Experience the smooth control and effortless hand held results from the Tamron 28-300 XR Di VC (Macro) lens. Tamron’s 28-300 XR Di VC (Macro) lens sophisticated Vibration Compensation enables you to capture the real mood of a scene without having to revert to the use of flash or a tripod. Tamron's award winning design incorporates their 3 axis control Vibration Compensation system, enabling you to take sharp images in situations which previously would not have been possible, especially in low light or capturing fast moving subjects whilst zoomed at the maximum 300mm focal length. This lens covers an extremely broad range of focal lengths, from a wide 28mm to a super telephoto 300mm (the 35mm equivalent of 43mm to 465mm when used on an APS-C digital SLR) and is compatible with both full frame cameras and those with APS-C sized chips.
The Tamron 28-300 XR Di VC (Macro) lens is ideally suited to travel photography or any situation where a broad zoom range is required to minimise occasions where you need to change to a different lens.
VC (Vibration Compensation) Mechanism Reduces Hand-shake
The proprietary VC (Vibration Compensation) mechanism developed by Tamron features a configuration providing control along 3 axis. The compensator lenses float on super smooth ball bearings, enhancing response performance and allowing for a simple and compact construction. The lens incorporates a highly accurate gyro sensor for detecting hand-shake, which combined with a 32-bit RISC CPU, gives smooth and effective anti-vibration control.
Superb Minimum Focus & Macro Capabilities
The AF28-300mm F/3.5-6.3 XR Di VC LD MACRO boasts a top-class close focusing capability with a minimum focusing distance of just 0.49m (19.3") over the entire zoom range, providing a maximum macro magnification ratio of 1:3 at the 300mm telephoto end. This makes this lens a fantastic performer throughout its focal range in a wide variety of situations including close macro photography.
Lightweight and Compact
Tamron has reviewed the roles that respective barrel parts play in order to achieve such a compact lens with its built in Vibration Compensation. As a result this lens is a mere 99mm in length when closed, with an impressive weight of just 555g.

Comments about Tamron 28-300mm VC Di AF Lens - Canon Fit:
Bought this for the VC as Iam getting on and find I can't hold things as steady as I used to.Takes a second to lock but is then rock solid no problem hand holding at the long end. Have used with 2x converter and hand holding. A great lense.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
