VC (Vibration Compensation)

VC (Vibration Compensation) is Tamron's proprietary image stabilization system. Tamron's VC is a three-coil system, whereby three driving coils activate the shake-compensating VC lens group electromagnetically via three ceramic balls. The VC lens elements are held in place only by contact with the ceramic balls, achieving smooth movement with little friction. This provides a stable viewfinder image with excellent tracking performance. And as the VC lens may be moved in parallel using only the motorized control, the mechanical structure has been simplified, enabling the creation of a more compact lens.

New VC System (moving coil method)

Tamron's original VC image stabilization mechanism utilized a moving magnet system whereby a heavy magnet was positioned near the moving VC lens element. In the new VC unit the positions of the magnet and the coil are reversed, because of this the VC optical lens element is attached to the coil. The new VC mechanism employs a moving coil mechanism with a lightweight coil, and the lighter coil reduces the load on the drive system. Thus, the lighter, more compact new VC unit contributes to the lens's overall light weight and compact size.

The Ultrasonic Motor

In the ultrasonic motor, a piezoelectric element arranged in a ring formation generates ultrasonic vibrations in a metallic ring stator, and the vibration energy is used to rotate a metallic ring rotor that is attached to the stator. The rotation energy is in turn transferred from the metallic ring rotor to operate the focus lens.

One special XLD (Extra Low Dispersion) *5 glass in concert with four LD (Low Dispersion) elements minimize chromatic aberrations. This combined with a new optical design that delivers high contrast and high resolution throughout the zoom range achieves leading-edge image quality.
Tamron's advanced multi-layer coating technology dramatically improves lens performance by reducing flare and ghosting for crisper, clearer images.
The rounded diaphragm*6 affords the photographer spectacular blur effects, delivering the kind of rich expression only achievable with a high-speed telephoto zoom lens.
The most compact*1 full-size, high-speed telephoto zoom lens with VC (Vibration Compensation)*2 image stabilization and USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive)*3 in its class delivers superior mobility, enabling photographers to capture the previously unattainable.
Features USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive)*3 to power a speedy AF drive together with a continuous manual focus mechanism.
The VC (Vibration Compensation)*2 image stabilization mechanism reduces camera shake to deliver sharp images.
Moisture-resistant construction helps prevent moisture from penetrating the lens.

*1 For high-speed telephoto zoom lenses for full-size SLR cameras, equipped with VC image stabilization and USD. Current as of September 2012. (Source: Tamron)

*2 VC (Vibration Compensation) is Tamron's proprietary image stabilization mechanism.

*3 USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive) is Tamron's proprietary ultrasonic motor drive.

*4 The Sony mount does not include VC, as Sony digital SLR bodies include image stabilization functionality. The Sony lens is designated as "SP 70-200mm F/2.8 Di USD".

*5 The XLD (Extra Low Dispersion) glass is made from specialized high-grade glass, which offers greater chromatic aberration correction properties than LD (Low Dispersion) elements.

*6 This rounded diaphragm retains a nearly circular shape even when taken two stops down from its fully open state.
