B011's autofocus mechanism uses a stepping motor that is an ideal match for the
Contrast-detection AF system used in mirrorless interchangeable-lens cameras.

reduction gear, it also provides superbly quiet performance.
Tamron's VC mechanism employs a three-coil

little friction. This provides a stable viewfinder image with excellent
tracking performance that eliminates the blur from handheld shots for cleaner,
