Every year that CWS has done a Holiday Gift Guide, a Tamron All-In One zoom lens has been part of the mix. And every year, they extend the range that it covers, from their classic 18-200mm lens to their current favorite, the 18-270mm. Our CWS Holiday Gift Item #3 takes the zoom range to the max with their brand new 16-300mm F 3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD macro zoom lens with an astonishing 18.8 X range!
This extraordinary lens comes with Vibration Compensation and high-speed Piezo Drive auto focusing, making it a lens you can rely on for crisp, detailed wide to long-telephoto shots. Macro focusing down to 1:2.9 is also provided. The cutting-edge lens design consists of 16 elements in 12 groups and includes three Molded-Glass Aspherical elements, two LD (Low Dispersion) elements and UXR (Ultra-Extra Refractive Index) glass. Together, they correct optical aberrations, while state-of-the-art multi-layer coating significantly minimizes ghosting and flare to deliver images of exceptional clarity. The entire package is kept incredibly compact through the use of advanced mechanical design engineering. Available in Canon, Nikon & Sony (without VC) mounts, this lens sells for $599 (after a $30.00 instant rebate until 12/31/14) and would be the perfect compliment to any cropped sensor DSLR we sell! Ask us to show it to you when you come in!
