April 9, 2015, Saitama, Japan - Tamron Co., Ltd. (President & CEO: Morio Ono), a leading manufacturer of precision optics, has announced that the company’s first high-power zoom lens designed for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless interchangeable-lens cameras, the 14-150mm F/3.5-5.8 Di III (Model C001), has been named BEST CSC ENTRY LEVEL LENS at the TIPA AWARDS 2015.
CSC cameras promise a lighter and more portable photographic experience. In line with this approach, Tamron has created a lightweight and compact MFT (Micro Four Thirds) compatible lens. Delivering an impressive (equivalent) focal length range of 28-300mm, the lens weighs a mere 285g (10.1 oz) with a 80.4mm (3.16 inches) in length (unextended). Constructed of 17 elements in 13 groups, the lens has an impressive close focusing distance of 0.5 metres (1.64 feet) and contains AD (Anomalous Dispersion) glass as well as hybrid aspherical and LD (low dispersion) elements. An IF (internal focusing) system means the lens does not extend during focusing. The lens comes in both black and silver models to match the user’s camera body.
The TIPA Awards are world-renowned as the most influential photo and imaging product awards in the industry. The Technical Image Press Association (TIPA) has a worldwide membership of 27 photo and imaging magazines from 16 countries across five continents. TIPA also has a cooperative agreement with the Camera Journal Press Club of Japan. Once a year the editors of TIPA’s member magazines meet to vote for the best photo and imaging products in each category.
* The SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD (Model A011) won a TIPA Award last year, making this the second consecutive year.
