The wide-aperture and excellent optical performance that this lens offers is ideal for low-light photography and enriched creative composition. The lens delivers pin sharp results and remarkable contrast throughout the focal range. With a fast aperture of F2.8, impressive photos with smooth, even bokeh (background blur), can be shot helping to emphasize subjects by means of a shallow depth of field. This lens is equipped with a tri-axial image stabilizer called vibration Compensation (VC), a Tamron proprietary development. The VC feature minimises the effect of camera vibrations and shake of hand-held photography. The lens offers more photographic possibilities for shots at longer shutter speeds, making it ideally suitable for "Available Light" photography in low-light conditions.
