The B011's autofocus mechanism uses a stepping motor that's an ideal match for the contrast detection autofocus system used in mirrorless interchangeable-lens cameras. 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 full-time manual 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.
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. 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.
