Tamron  14-150mm F/3.5-5.8 Di III VC

Overview

Description by Tamron:

  • With one LD (Low Dispersion) glass element, two molded-glass aspherical elements and one hybrid aspherical element, Tamron's new Micro Four Thirds high-power zoom lens delivers leading-edge high image quality by thoroughly compensating for aberrations.
  • The ingenious optical design achieves a compact body with a filter diameter of just 52mm despite being equipped with the Tamron's highly regarded VC (Vibration Compensation) mechanism.
  • A stepping motor optimized for this model provides silent, quick and accurate auto focusing.
  • This lens is equipped with Tamron's acclaimed VC (Vibration Compensation) mechanism. The VC mechanism reduces image blur caused by camera shake to deliver sharp images. This makes it possible for hand-held shooting in any unstable position with extremely light mirrorless cameras. The VC is also optimized for movie images and smooth scenes.**
  • The metal lens barrel exterior is available in two colors: black and silver, providing the most popular color options to match high end cameras.
  • Using a circular diaphragm***, this lens achieves spectacular background blur effects.

* VC (Vibration Compensation) is Tamron's proprietary image stabilization mechanism. 
** The lens VC feature should be turned off, when used with cameras that have built-in image stabilization functions (such as those made by Olympus). 
*** The circular diaphragm retains a near circular shape even when taken two stops down from a wide open position.

Reviews

For some reasons only known to Tamron's managers, the company chooses to enter the micro 4/3 format with a 14-150mm zoom, closely matching the popular Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 14-150mm f/4.0-5.6 and the elder Panasonic Lumix G Vario HD 14-140mm f/4-5.8 ASPH MEGA OIS lenses.

Now, if they had bothered to shave a millimeter or two off the wide end, it would have been really exciting news, but as it stands now, the micro 4/3 mount is served by no less than 11 zoom lenses all sharing the 14mm wide end. Is there enough playing field for the New kid?
