Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 overview

  • 1Description

The Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 Di LD (IF) Macro Lens is a telephoto zoom lens that has a large maximum aperture of f/2.8 which remains constant throughout the zoom range. It also offers an excellent "close-focusing-distance" minimum of just 3.1' (0.95 m) throughout its entire zoom range, with a maximum macro magnification ratio of 1:3.1 at f=200mm. When mounted on an APS-C sensor size digital SLR camera, it provides a focal length equivalent of 112-320mm.

Di (Digitally Integrated Design) is a designation Tamron puts on lenses featuring optical systems designed to meet the performance characteristics of digital SLR cameras. Features like LD glass elements and Internal Focusing put this lens in the same category as the much bigger and more expensive professional Tamron lenses.

LD Glass
Two LD glass elements reduce various aberrations while minimizing the fall-off of light at the corners
Internal Focus
The lens neither extends nor contracts physically when focusing; all moving elements are contained within the lens barrel
Di Design
Digitally Integrated (DI) design lenses are designed to meet the performance characteristics of digital SLR cameras
Tripod Collar
The tripod mount (included), detachable in one touch, is made of magnesium alloy that reconcile lightweight and high rigidity, resulting in enhanced balance and ease of use in hand-held shooting

    Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 reviews

    70-200mm f/2.8 Di LD (IF) Macro AF Lens for Canon EOS DSLR Cameras is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 180.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from have to get used to it I use this for a multitude of shots and have been very happy with the image quality so far. I am not a pro, I use it as a dad, friend and just to play with a Canon T1i DSLR. I am finding that fine line between shutter speed and lens length to be challenging as I am way to used to using VR lenses. I need to get used to setting the shutter speed instead of relying on aperture alone as I have done with my slower lenses (with VR). I have taken some crystal clear portrait shots and a few great distance shots, this really seems to be the perfect lens for anywhere there is room to use it. I would recommend it so far highly (5 stars).

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this lens! I bought this lens for my Canon EOS 20D to go on a trip to the Pacific North West where I knew I'd be seeing alot of wildlife but wasn't sure how close I could get. I love this lens and it enabled me to get alot of neat wild life shots! It's fast - I was able to freeze a bald eagle flying and a whale breaching the water with absolute perfection! I also used it to take some of the most beautiful landscape pictures I've ever seen (if I do say so myself!). I took 700 shots while I was gone and kept over 400 of them - most of the others were only deleted because they were duplicate pics (just in case!)!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tamron 70-200 f/2.8 Macro I purchased this lens for general photography and use it with my Canon EOS 40D. Overall, it's a very good value. I am generally happy with lens in good lighting conditions. Even though there is no built in stability, the photos are very sharp and it's a good alternative to the expensive ($$$) Canon 70-200 IS. I do have some reservations and they include the fact that for the 1st time, I've received error messages indicating that there is a communication problem between the body and lens. In addition, the transition from Autofocus to Manual focus should be a little smoother.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Constant 2.8 at a great price Tamron has managed to produce a quality 70-200 f2.8 zoom at a great price. This lens is a modern design with coatings to minimize flare, keep good contrast, and maintain crispness and sharpness. It is well constructed and feels sturdy. I like the easy switch from auto focus to manual and the dampening on the zoom ring feels great. One drawback is the weight. It is a half pound heavier than it's Canon counterpart. This lens is not image stabilized and the user must be careful to keep it stable to maintain sharp images. So far I have used it in several different circumstances ranging from studio to the beach and it seems to perform as Tamron claims.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is just what I wanted! After reading lots of blogs on this lens and looking at one sample photo after another I took the plunge and bought it without seeing a professional review. It has met all my expectations. The photos are sharp through the entire zoom range and down to f/2.8. I had considered buying a Canon 70-200mm f/4 L lens but am much happier with the bigger aperture of this lens. It works for hand held people shots as well as tripod mounted flower closeups. The manual focus push-pull arrangement is much easier than the manual switch on my other Tamron lens. The carrying case is a bit flimsy but is free as well as the lens hood. Overall I haven't found a fault with this lens yet.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tamron 70-200 2.8 lens is awesome This lens really surprised me. Less than half the price of the Canon counterpart, it has awesome bokeh and crisp, sharp images. I leave it on 2.8 all the time. I really like how they simplified the shift from autofocus to manual focus. You won't ever have to take your eyes off your subject to make that shift again. It is heavy(it's a 2.8, so it would be heavy), but it's just as good as the Canon version, which I purchased from B&H 4 months ago. Now I have two awesome lenses, which is fine by me, since I have more than 2 cameras.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't be happier I am a professional newborn photogrphaer but all of my portrait lenses don't do so great at the play ground. This lens is used at the playground with my kids and for serving on the media team at church. Contrary to other reviews mine DOES focus pretty fast! It is sharp even at 2.8. My only complaint is the zoom ring isn't so smooth, but I don't care much about that. I wanted a great recreational lens at a great price and this is it! I thought I would only use it for personal use, but I would definitely take it to a family shoot.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Winner winner chicken dinner I spent so much time trying to decide between the canon, sigma, or tamron 70-200. I guess my main conern was price. Canon's price range was way out of reach and depending if you wanted the IS, pushed it even further out of consideration. I tried to do as much Internet reviews on the sigma and tamron as I could find. I found many positive reviews on the tamron and the main selling feature was the warranty. Much longer than the sigma or canon. There were many complaints on the noise and slow focus on the tamron, but I found them to be very acceptable. I would highly recommend this product to anyone.
