The AF drive is equipped with VXD (Voice-coil eXtremetorque Drive), Tamron's first-ever linear motor focus mechanism for stunningly fast and accurate auto-focusing. Two VXD units are arranged in a floating system and operated simultaneously via electronic control to achieve excellent optical performance at all shooting distances near and far. Focus tracking has also been vastly improved during sports and racing photography, which are common subjects for telephoto zooms. This ensures that those powerful moments are never missed, whether shooting still photos or video. With the excellent quietness that is characteristic of linear motor systems, the AF is ideal for shooting in low-noise
The 70-180mm F/2.8 offers MOD of just 0.85m (33.5 in) across the entire zoom range, a surprising accomplishment for a large-aperture telephoto zoom lens. At this short distance (at the 180mm setting) the magnification ratio is 1 :4.6, permitting powerful close-ups.
Featuring compact, light-weight design and the same 67mm filter size as the other mirrorless camera lenses Tamron has introduced, multiple lenses are easy to carry together, plus filters and lens caps can be used interchangeably. Now that's convenient!
