Tamron has joined Canon, Nikon and Sigma in the image-stabilization club with the release of the 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 XR DI VC Aspherical zoom lens.

The new full-frame superzoom incorporates VC, or Vibration Compensation mechanism, enabling the photographer to handhold at lower shutter speeds without the benefit of tripods or monopods. The macro function allows a close-focusing 19.3 inches with a 1:3 reproduction ratio; all housed within a very compact 4 inch, 19 ounce package.

Also announced was a new SP AF70-200mm F/2.8 Di LD Macro zoom made of engineering plastics materials which makes the zoom very light at under 40 ounces. With a removable tripod ring mount, a one-touch AF/MF button (for Nikon and Canon only) and three LD elements, this new telephoto is sure to be a popular addition to the Tamron lens family.
