Tamron 150-500mm F/5-6.7 Di III VC VXD – Nikon Z Overview

The Tamron 150-500mm F/5-6.7 Di III VC VXD is an ultra-telephoto zoom lens designed for Nikon Z mirrorless cameras. With a generous 150-500mm focal length range, this lens offers incredible versatility for wildlife, sports, and nature photography. Despite the long reach, it has a compact and lightweight design for excellent portability. Equipped with fast, quiet autofocus and highly effective vibration compensation, it delivers outstanding optical performance and usability.

Tamron 150-500mm F/5-6.7 Di III VC VXD – Nikon Z Key Features:

  • 150-500mm focal length range, covering wide-angle to super telephoto perspectives
  • Compact and lightweight design for a 500mm lens
  • Fast, nearly silent autofocus with VXD linear motor
  • VC image stabilization provides up to 5 stops of compensation
  • Close focusing to 0.6m at 150mm for an impressive 1:3.1 magnification
  • Advanced optics with LD, XLD, and hybrid aspherical elements
  • Fluorine coating and moisture-resistant construction
  • An Extremely Versatile Ultra-Telephoto Zoom Lens

With a generous 150-500mm zoom range, this lens offers incredible reach for photographing distant subjects. At 500mm, it provides a 35mm equivalent focal length of 750mm on Nikon Z APS-C cameras, enabling ultra-telephoto perspectives perfect for wildlife, sports, birding, and astrophotography. The wide 150mm end is versatile for landscapes, environmental portraits, and more. Overall an extremely versatile lens for Nikon Z shooters.

Compact, Lightweight Design for a 500mm Lens

Tamron has engineered this lens with a compact, lightweight design. It measures just 212.3mm long and 93mm in diameter. Even when zoomed to 500mm, it extends to a mere 287.3mm. Combined with a light weight of just 1720g, it offers excellent portability and handholdability – something uncommon for most ultra-telephoto zooms. You can comfortably carry and shoot handheld with this lens in the field.

Fast, Nearly Silent Autofocus

A key highlight of this lens is its fast, quiet autofocus driven by Tamron’s advanced VXD linear motor system. This provides whisper-quiet, high-speed AF performance that excels for both stills and video shooting. The lens drives focus quickly and precisely from close-up to infinity, even at the full 500mm telephoto end, making it easy to maintain sharp focus on moving subjects.

VC Image Stabilisation for 5 Stops of Compensation

The lens incorporates Tamron’s highly effective VC (Vibration Compensation) system to minimize blur from camera shake. This provides up to 5 stops of stabilization, allowing handheld telephoto shooting at slower shutter speeds. You’ll be able to capture sharper handheld photos and footage, especially in low-light conditions. The VC system detects and compensates for shaking on 3 axes.

Impressive Close Focusing and Magnification

Unusually for an ultra-tele zoom, this lens provides excellent close-up abilities:

  • Minimum focus distance of 0.6m at 150mm
  • Maximum magnification ratio of 1:3.1 at 150mm

This allows you to shoot dramatic close-up photos of small subjects at the wider end of the zoom range. Fill the frame with flowers, insects, small animals, and other close subjects.

Advanced Optics for Superb Image Quality

Tamron’s sophisticated optical design delivers outstanding sharpness, clarity, and contrast across the frame at all focal lengths. It includes specialized low-dispersion (LD) and extra-low dispersion (XLD) glass to virtually eliminate colour fringing and chromatic aberrations. Hybrid aspherical elements also suppress additional distortions and aberrations for true-to-life image quality. Together with BBAR and fluorine coatings, the lens delivers clear, vivid images full of detail.
