The presence of seniority-like isomers along the Z = 50 isotopic chain have been an experimental limitation to the investigation of the electromagnetic properties of the low-lying states in the light Sn nuclei. Combining a multi-nucleon transfer reaction with the Recoil-Distance Doppler-Shift technique, the lifetimes of the 21+ and 41+ excited states have been directly measured in the neutron-deficient 106, 108Sn isotopes for the very first time. The emitted γ rays were detected by the AGATA array, while the reactionproducts were uniquely identified by the VAMOS++ magnetic spectrometer. The control of the direct feeding of the statesby gating on the Total Kinetic Energy Loss, together with the unique capabilities of the two spectrometers, was crucial for the measurementin 108Sn.
