Its constant f/4 maximum aperture maintains consistent brightness throughout the zoom range and offers increased control over depth of field for achieving selective focus effects.

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.

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.

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

My experience wasn't so good

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

I.m just getting used to it, but so far, definitely 5 stars. Comparing it to my Nikon 70-300 4.5-5.6 P lens...it was reviewed being a light lens. Nope! It's 5 ozs heavier than the Nikon, which is no skinny chick! No problem. It is sharp, and a stop faster than the Nikon lens. It was reviewed as being slower to focus and employ VC. Welll...maybe just a smidge, but not enough to leave you cussing a missed moment. Well- made, weather sealing, sharp. What's not to like? Tony and Chelsea Northrup did a review and comparison on their YouTube channel, and it did very well, stacked up against some of the legends For the price, you can't go wrong!

Impulse Buy Goes Right

I purchased this lens on a whim when it was on sale. It is used with a Blackmagic PCC 6K Pro. I was looking at used lenses with the same specs but at twice the price. I'm just getting into interchangeable lenses for shooting video. Works great for my needs. I posted a short video of the TAMRON 70-210 in action with the 6K Pro on my YouTube Channel OnOn2Ski.

Very good lens - great value

By Chris

I had been looking at this lens and when B&H had a sale I decided to purchase. Very impressed with the lens, and the sale price was an added bonus. While this lens might not be as sharp as the Tamron SP offerings, the sharpness is so close I can accept it. This lens gives me the range of a much larger and heavier 70-200 2.8 G2 and I can hand hold and carry as a travel / walk around lens. I do not need a tripod with this lens so that gives me much more flexibility over the larger 2.8 version. The autofocus is quick and accurate on my Canon DSLR's and EOS RP. My only comment would be the ergonomics. The zoom ring is at the end of the lens. This doesn't bother me as much as the fact that you can't access the zoom ring with the hood reversed. Not a big deal unless you are needing to get a quick shot and grab the camera/lens out of the bag without mounting the hood. Even at the full MSRP this lens is a bargain. The lens hood is included unlike Canon's non-L lenses. Unless you are needed absolute tack sharp images for larger prints, this lens is great. I can't tell much difference between this lens and the 70-200 2.8 G2 in prints up to 12X18.

Reasonably compact

Really nice that it maintains its' f stop though its' zoom range, which is essential if you're going to do a zoom during a video shot. The auto focus will not work with my Red Komodo unless I switch off the VC Image Stabilization.

Very Impressed

Extremely impressed with this lens, mind you I got it at a great price $379 and keep in mind, it is not a wildlife moving target lens but it works well for landscape. People and kids, yeah, birds inflight, no. Paired with my 5D MK III it is my go to grand kid set up and well worth it

Should I sell my Nikon d5 and buy a Sony a9
Asked by: Joel
My suggestion would be to discuss it with one of our agents via phone call, chat or our new video chat! Mainly because this is not a black & white question. The recommendation would be influenced by the type of photography you do, if weight is a big factor, if you have a lot of Nikon lenses or not and so forth. Please contact us for a more detailed answer!
