Tamron's lightweight, compact, high-image-quality telephoto zoom lens with macro capability of 1:2 has improved multi-coating for optimised performance with digital SLR cameras as well as film cameras.
Flipping a macro switch in the focal length range of 180mm to 300mm obtains a maximum magnification ratio of 1:2 at a minimum focus distance as short as 37.4", enabling close-up shots of flowers, insects, and other objects that normally require the use of a specially designed macro lens. Meanwhile, this lens casually offers the distant capture and foreshortening effect pleasures of the 300mm ultra-telephoto world.
Note: Nikon mount lens has built-in focusing motor making it compatible with the Nikon D40 / D40x / D60 D-SLR cameras.
