With new lens releases, the introduction of Nikon Z and Fujifilm X mounts, and the immense satisfaction of being a part of so many photographic journeys, they wanted to say thank you to all the dreamers, content creators, professionals, and those just starting their photography adventure, for making this last year so incredible!

Two TIPA awards and three EISA awards marked the ninth consecutive year Tamron has been awarded TIPA recognition and seventeen consecutive years winning EISA awards.

20-40mm F/2.8 Di III VXD 

You don’t use your camera in the limited ways that were predominate before digital. You capture still images, but you also shoot video, so you need a more versatile zoom, and that changes everything. Finding a zoom lens highly suitable for both stills and videos has been challenging, until now.

50-400mm F/4.5-6.3 Di III VC VXD

Until now, the 70-200mm and 100-400mm zooms have been the go-to lenses for shooting sporting events. That was yesterday. Today, by starting at 50mm, this new 50-400mm F4.5-6.3 shatters those limitations. It’s the ONLY ultra-telephoto zoom that is 50mm at the wide end among lenses for full-frame mirrorless cameras.
