Tamron is a leading manufacturer of lenses for photographic, industrial, laboratory, video, digital and scientific applications. Among its many optical and mechanical innovations since the founding of the company in 1950, Tamron's development of mass-produced hybrid aspherical elements in 1997 paved the way for high ratio zoom lenses. This technology was incorporated into the groundbreaking 28-200mm and continues with the new 18-250mm developed exclusively for use on digital SLR cameras and featuring an unprecedented 13.9X zoom range. Tamron has won more awards for its high ratio zoom lenses than all other lens manufacturers combined.
