Tamron Establishes VIP Club for Registered Owners of Multiple Lenses

By Justin Heyes on December 28th 2017

Keeping in line with the company’s position as a manufacturer of exceptional optical products from machine vision, factory automation, and surveillance applications to interchangeable camera lenses, Tamron’s philosophy is ‘New Eyes for Industry‘.

Tamron’s SP series aims to compete optically with Canon L and Nikon NIKKOR ED lenses. Short for ‘Superior Performance,’ these top-of-the-line lenses are developed with high-resolution standards in mind, providing superior optical performance, handling, and functionality, over previous generations.

Photographers have begun to forgo OEM offerings and even the much beloved Sigma for the new The Generation 2 Tamron lenses, or G2, with their improved optical performance, faster autofocus, and excellent image stabilization.

For the devotees and converts, Tamron has not seen that loyalty in vain, as  recently the lens manufacturer has developed a new VIP Club for registered owners of multiple Tamron lenses.

Launching in 2018, the VIP Club will include select users who have registered their Tamron lenses through the company’s online warranty registration system from May 2011 through January 15, 2018.

There are three VIP Club levels: Silver, Gold, and Platinum.
