Also, four-stop-effective Vibration Compensation helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting in difficult lighting conditions. Additionally, the lens is moisture-resistant and has a fluorine coating on the front element to enable its use in trying environmental conditions.

Telephoto zoom is designed for full-frame Canon EF-mount DSLRs, however can also be used with APS-C models where it provides a 112-336mm equivalent focal length range.
Constant f/4 maximum aperture affords consistent brightness throughout the zoom range and offers improved control over depth of field.
VC image stabilization helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake by up to 4 stops or more effective handheld shooting in difficult lighting conditions.
An Ultrasonic Silent Drive autofocus motor, along with a High-Speed Dual Micro-Processing Unit, 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 with a maximum magnification ratio of 1:3.1.
Internal zooming mechanism maintains the overall lens length during use for easier, more intuitive handling and faster performance.
A 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.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.
Optional tripod collar is available, which features an Arca-type compatible foot, for more stable use atop a tripod.
Compatible with optional Tamron teleconverter for extending the effective reach of this lens, and also compatible with optional TAP-in Console for fine-tuning select focusing adjustments and for updating lens firmware.

Tamron 70-210mm f/4 Di VC USD Reviews

Brilliant Value To Cost Ratio, But Test Its Autofocus

By Daniel
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2022-11-15

This lens will give you sharp images with good color. Bokeh is smooth and pleasant. Please refer to attached images which are unedited from the RAW file, but cropped to show best detail: Coffee cup shot at 70mm @ f4.5 and bycyclist shot at 210mm @ f4. The build is solid and light enough to carry without discomfort for hours. I only caution buyers to test the lens' auto focus. It's quick and does well with my Canon 6D MkII, but there seems to be a bug that may apply to this lens. I use back button focusing, to which it is responsive, but when I press on the shutter button to take the exposure, the focus will occassionally shift rather slightly; just enough to ruin a shallow DoF image. I've checked the stabilization settings using the Tap In Console, and setting it to Capture seems to help, but not all the time. The only sure fire way to prevent this issue is to turn VC off. I'd give it three stars for this issue, but the savings in comparison to the Canon version is incredible, so that deserves a star in itself considering that the EF mount is all but officially dead.

Not a fast lens, but it least it maintains a consistent aperture throughout its' zoom range. Fairly compact.

Worth the sale price

I already have the Tamron 70-200 F2.8, and love it. I bought this F4 Because of the lighter weight to use on my star tracker, and lug around if I don't need the extra stop. Mounting collar is questionable at this reduced weight, but $130 is too much! the one on my F2.8 is the same size, so I use it to ballance the weight on tracker.

My experience with this lens wasn't so good let me tell you why I reallly really really wanted this lens so much it was on discount then it went up again to the regular price I called BH and they were kind enough and so helpful like the best ordering experience ever !!! But here's the problem when I received the lens I thought It would work out of the camera turns out it's doesn't so I ordered The tap in turns out that didn't work I called Tamron and they explained that you need the original canon adapter to be able to take advantage of the auto focus this is something you have to take in mind im so disappointed because I'm going to the ppa on Sunday and I wanted To use the lens other wise I would Have giving it the 5 stars but thank you BH !! I love Your service

Would this lens be compatible with the Canon m50 mkii when using the efm-ef/efs adapter, would the af work properly?
Asked by: RP
This lens (via adapter from EF) works well with the M50 and 50mkII. It's not the fast focus lens, when the light is not bright. Yet everybody knows that, but you can make very nice photos when you manage the small camera with the comparatively large lens. But for that you have the image stabilization. I learned to balance the camera and lens with NOT supporting the lens at the adjustment ring for the distance. I am satisfied with the results of this combination of lens and camera. Don't forget: you get a 24 Mp photo with a crop factor of a 336 mm lens.
