Unparalleled optical performance in a fast and steady telephoto zoom: In the pursuit to achieve the most outstanding image resolution in the 70-300mm class, Tamron's Anniversary lens - the SP AF70-300mm F4-5.6 Di VC USD (Model A005) - utilizes an advanced optical design that features an LD (Low Dispersion) and an XLD (Extra Low Dispersion) lens element made from specialized materials that prevent chromatic aberration. As a result, the SP AF70-300mm F4-5.6 Di VC USD (Model A005) boasts sharper contrast and greater descriptive performance than all others in its class. In addition, it is the first Tamron lens sporting a USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive), Tamron's very own ultrasonic auto-focus drive mechanism This USD mechanism delivers fast focusing, making it a perfect telephoto zoom choice for photographing sports, racing, or other fast-moving subjects. The lens also boasts Tamron's proprietary VC (Vibration Compensation) image stabilization to assist in handheld photography, not only at long focal length ranges where blurring is common, but also under low-lit conditions, dramatically enhancing photographic freedom. This combination of best in class image resolution, Ultrasonic Silent Drive and Vibration Compensation is a new achievement of Tamron technology culminating in the production of a premium 70 300mm telephoto zoom lens.
Compatible Mount Canon, Nikon and Sony**

This product is great for my D5100 and it took a great pictures which has a nice handshake between my camera and lens. Only thing i have a concerns is it is bit of heavy weight, but the peer of this lens in Nikon has the same weight ratio. The construction of the lens is great. Also the customer care in buydig is great and helpful. I called them they resoved the issue immediately in my order. Quick response and undoubtly i will buy again from buydig.

Tamron 70-300 vr lens
By Pat Bodin

We could say that this lens isn't the best on the market, but then it didn't cost 2000 dollars, either. For those of us who don't have big money or use our cameras for our livlihood, this is likely the best we can do.
