Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 Di VC USD Lens

 

While the Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 Di VC USD Lens is not Tamron's first 70-200mm f/2.8 lens, it is their first version to include vibration control.VC alone is a great upgrade feature, but the upgraded image quality in this lens is also big bonus.This...

If you budget is not strong enough for the Canon, I highly recommend the Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 Di VC USD Lens.While it is not an inexpensive lens itself, the 70-200 VC delivers image quality worthy of its price.This lens is going to deliver some great...

Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di VC USD Lens

 

The Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di VC USD Lens features a popular and useful focal length range, a nice design, USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive) AF and VC (Vibration Compensation) for a very affordable price.

There are many 70-300mm (or similar) lenses available.What sets the Tamron apart from the rest is its combination of good image quality (avoid 300mm), nice physical features and vibration compensation for a value price.

Tamron SP AF 70-200mm Di LD (IF) Macro Lens Review

 

The SP AF 70-200mm F2.8 Di LD (IF) Macro is Tamron's latest lens, announced at the end of February 2008. A fast telephoto zoom for the more budget-conscious photographer, the design features 19 elements on 16 groups, including three Low Dispersion (LD)...

Excellent optical quality ; Very good macro capability ; Relatively lightweight for its class, but still generally solid build ; Low price

Slow and noisy autofocus motor ; Somewhat clunky manual focus switchover mechanism ; Tendency towards slight misfocusing (at least in Canon mount)

The SP AF 70-200mm F2.8 Di LD (IF) Macro is certainly a very creditable effort by Tamron to produce a high quality, yet affordable fast telephoto zoom. Indeed if we look solely at the studio optical tests, it is a resounding success, as the technical...

Lens Test: Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 Di VC USD

 

Among pros, image-stabilized 70–200mm f/2.8 full-frame zooms have become must-own glass. They're in Canon ($2,499, street), Nikon ($2,397), Sigma ($1,399), and now Tamron's catalogs ($1,499), and we see them at weddings, sporting events, in portrait...

Minimal distortion and great stabilization

Slightly less sharp at 200mm

Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6 LD Di

 

Tamron has formulated this lens to be suitable for digital cameras and film cameras, with an imaging circle covering the 35mm sized frame...

Good macro, nice design

Average performance, slow AF

Good macro and a nice design, but control over fringing fails to impress and you need to stop down to get best results

Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di VC USD

 

With a solid construction, crisp optics and an impressive VC mode, is the Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di VC USD a must-have for action fans?

The fantastic image quality from this lens places the Tamron high in the 70-300mm field. With such a modest price-tag and a reliably responsive VC mode, it really does have a lot going for it. Our only gripe is the fact that it really needs a tripod...

Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di LD Macro

 

The 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di LD Macro from Tamron has a fairly robust, chunky design, which is surprising considering it weighs in at just 435g.

A Very Solid Competitor to Canon L

 

I bought this lens to replace the 70-200mm f/4l Canon I had. I am kicking myself for NOT doing it sooner!! Honestly, I should have just saved and bought this first. It is a solid solid lens no joke. The color is amazing, it's razor sharp, killer in low...

Razor Sharp, Superb Color, Has VC, Affordable, and a 6yr Warranty too!

Not a single one.

Product Specifications

Kit includes: ♦ 1) Tamron AF70-300mm F/4-5.6 Di LD Macro Lens for Canon EOS MT ♦ 2) Vivitar 62mm Series 1 UV Multi-Coated Glass Filter ♦ 3) Precision Design Deluxe 6 Piece Lens & Digital SLR Cleaning Kit ♦ 4) CapKeeper 2 Lens Cap Strap The Tamron 70-300mm is a compact, lightweight, ultra-tele zoom that is ideal for taking pictures at a distance particularly when the subject is difficult to approach such as in nature and wildlife photography as well as at sporting and theatrical events. It also enables you to isolate your subject from the background for eye-catching, dramatic portraits. This versatile lens has macro capability with a magnification of 1:2 for incredible half-lifesize close-ups of small objects such as flowers, insects, jewelry, and coins. Tamron's Di (Digitally Integrated) design uses improved multi-coatings optimized for both Digital and Film SLR Cameras. This lens also incorporates LD (Low Dispersion) glass to correct chromatic aberration, resulting in clear, sharp, and beautifully vivid images. This high-quality Vivitar UV Filter blocks the invisible UV component of light from the sky, which can cause blur and to which many color films react with a blue cast. UV Filters are ideal for photography in high altitudes (in the mountains), by the sea and in regions with very clean air. The pictures gain brilliance and disturbing blue casts are avoided. Keep your lens cap securely attached to your lens with the convenient, simple-to-use CapKeeper. Never lose a lens cap again! This 6-piece cleaning kit contains everything you'll ever need to properly clean your lenses, including a Hurricane Air Blower, Lens Cleaning Tissues, Lens Cloth, Lens Cleaning Liquid, Brush and Cotton Swabs.
