Camera - - IN PRACTICE | WILDLIFE PHOTOGRAPHY -

Tam­ron’s re­cent round of ‘Gen­er­a­tion 2’ up­grades has seen a num­ber of key models re­freshed with new er­gonomics and styling, bet­ter op­tics and im­proved spec­i­fi­ca­tions. The new G2 150-600mm zoom is smaller and lighter (it weighs un­der two ki­los), with an all-new op­ti­cal con­struc­tion de­signed to op­ti­mise cor­rec­tions for var­i­ous lens aber­ra­tions. It also has Tam­ron’s lat­est gen­er­a­tion ‘Vi­bra­tion Com­pen­sa­tion’ (VC) op­ti­cal im­age sta­bil­i­sa­tion which is claimed to give up to 4.5 stops of cor­rec­tion for cam­era shake. There’s also the lat­est ver­sion of Tam­ron’s ‘Ul­tra­sonic Silent Drive’ ring-type mo­tor for aut­o­fo­cus­ing which im­proves both re­spon­sive­ness and speed. Ad­di­tion­ally, the min­i­mum fo­cus­ing dis­tance re­duced to 2.2 me­tres which, at 600mm, gives a mag­ni­fi­ca­tion ra­tio of close to quar­ter life­size. Weath­er­proofed? Of course. Avail­able in Canon, Nikon and Sony mounts. $2199. Visit www.tam­ron.com.au
