Style:Canon  |  Product Packaging:Standard PackagingProduct DescriptionTamron Auto Focus 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6 Di LD Macro Zoom Lens for Canon Digital SLR Cameras (Model A17E) From the ManufacturerDesigned for optimum handling ease and Reliability (it weighs only 458g <16.2oz.> ), it's Excellent for handheld shooting with full-frame along with APS-C format SLRs.

Its unsurpassed close-focusing ability (down to 0.95m (3.1 feet ) or even 1:2 in macro mode) causes it to be perfect for nature and portrait photography. Zoom directly to 300mm in a distance AF 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6 Di LD Macro Zoom Lens Characteristics Low Dispersion (LD) Glass for Greater Lens Sharpness Low dispersion (LD) glass elements in a lens lessen chromatic aberration; the inclination of light of different colors in the future quickly to different elements of focus at the image plane. Chromatic aberration lowers the sharpness of a picture, but glass using an extremely low dispersion indicator, has less of a tendency to separate (defract) a beam of light into a rainbow of colors. This characteristic allows the lens designer to effectively compensate for chromatic aberration at the centre of their field (on axis), a particular problem at long focal lengths (the telephoto end of the zoom range), and also for lateral chromatic aberration (towards the borders of the field) that often occurs at short focal lengths (the wide-angle conclusion of the zoom range.)"
