Tamron Lens Calibration

Tamron Lens Calibration

Tamron Lens Calibration

For Tamron lens owners we are now able to offer a unique calibration service which goes beyond the methods offered by the camera manufactures. Canon offer the ability to calibrate certain Canon zoom lenses at both ends of the focal range, Nikon unfortunately only allow for one calibration setting to be applied.

Calibration results from third party lenses can differ wildly from one end of the zoom range to the other. This means that on the 150-600 G2 for example, the AF micro-adjustment results could be: -13 at 150mm, -5 at 300mm and +7 at 600mm. Tamron allow, with the use of Tamron Tap dock, the ability to calibrate at different focal lengths throughout the zoom range

This scenario would make a huge difference in the sharpness of your images at different focal lengths and knowing the results for specific focal lengths would do wonders to the sharpness to your images.

Whilst we can’t guarantee that the results would be like this as every lens is different, but as always after spending so much on photographic equipment you might as well get the best results you can.

Using our preferred software method we are able to offer a more accurate calibration system that is biased to the camera the lens is intended to be used with.

This facility is available with the following lenses

Tamron Lens Calibration and More!

This unique calibration can therefore yield the best professional results from your Tamron lens.

For a price of £129 we can not only calibrate your zoom lens, but adapt its behaviour to your needs. (Prime lenses calibration £99)

Improvements beyond the calibration include:

  • Customising the VC (Vibration Compensation) to your preferences. *
  • Tailor the full-time manual focus override for your preference. This can help wildlife photographers when looking through dense foliage for example.
  • It is possible for us to alter the autofocus range of your lens. This is ideal for people using the lens for things like aviation, preventing the lens from hunting when the subject is far away. This enables you to achieve focus quicker. **
  • We can check and update the firmware of your lenses, improving the stability and performance of your lens.


On primes, we can calibrate for three different distances, and for zoom lenses, adjustments can be made for up to eight magnifications. This means that calibration is possible for a combined total of up to 24 positions! ***
