The Tamron 150-600 mm lens, for full-frame and APS-C DSLRS (with 1.5Xmagnification factor) incorporates VC (Vibration Compensation, Tamron’s image stabilization technology), a fast USD (ultrasonic silent drive), and eBAND (extended bandwidth and angular dependency) coating, for flare and ghosting reduction.
