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...

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.

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...

Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 Di Macro Lens

 

The Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 Di Macro Lens delivers sharp images from a great focal length range and a wide/fast aperture in an economical package.The autofocus system is the clear downside to this lens.

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

Lens Test: Tamron SP 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DIVC USD AF

 

Tailor-made for wildlife and sports shooters, this third-generation 70–300mm full-frame telezoom in Tamron's SP line adds Vibration Compensation (VC) plus two innovations: an Ultrasonic Silent Drive (USD) focusing motor for near-silent AF, and an...

Tamron SP AF 70-200mm F/2.8 with Built-in AF Motor for Nikon

 

Tamron's SP AF70-200mm F/2.8 Di LD (IF) MACRO (Model A001N II) was developed under the same concept as the SP AF28-75mm

Expert review by:

Tamron SP 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di VC USD (Nikon fit)

 

Unlike the somewhat basic affair that is the Tamron AF 70-300mm Macro, the new Tamron SP 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di VC USD has all the latest bells and whistles, or at least their high-tech, optical equivalents.

Fast and near-silent USD autofocus, with full-time manual override ; Very effective 4-stop Vibration Correction ; Sharp at all but the longest zoom setting

Lacks sharpness at 300mm zoom setting with widest f/5.6 aperture ; 50 more expensive than Sigma's 70-300mm OS lens

The only disappointment with the Tamron SP 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di VC USD is a lack of sharpness at the longest telephoto zoom setting, at anything outside an aperture range of f/8-16.

Tamron's feature-rich new 70-300mm telephoto lens aims to go top of the class

Fast and near-silent USD autofocus, with full-time manual override ; Very effective 4-stop Vibration Correction ; Sharp at all but the longest zoom setting

Lacks sharpness at 300mm zoom setting with widest f/5.6 aperture ; 50 more expensive than Sigma's 70-300mm OS lens

The only disappointment with the Tamron SP 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di VC USD is a lack of sharpness at the longest telephoto zoom setting, at anything outside an aperture range of f/8-16.

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.
