Tamron SP 70-200mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2 Telephoto Zoom Lens for Canon

This Tamron telephoto lens reimagines the highly acclaimed Model A009 with:

  • enhanced optical performance
  • improved VC (Vibration Compensation)
  • faster AF speed and accuracy
  • shortened MOD (Minimum Object Distance) for greater flexibility

What’s more, compatibility with Tamron tele-converters provides additional focal length.

Enhanced Optical Performance

The new Tamron SP 70-200mm f/2.8 G2 (Model A025) telephoto lens reimagines the highly acclaimed Model A009 with enhanced optical performance, improved VC (Vibration Compensation), faster AF speed and accuracy, and shortened MOD (Minimum Object Distance) for greater flexibility. What’s more, compatibility with Tamron tele-converters provides additional focal length.

In keeping with the SP series’ innovative technology, the lens is designed to be durable, flexible and resilient enough to rise to any occasion.

Features

  • Nikon F-mount / FX format
  • Aperture range: f/2.8-22
  • One XLD element, five LD elements
  • eBAND, BBAR & fluorine coatings
  • Ultrasonic silent drive AF motor
  • VC image stabilisation
  • Dust & moisture-resistant construction
  • Removable Arca-compatible tripod mount
  • Rounded nine-blade diaphragm

High Resolution Meets Beautiful Bokeh

Every aspect of the SP 70-200mm f/2.8 G2 (Model A025) zoom has been improved, providing high image quality and enhanced bokeh throughout. Optical design features include XLD (eXtra Low Dispersion) and LD (Low Dispersion) glass to eliminate chromatic aberrations across the entire zoom range, ensuring optimum resolution — even at the edges. eBAND Coating designed exclusively for this new zoom offers superior anti- reflection properties, greatly minimising flare and ghosting. And refined bokeh provides spectacular background effects from nearly any angle.

Minimum Object Distance Reduced to 0.95m

Improvements to the new SP 70-200mm f/2.8 G2 extend well into the lens barrel. Tamron has reduced the MOD from 1.3 m in our older model to 0.95 m, allowing a maximum magnification ratio of 1:6.1. The shorter MOD, coupled with the superb optical performance of this new zoom, allows you to significantly broaden your range of expression.

Accuracy in Action

The USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive) ring-type motor, along with two high-performance microcomputers, ensures excellent focusing speed and accuracy. The Full-time Manual Focus override allows you to make fine adjustments while using AF, without having to switch from AF to MF mode.

Keep it Steady with Vibration Control Equal to 5 stops

Tamron’s best-in-class VC* image stabilization performance is equivalent to 5 stops**, according to CIPA standards. Plus, this lens offers a choice of three VC modes, including one exclusively for panning. Now you can match the VC mode to your shooting conditions and enjoy sharp, jitter-free handheld shooting — even in low light.

Compatible with the New Tamron Tele-Converters

The SP 70-200mm G2 is compatible with the new, optional Tamron tele-converters, which match the optics of the lens. They offer 1.4x and 2.0x magnification and provide a maximum zoom range up to 400mm. These new tele-converters extend focal length of the master lens, making it possible to take pictures at longer telephoto ranges.

My favourite lens so far, smaller and lighter than the Canon equivalent lens, sharp throughout, with a little vignetting at the longer end-but easily corrected in photoshop or lightroom. This great looking lens produces sharp images, autofocus is fast, and 2.8 aperture works well in low light. When extra zoom range is required there is an optional 2x extender. A must-have for wedding and corporate photos.

Very versatile and capable lens

Surprising good quality for the price and you get a lot more than you pay for. The lens is all out sharp at both ends of the range 70 through to 200. Very capable lens for a wide range of photography, good for portraits, landscape and weddings. Bokeh is amazing thanks to the maximum f-stop of 2.8 that goes all the way through to 200mm. VC definitely makes a huge difference. Autofocus is quick enough and effective 98% of the time. Only downside for me so far is the weight, although I got used to that. overall, very impressed.
