The Tamron SP 85mm f/1.8 Di VC USD is the world's first 85mm f/1.8 lens with image stabilization, VC (Vibration Compensation). This compact telephoto lens can be used on both full frame and APS-C cameras and is ideal for portrait photography, thanks to it's large aperture and smooth, dreamy bokeh.
The lens has a superior optical formula, with 13 lens elements arranged in 9 groups, including both LD and XLD elements to counter chromatic aberration. Fluorine coating is used to minimize stray ligtht and ghosting and makes sure the images show good contrast and brilliance in all lighting conditions. The coating is also water and oil repellent, which makes it easier to keep the front element clean.
Made for outdoor use
Tamron SP 85mm f/1.8 Di VC USD has a weather resistant construction with rubber gaskets that prevent moist and dust from entering the internal components. In other words, you don't have to worry about the lens if you happen to get caught in a rain shower in the middle of a photo session. The lens is also compatible with Tamron TAP-in Console (accessory) which allows the user to perform firmware updates, adjust the autofocus and other special settings.
