Precise, quiet autofocus that allows for fine adjustments.

The B011's autofocus mechanism uses a stepping motor that's an ideal match for the contrast detection autofocus system used in Sony mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera series. The stepping motor's actuator allows finely tuned control of angular rotation, and since it drives the focusing mechanism directly without an intermediate reduction gear, it also provides superbly quiet performance.

You can count on this to enhance autofocus capability when shooting video. Furthermore, after adjusting with the autofocus mechanism, you can use the Direct Manual Focus (DMF) function to allow delicate adjustments to the image. In short, you can capture the scenes you want, focused exactly as you want them, every time.

VC image stabilization: It provides up to a four-stop anti-shake advantage when you're shooting handheld, so you can make full use of the lens's capabilities even in low light.

The B011 provides a crisp, vivid viewfinder image plus the operational advantages of Tamron's acclaimed VC (Vibration Compensation)* image stabilization technology. This high-power zoom lens enables easy handheld shooting even in low light or at telephoto settings. Tamron's VC technology uses our exclusive, proven, ultra-reliable three-coil system in which three drive coils move the shake-compensating VC optical groups in the lens electromagnetically via three steel balls. This allows the photographer to shoot sharp still images handheld at shutter speeds up to four stops slower than would be possible without VC. The upgraded "moving coil" system in the B011 places the drive coils adjacent to the shake-compensating optics, allowing a lighter, more compact design. The new lens also benefits from design enhancements aimed at providing quieter operation.
