Travel light, stay focused
The versatile 70-210mm F/4 Di VC USD (Model A034) is the culmination of our years of expertise in telephoto zoom lens development. The A034 has three LD (Low Dispersion) lens elements to correct chromatic aberrations while shooting for clear, crisp images to the edges of the frame. You will also enjoy ultra-soft “bokeh” when shooting up close. Lightweight and compact, this telephoto zoom is ideal for travel. Now you can go lightweight while greatly expanding your shooting possibilities.
Discover the beauty of close-up shooting
With a category-leading* magnification ratio of x0.32, this telephoto zoom lens achieves a MOD of just 0.95m. Get closer to your subjects and feel the freedom of shooting.

Excellent AF and reliable VC (Vibration Compensation) performance
The A034 lens includes Tamron’s Dual MPU system: a dedicated MPU (micro-processing unit) for vibration compensation and another for lens system control, including AF. Each MPU has a DSP (Digital Signal Processing) block for high signal processing that balances reliable vibration compensation with exceptional AF performance. Tamron’s proprietary VC image stabilization features 4-stops**. The USD (Ultrasonic Silent Dive) ring-type motor provides excellent response and control for advanced high-speed focusing. Additionally, a full-time manual focus override lets you make fine manual adjustments without having to switch focus modes.
** CIPA Standard Compliant. For Canon: EOS-5D MKIII is used; for Nikon: D810 is used.
nternal zoom combines reliability with stability
An internal zoom mechanism maintains your center of gravity while shooting for more stable performance. Combined with Moisture-Resistant Construction, the internal zoom creates a more comfortable all-around shooting experience. Also, since the total length of the barrel never changes while zooming, you can easily shoot through obstructions such as a wire fence at a zoo.
USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive)
Powerful ultrasonic motor for quick and dynamic subjects. It is extremely quiet, precise and allows manual control at any time.
VC (Vibration Compensation)
The VC Image Stabilizer delivers sharp and shake-free images, as well as a smooth viewfinder image.
LD (Low Dispersion)
Lens element for greater image sharpness and the correction of chromatic aberration.
Internal Focusing (IF) System
The extension length of the lens does not change during focussing and the close focussing distance is significantly reduced across the entire focusing range.
