Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 overview

  • 1Description

A popular telephoto zoom for a variety of shooting applications, this Nikon F-mount SP 70-200mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2 Lens from Tamron is characterized by its bright f/2.8 constant maximum aperture, as well as sophisticated optical and physical designs. In regard to optics, an improved layout contains one XLD element and five LD elements to suppress color fringing and chromatic aberrations for notable clarity and color accuracy, and both BBAR and eBAND coatings have been applied to reduce flare and ghosting.

Complementing the optical assets, this 70-200mm f/2.8 also features an advanced Vibration Compensation (VC) system that compensates for up to five stops of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting. A ring-type Ultrasonic Silent Drive autofocus motor is also featured for responsive and accurate performance, and also affords full-time manual focus override for fine-tuned control. Additionally, the lens is also dust- and moisture-resistant for working in trying environmental conditions, and it is paired with a rotating, removable tripod foot with an Arca-type compatible base for seamless shooting atop a tripod or monopod.

Spanning a useful range of telephoto focal lengths, this lens is designed for FX-format Nikon F-mount DSLRs, however can also be used with DX models where it will provide a 105-300mm equivalent focal length range.
Constant f/2.8 maximum aperture benefits working in low-light conditions and affords consistent performance throughout the entire zoom range.
One XLD (extra-low dispersion) and five LD (low dispersion) elements are featured in the optical design to noticeably limit color fringing and chromatic aberrations for improved clarity, color fidelity, and apparent sharpness.
Both eBAND and BBAR coatings have been applied to suppress ghosting and lens flare for improved contrast when working in backlit conditions.
VC image stabilization helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake by up to 5 stops for more effective handheld shooting in difficult lighting conditions. Three separate VC modes are also available to suit various styles of shooting: Mode 1 is a balanced setting for general use, and promotes both a stabilized viewfinder image and stabilized results; Mode 2 is designed exclusively for panning movements; and Mode 3 is optimized to stabilize only during capture without stabilizing the viewfinder image.
A ring-type USD autofocus motor delivers quick and precise focusing performance to suit working with moving subjects. This motor also affords full-time manual focus control, and it is possible to focus on subjects as close as 3.1' away.
A sealed, dust- and moisture-resistant construction benefits this lens' use in inclement conditions, and a fluorine coating has also been applied to the front lens element to protect against dust, dirt, and smearing.
A removable rotating tripod collar features an Arca-type compatible foot and benefits working with the lens atop a tripod or monopod.
Durable metal barrel uses a curved, ergonomic shape for easy handling, and both the zoom and focus rings are textured for improved grip.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.
An electromagnetic diaphragm is used for more precise and consistent exposure control, especially when shooting at high continuous shooting rates. Due to this unique design, this lens is only compatible with select Nikon F-mount cameras that support an electromagnetic diaphragm, including the D3100, D3200, D3300, D3400, D5000, D5100, D5200, D5300, D5500, D5600, D7000, D7100, D7200, D300, D300s, D600, D610, D700, D750, D800, D800E, D810, D810A, D3x, D4, D4S, Df, D500, and D5 DSLRs.
Compatible with optional TAP-in Console for fine-tuning select focusing adjustments and for updating lens firmware.

    Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 reviews

    SP 70-200mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2 Lens for Nikon F is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 143.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sorry Nikon So it focus breathes more than the Nikon 70-200 2.8E FL ED and it can has a vignette starting around f4 down to 2.8.� Vignette is fixed with lens profile correction in post.� Focus and VC / VR for Nikon work great but I'm not sports shooter so maybe I'm not working it hard enough.� Build is terrific.� It even has an electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism not found in many Nikon lenses.� And, the best feature, since I got it with a $100 rebate, I could have purchased 2.3 of these lenses for one of the new Nikon 70-200 lenses.� Nikon's got to come back to earth with its prices particularly on lenses and flashes... camera bodies aren't bad.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid, Fast, Accurate Lens ...Love it This Tamron Lens replaced my Nikon 70-200 VR ii, and I could not be more happier, Autofocus is fast the VC is just unbelievable it locks the subject (in viewfinder) like you are using the lens on a tripod. and don't pay attention to those reviews / comments about lens breathing..it has a closer focusing distance than Nikon and it makes up for it ..did not see any issues at all. Users who rather have not so satisfied reviews probably got a bad copy of the lens ( That's the only negative point with Tamron)but mine was just awesome from start no focus tuning what so ever. get it you wont be disappointed. Could not be happier.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing Lens With One Flaw I love this lens! First out of the box I used it to take some shots of my boys playing football on a beach. The detail and sharpness were amazing. The build is fantastic as well. I will use this lens for weddings and nature shots primarily. I did just use it for a family photo shoot and it held up well. The one flaw I have found is the the function switches are on the left side of the lens. Several times my hand has accidentally brushed up agains the AF and switched it to MF. This is a little frustrating and I don't know what they were thinking putting it on the side. But outside of this I LOVE the quality of this lens. I couldn't imagine the new Nikon 70-200 being worth the extra $1,500.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommended I got this lens 04/21. I only can compare this one to Nikon 24-70 2.8 no VR I bought last year. I don't see difference in AF speed. The AF works better on newest cameras, I own d610 which has not the best AF system for fast action pictures. It's sharper than Nikon and has more attractive design, indeed Nikon design is more than 10 years old. Nice color saturation and contrast. AF ring is buttery smooth (however I barely use it), zoom ring at firs was little stiff, now is OK (Nikon is still better). The VC is simple outstanding (I still learn when to use it) The tap-in console was the Icing on the cake, however I don't think I'm going to use it for anything but firmware update.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Disappointed This is a lens I really wanted to be satisfied with. I just boxed it up for return to B&H. I received this 3-3-17 and have tested the lens thoroughly. The percentage of shots in acceptably sharp focus is less than 30%. It's completely unusable for weddings, which is the reason I purchased it. I traded in an older Sigma 70-200 f/2.8, which, completely puts this nerw Tamron to shame. My decision now is whether to bite the bullet for the new Nikon or wait for Sigma to come out with their new one. I have never had to return anything to B&H and I certainly did not expect to be writing this type of review when I purchased this Tamron

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well done! Bought the new Tamron 70-200mm g2 here in Shanghai yesterday as it came the same day into the stores here. Took some shots in Former French Concession, just for testing. And...wow...the VC is the first thing you feel. It's working perfectly, at 200mm on my Nikon d500 I could take sharp pictures down to 1/2.5s. Amazing. Sharpness looks like greatly improved, especially in the corners at 135mm and 200mm. Also at f/2.8 already. The focus is severe but not an issue at all as the focusing distance has been reduced to 0.91m, the effect here is really great. Color rendition and micro contrast I am checking currently. But so far so good and really another great lens from Tamron. I am sure this g2 version will give Nikon headache on pricing of the Nikkor 70-200mm fl :) Thanks a lot for this, Tamron. I would give 5/5 for this lens. Also considering the price of about 1.3k USD!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lens I made an unboxing video of this lens here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5UPPZ5pBaBY I am a Nikon/Tamron shooter; 3 of my 4 lenses are made by Tamron.� I do a lot of research before I buy a lens, so I know about all the problems with the lens before I buy it.� The biggest problem with this lens is that the switches stick out and can be flipped by rubbing against your body if you carry the lens on a strap.� Also, it could be a little sharper at 200mm. What I love about this lens is the sharp results I can get. The lens has excellent edge-to-edge sharpness, and a superb auto-focus system.� (Good AF in a lens is important because if you miss focus, then having good optics in the lens is useless.� If money matters then buy the Tamron!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from This 70-200 f.28 is a Nikon killer. At this moment in time, this 70-200 f2.8 is the best overall value for my Nikon D750 D3, and D800E. Nikon better do something about the price of their 70-200 f2.8 E series, even the VRII is over priced. Just as seen on youtube photography channels there is really no difference in IQ between the current crop of tamron and nikon 70-200 f2.8s. For $1,300 I am not complaining. I like the coatings and can shoot into the sun. The tripod mount is nice too. The lens hood does feel a little cheap and is not as solid as the nikon ones. It is impossible for me to justify the price of the nikon 70-200 f2.8
