The lens features TAMRON VXD (Voice-coil eXtreme-torque Drive), a SAR AF drive system using a linear motor focus mechanism. The VXD boasts excellent quietness and agile performance, and achieves high-speed and high-precision auto focus. With a MOD (Minimum Object Distance) function of just 0.17m and a wide-angle lens with a maximum magnification ratio of 1:3.8, the lens provides exceptional close-up shooting capabilities. In addition, it also offers an additional mode of wide-angle macro photography.
