convenient to carry by hand. <br /> <br /> <table align="center" cellpadding="3" width="300"> <tbody> <tr> <td><img alt="Tamron AF18-200mm F/3.5-6.3 XR Di II at Amazon.com" border="0" src="http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/ce/844/AF18_200/xr_tube.jpg" /></td> </tr> <tr> <td><center><strong><em><small>Special glass for better performance and more compact lens designs</small></em></strong></center></td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <strong>Low Dispersion (LD)</strong><br /> Low dispersion (LD) glass elements in a lens help reduce chromatic aberration; the tendency of light of different colors to come to different points of focus at the image plane. Chromatic aberration reduces the sharpness of an image, but glass with an extremely lowdispersion index, has less of a tendency to separate (defract) a ray of light into a rainbow of colors. This characteristic allows the lens designer to effectively compensate for chromatic aberration at the center of the field (on axis), a particular problem at long focal lengths (the telephoto end of the zoom range), and for lateral chromatic aberration (towards the edges of the field) that often occurs at short focal lengths (the wide-angle end of the zoom range.) <br /> <br /> <table align="center" cellpadding="3" width="300"> <tbody> <tr> <td><img alt="Tamron AF18-200mm F/3.5-6.3 XR Di II Low Disperson example at Amazon.com" border="0" height="218" src="http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/ce/866/AF18-270/ld_glass.jpg" width="300" /></td> </tr> <tr> <td><center><strong><em><small>Low Dispersion (LD) Glass for Greater Lens Sharpness</small></em></strong></center></td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <br /> <strong>Super Performance (SP) for Discriminating Shooters</strong><br /> Tamron SP (Super Performance) series is a line of ultra-high-performance lenses designed and manufactured to the exacting specifications demanded by professionals and others who require the highest possible image quality.

The Tamron SP AF17-50mm f/2.8 XR Di II LD Aspherical [IF] is a lightweight, compact, fast standard zoom lens designed exclusively ...for digital SLR cameras. The focal length of this lens is equivalent to approx. 26-78mm in 35mm format. This lens offers an f/2.8 maximum aperture throughout the entire zoom range, to ensure stress-free photographic shots at all focal lengths and distances. Additionally, a broader photographic expression through the use of faster shutter speeds as a result of the maximum aperture offers enhanced photographic pleasure. FEATURES: Optimized for Digital SLR - The use of XR (Extra Refractive Index) glass optimizes the overall distribution of optical power, and also reduces various aberrations to the absolute minimum while achieving remarkable compactness. In addition, suitable positioning of two hybrid aspherical elements serves to maintain imaging performance and to shorten and compress the entire optical system. LD Glass - An LD (Low Dispersion) glass element is used to accomplish effective compensation of on-axis and lateral chromatic aberrations, a critical factor for enhancing optical quality in digital photography, in order to achieve outstanding optical performance over the entire zoom range. Enhanced Peripheral Illumination - Peripheral light fall-off is minimized when compared with that of conventional lenses for film cameras, so images are uniformly bright from the center to the periphery. Internal Surface Coating to Reduce Ghosting and Flare - By employing "Internal Surface Coatings" (i.e., multiple-layer coatings on cemented surfaces of plural elements) and multiple-layer coating technology on ordinary elements, ghosting and flare due to the reflections that occur when light enters through the front element and Read More

Superb corner-to-corner image quality from an ultra-wide-angle zoom Tamron aims for the highest standards with the SP (Super Perf...ormance) lens series and the 15-30mm F/2.8 full-frame ultra-wide-angle zoom is a worthy addition. This high-performance zoom lens equals the performance of fixed focal length lenses from 15mm to 30mm, an unprecedented achievement made possible by the development of its unique XGM (eXpanded Glass Molded Aspherical) lens element that effectively controls aberrations and enhances sharpness. The 15-30mm combines a wide range of coverage, a fast F/2.8 aperture, and image stabilization, further proof of Tamron's commitment to innovation and excellence. Superb image quality and performance With an optical construction of 18 elements in 13 groups, inclusive of XGM (eXpanded Glass Molded Aspherical) element placed at the front group and several LD (Low Dispersion) glass elements in the system, aberrations such as geometrical distortion and lateral color are efficiently compensated for enabling the zoom lens to deliver outstanding image quality throughout the entire range from corner to corner. Prominent competence of VC when shooting night scenes and under low light conditions Recognizing the needs for image stabilization capability on a wideangle lens voiced by a number of photographers, especially for a full-frame, fast F/2.8 ultra-wide-angle zoom lens category, VC is tuned for providing discernible competence throughout the entire zoom range. The feature enhances image depicting capabilities for shooting night scenes and under low light conditions. Benefit of the eBAND and the improved BBAR coatings Tamron's acclaimed BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) coating is further refined to render uniformity in transmissivity across the critical bandwidths. Coupled with the eBAND coating, ghosting and flare typically observed on ultra-wideangle lenses are efficiently eliminated, resulting in crisper and crystal-clear images. Fluorine Coating on the front element, Tamron's first Due to the large diameter and the prominent convex profile of the front element, it is not practical to deploy a protective filter. For the first time, a fluorine coating is applied to the front element, which repels water or any type of dirt, while making it easier to remove such smudge when contaminated. Fascinating background "bokeh" with the fast maximum aperture of F/2.8 Natural and smooth blur on the subject background enhances depictive capabilities of wide-angle photography when a subject is located in the close distance. The 9-blade diaphragm construction retains a near-circular aperture opening even when stopped down by two steps from its full open position and delivers ideal bokeh effects. Easy-to-use autofocus Speed of autofocus and control accuracy are further improved. USD(4) (Ultrasonic Silent Drive) delivers tack-sharp images due to the high torque and fast response speed with least amount of lag time, yet with extremely low acoustic noise. Equipped with a full-time manual focus mechanism, fine focus adjustments are enabled without exiting from the AF mode.
