Tamron announced their first ever all-in-one zoom lens for micro four thirds cameras yesterday: the 14-150mm F/3.5-5.8 Di III. This came shortly after their previous announcement of their new 28-300mm EF and 18-200mm, their first ever EF-M mount lens.
The first thing you might notice here is the lack of image stabilization on the 14-150mm. This was a conscious choice by Tamron due to the fact that many MFT cameras use in body stabilization. Otherwise, this looks to be a pretty standard superzoom, variable aperture and all.
Still, it should be noted that for many people, in most daylight situations, a lens like this is all the lens that they will need – especially on a MFT camera, where the crop factor makes the lens more like a 30-300mm – a great all-in-one range.
Priced at $589, this new 14-150mm is now available for pre-order over on B&H and is expected to begin shipping this next week.
