The use of an aspherical element, XLD (Extra Low Dispersion) lens, and advanced optical design technology delivers high image quality that is compatible with 3 megapixel cameras. This image quality is of a level that exceeds Full HD 1080p. Delivers F/1.6 (wide) and F/2.0 (tele) levels of brightness.
Exsisting lenses generally provide lower image quality under near-IR conditions than under visible light conditions. Tamron believes that if using "Night Mode" results in lower image quality, there will not be much point in installing megapixel class cameras. This lens maintains 3 megapixel image quality from the visible near-IR spectrums, which allows shooting video footage without the associated decrease in image quality when the camera is switched to "Night Mode". This lens heralds a new era for IR compatible megapixel lenses.
The telephoto type megapixel IR series covers the most frequently used focal ranges, from 8mm to 50mm.
