Tamron Lens Calibration – Zoom
A Tamron lens calibration for zoom lenses consists of a single Tamron zoom lens and camera body (Canon or Nikon)
Due to the slight variations in production or after heavy usage lenses can fall out of alignment revealing itself most commonly with front or back focusing issues. Our calibration service will return your equipment to its optimum accuracy.
For Tamron lens owners we are now able to offer a unique Tamron lens calibration service which goes beyond the methods offered by the camera manufactures. For zoom lenses this can mean up to 6 individual calibration points through the focal range. The actual number will depend on how big the focal range is of the lens. For example the Tamron SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD G2 will have 6 calibration point where as the Tamron SP 70-200mm F/2.8 Di VC USD G2 will have 3 (see below).

Once calibrated we will supply a full test report for each lens.
Please note in order to undertake our calibration services our software based solution requires access via the camera’s USB port. Please ensure this is fully working before instructing Cameracal to undertake any calibration (applicable to Canon & Nikon models only).
Please note – Test results – Before & After may not initially show vast improvements. This is often due to the fact the lenses do not always resolve the optimum quality when used wide open as in the maximum aperture. Significantly sharper images can be obtained by stopping the lens to a smaller aperture
If during the test, we find this to be the case we will record images at a smaller aperture to demonstrate that sharper images can be obtained by taking comparison shots before and after calibration.
We also offer a lens optimum test in which we can identify the best aperture in which to shoot at (often referred as the lens sweet spot) and the point at which diffraction occurs.
