LENS HOOD (Ref. Figs. 1, 3-7)

A bayonet-type lens hood 1 is provided as standard equipment. We recommend shooting with the hood properly attached because the lens hood eliminates stray light that may affect the picture.

  • Using the lens hood (Ref. Figs. 3, 4 – Model F050/F051, Ref. Fig. 6 – Model F053)
    Align the hood attaching alignment mark 2 of the hood with the hood release mark 5 of the lens. Rotate the hood 1 in the direction of the arrow until the hood locking mark 3 meets the hood release mark 5.
  • Stow the lens hood 
    Model F050/F051:
    You can stow the lens hood by attaching it in reverse. Align the hood locking mark 3 of the hood with the hood release mark 5 of the lens. Rotate the hood in the direction of the arrow until the hood attaching alignment mark (2) meets the hood release mark 6). (Ref. Fig. 5)
    Model F053: The lens hood of model F053 cannot be stowed by attaching it in reverse. (Ref. Fig. 7) It has to be stored separately when you are not using it.


  • Be aware that the periphery of the photographed image may be darkened if the hood (1) is not attached properly.
  • When using the lens hood with the model F053, attach the front cap and the filter to the lens hood. Only for the model F053 the front cap and the filter can be attached to the lens hood 1.


  • When using the flash, remove the lens hood and stand as far as possible from the subject. Depending on the lens and flash used, the lens may block the light from the flash and darken the bottom of the screen. 
  • Differences in the display systems of cameras may result in the display of values different from the maximum and minimum aperture values in the specifications. This is not an indication of an error.
  • For information on the compatibility of the product with cameras, see our website. https://www.tamron.jp/en/support/


  • Remove dust and soiling on the lens by using a blower or soft brush. Do not touch the lens with your fingers.
  • The lens surface of the front element has been coated to prevent water and oily substances from adhering. Since it will repel water, do not use lens cleaners or other substances but only a dry cloth to clean the front element.
  • To clean the lens surface of the rear element, lightly wipe it starting from the center with a commercially available lens cleaning paper, a clean cotton cloth, or a microfiber cloth (cleaning cloth for glasses, etc.) soaked in lens cleaner. Do not use a silicone cloth.
  • Clean the lens barrel using a silicone cloth. Never use benzene, thinner, or other organic solvents.
  • Mildew is a major problem for lenses. Store your lens in a clean, cool, and dry place. When you store the lens in a lens case, store it with a commercially available drying agent and replace the drying agent occasionally.
  • Do not touch the lens-camera interface contacts. If dust or stains cause contact problems, signals are not transmitted properly between the lens and camera, and malfunctions may occur. 
  • If the temperature changes suddenly, moisture may form within the camera and lens and cause malfunctions. To prevent this, seal your equipment in a plastic bag or similar container. After your equipment has adjusted to the ambient temperature, remove it from the bag and use it as usual.
