The 8-270mm Di II VC PZD (Model B008) is the smallest and lightest 15x zoom lens on the market today, a fact that was certainly appreciated by Professional Photographer Magazine in choosing the lens as the “Hot One” for the year 2012.
“As one of the photo industry’s biggest and most respected equipment competitions, the Hot One Awards represents the best new gear as chosen by a panel of independent professional photographers,” says Hot One editor Jeff Kent. “This year’s winners are a collection of innovative new products from a group of companies performing at the top of their game.”
The 18-270mm all-in-one lens features Tamron’s new Piezo Drive for autofocus and a Vibration Compensation mechanism to stabilize your images. You can buy it now on Amazon for $649 with a $50 mail-in rebate.
