Tamron is a leading manufacturer of single-lens reflex (SLR) camera lenses for both standard and digital cameras, and closed-circuit TV (CCTV) lenses. It is the U.S. sales subsidiary of the optics manufacturer Tamron Co., Ltd. Currently based in Commack, New York in the United States, the company was originally founded in 1950 in Japan by Takeyuki Arai under the name Taisei Kogaku Kogyo. A few years later, in 1959, the headquarters and a main plant were established in Hasunuma, Omiya-city. The first branch office was established in New York in 1969.

Tamron sells its merchandise through authorized dealers, which must display a certified logo on their website or inside their store. You can find these dealers through a link on Tamron's official website. There are numerous dealers throughout the United States and online. Be sure to check for the certified logo, because purchasing a lens or closed-circuit TV camera from an unauthorized dealer can void any manufacturer's warranty that may have been available.

Tamron sells lenses that are compatible with SLR cameras or digital SLR cameras (DSLR). Some of the lenses available for cameras include all-in-one zoom lenses, fast zoom lenses, wide and telescoping lenses, and macro lenses. Numerous sizes are available for various photography needs. For security uses, Tamron also sells CCTV lenses and small dome-shaped cameras for security monitoring.

Tamron also features numerous guides and hands-on tests on their website to assist consumers in choosing the lens that will best suit their needs. If you've purchased your first SLR or digital single-lens reflex camera, you will find these guides to be helpful when you are looking to upgrade your lens or simply try out a new style of photography. Tamron digital camera lenses are also popular with experienced photographers.

Tamron constantly works on developing new lenses with new technology. Some lenses have extra features to make picture taking easier, such as a new feature called Vibration Compensation (VC). This works to prevent camera shake, a frequent problem in hand-held photography which causes the camera to move slightly when the shutter button is pressed, resulting in a blurry photo.

When shopping for a lens for your camera, always verify that the lens you are considering will fit onto your particular camera. Some lenses are proprietary and will only work with the original manufacturer of the camera, while some are interchangeable and will work with most camera brands. Tamron lenses generally work with Nikon and Canon cameras, along with Pentax and Sony, but always verify the specifications before making a purchase.
