Tamron Launches Its First All-In-One Zoom Lens for MIcro Four Thirds Cameras
14-150MM F/3.5-5.8 DI III (MODEL C001)
June 19, 2014, Commack, New York - Tamron USA, Inc. announced the price and delivery of its first All-In-One™ high power zoom lens designed for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless interchangeable-lens cameras. The Tamron 14-150mm Di III (model C001) will be available in the USA starting June 26, 2014 at $589.
For the past 22 years since Tamron released to the market an extremely practical high-power zoom lens (28-200mm Model 71D) in 1992, the company has endeavored to continually develop high-power zoom lenses. By actively using its long-cultivated technology, Tamron has successfully developed an epoch-making compact and stylish, high-power all-in-one zoom lens that will further accelerate the attractiveness of the Micro Four Thirds cameras in the market.
When the development of this model was originally announced in January 2013, the lens was slated to feature built-in VC (Vibration Compensation). However, a series of deliberations and discussions over the course of the development process resulted in the removal of VC functionality.

About the Stepping Motor
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.
