TAMRON ANNOUNCES THE LAUNCH OF SP AF70-200MM F/2.8 Di LD (IF) MACRO
A Lightweight, High-Performance and Fast Tele-Zoom Realizing 37.4” (0.95m) MFD Over The Entire Zoom Range
PMA, January 31, 2008, Las Vegas, NV— Mr. Morio Ono, President of Tamron Co., Ltd., has announced the launch of SP AF70-200mm F/2.8 Di LD (IF) MACRO, a lightweight, high-performance and fast tele-zoom lens designed for DSLR cameras with 35mm full-size image sensors. The Canon mount is scheduled for spring delivery. The shipment schedule for Nikon, Pentax and Sony will be announced at a later date.
The new SP AF70-200mm Di LD (IF) MACRO (Model A001) is an F/2.8 fast tele-zoom designed for DSLRs with 35mm full-size image sensors, inheriting product concept of the existing SP AF28-75mm F/2.8 XR Di (Model A09) that is highly acclaimed as a compact and fast standard zoom lens enabling photographers to enjoy high cost performance characteristics.
While dimensional increases are confined to the absolute minimum, the new SP AF70-200mm F/2.8 Di LD (IF) MACRO zoom lens offers the best-in-class MFD (minimum focusing distance) of 37.4” (0.95m) over the entire zoom range for the maximum macro magnification ratio of 1:3.1 at f=200mm focal length, for stress-free photography, combined with the advantage of an internal focusing (IF) system.
