What does the Dual MPU do in the new Tamron 35-150mm lens?
When I tested the new Tamron 35-150mm lens I read in the description of features about the Dual MPU (Micro Processor Unit), but honestly did not know what it would do for me and my photography until I went out for an afternoon on a sailboat. In a typical lens, there is a single processor that is responsible for the focus and the Vibration Compensation feature of the lens, but with this lens there are separate processors, one for focus, one for Vibration Compensation. This can be extremely important when you are on a boat trying your best to capture images of someone while the boat is rocking left and right. Throw into the mix trying to keep the horizon level and it can be a nightmare. For my composition I wanted to place something between my subject, fellow photographer and friend Andre Costantini, that I would change focus to see how quickly it would go from the foreground back to Andre. The whole time I was doing this experiment, I kept the horizon level as well, or as close a possible. It worked great, and after I finished and pulled the camera away from my face, I really felt the pitch of the boat. Looking through the camera I had not felt it, which was a great testimony for the Vibration Compensation feature and how quickly it worked. I didn’t know what the dual processors would do before I went out on the boat, but I definitely appreciated it and understood it afterwards!
