Is the Tamron 150-500mm f/5-6.7 Di III VXD Lens Another Hit?

Tamron has been on a roll the last few years, producing lenses that offer great performance and image quality in tandem with smart compromises that help them undercut the prices of first-party manufacturers, often by significant amounts. The 150-500mm f/5-6.7 Di III VXD is one of their latest, and this awesome video review takes a look at the lens and the kind of performance and image quality you can expect from it in practice. 

Coming to you from Christopher Frost, this great video review takes a look at the Tamron 150-500mm f/5-6.7 Di III VXD lens. With a versatile focal length range and relatively affordable price ($1,399), the 150-500mm f/5-6.7 looks potentially quite useful for a wide range of applications. It comes with a variety of features, including Vibrartion Compensation with three dedicated modes, eXtra Low Dispersion, Low Dispersion, and Glass-Molded Aspherical elements for reduced chromatic aberrations and distortion, Broad-Band Anti-Reflection Coating for reduced flares and ghosting and increased contrast, Voice-coil eXtreme-torque Drive linear autofocus motor for fast and quiet autofocus, moisture-resistant construction, and rounded seven-blade diaphragm for smoother bokeh. Altogether, it looks like another quality lens from Tamron. Check out the video above for Frost's full thoughts.
