Tamron broke new ground in MFT lenses yesterday with the release of the 14-150mm f/3.5-5.8 DI III, the company’s very first all-in-one zoom lens for Micro Four Thirds cameras.
The Tamron 14-150mm DI III lens offers MFT shooters a 28-300mm full-frame equivalent field of view and a f/3.5-5.8 variable aperture. Inside you’ll find 17 improved optical elements in 13 groups, a 7-blade aperture diaphragm, and stepping motor built with quick and quiet AF for video in mind.
The one thing that is conspicuously absent from the specs and acronyms is image stabilization, which Tamron decided to eschew since many MFT cameras feature in-body stabilization anyway.
The 14-150mm lens comes in black and graphite color options with a petal-shaped lens hood, and will be shipping at the end of this month. If you’re interested, you can already pre-order yours at B&H for $590 by clicking on that price tag.
