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 105-300mm.

The Nikon version of this lens incorporates a motor built-in to the lens itself, which gives this lens the capability to autofocus with all Nikon DSLR cameras (including the D40 and D60 series). In addition, as a result, focusing will be quieter and more responsive.

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, 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 Nikon AF is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 166.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best 70-200mm For Nikon I am a Tamron convert. Now I own my lenses rather than rent them. This lens takes amazing photographs in all light levels, I compared it side by side with the Nikon 80-200 and found color reproduction to be truer and the 80-200 had a tendency to overexpose highlights. The autofocus is fast (I believe the autofocus complaints refer to an older version of this lens) The manual focus is extremely sensitive, which in my opinion is great as it allows me to track insects such as dragon flys much easier. Do yourself a favor, before spending money on the more expensive Nikon glass, give the Tamron pro lenses a shot, you won't be dissappointed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love from the first sight I have not used it for a very long time yet and I am not a professional photographer, so I do not have a lot of comparison with other lenses but I must say that I am so happy with my purchase. Photos made with that lens are very sharp and I am very pleased. I like it a lot and I would recommend it for its price because I think that it is a great deal! I think that the only minus is that the lens does not have the vibration stabilizer but then again you can always use tripods or other objects to hold the camera still and also once you get familiar with the lens it is going to be easier in my opinion. I personaly love this lens!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good Deal OK, maybe not quite as fast as the comparable Nikon cheap f2.8 lens, but a good lens for the budget-conscious photographer who wants to get professional-quality shots without a high price tag. Great bokeh for portraits, wildlife shots, etc. A little sluggish focusing on fast-moving objects, but do your homework, pre-focus and predict where you expect the action to happen, and you can catch some awesome action shots in low light venues like basketball, Friday night high school football, etc. I'm a lowly free-lancer in small town West Texas, but I got an assignment at a college basketball game and got the attached shot.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice images....slow focus For quite some time I'd wanted to add a fast telephoto zoom to my gear. After doing some research I chose this lens. The only cons I'd read were regarding the slow focus; for me this was not unfounded. Although the sharpness of the lens was very good, especially for a lens at this price level; the slow autofocus was more than I could accept. Most of my shooting is landscape and wildlife which don't always call for fast focus, but when I needed it's much appreciated. For shots without much action and for shooting on a tripod/monopod, I'm sure it would make most photographers happy. I returned the lens and ordered the Nikon 80-200mm f2.8. The Nikon was a bit more expensive, but well worth the difference. ...

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product I took a chance & bought the lesser version of this lens, as it has no image stabilization. But with practice, this has not been a problem for me. I bought it for a wedding shoot & I like it. Practice is useful. It hunts in low light, but you just need to be prepared for that. I usually always shoot wide open with it. I find the results pleasing. I still am considering the other pricier version. We will see. But I have used it on my Nikon F5 film camera, my d300 & d300s & now my d810. Much better results with the 810 of course. I have even used it with my d5100. The macro function also isn't disappointing and I have used my extension tubes on it & it performs well.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cheap Lens.. Sharp Picture! i bought this lens online 2 weeks ago and took a few sample shots and the sharpness of this lens is superb! autofocus speed is not bad at all, the built is just ok, pretty reasonable for its price. love this lens! but i had to send it back for a replacement coz I may have had a bad copy, the one i got stops auto-focusing after a few minutes and i had to reboot my camera for it to start working again.. i haven't received the replacement yet but i am hoping that it was just a case of bad copy. i have considered replacing it with sigma 70-200 which has a better motor and slicker built but the deciding factor for me is the sharpness of this lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow Whats not to like.... Hello everyone, I purchased this lens about 6 months ago and it has exceeded my expectations... I compared both the Sigma and Nikon Vr lens to this and found for the price I could not go wrong... I didn't need vr because I shoot with plenty of light... This lens has survived 3 major fall's 2 out of a lifted f250 onto concrete... What part about don't open that door don't they get... It focuses near silently and has never let me down... With this lens alone I have taken about 6,000 photos, and the lens has never faulted in focus, unless it's my error... Love it Dont spend 1500$ for the Nikon if you don't need, VR I find with my sb-600 I can light up an area at night about 45 yards out... while zooming in at 200 2.8

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Lens I have owned this lens for about a week now, and used it for nature and sports photography. It is fast and takes great pictures that are clear and crisp with my D40 and D80. Not too bad handling without a tripod or monopod. The only thing I dont like is the focus ring clicks forward and back to change from autofocus to manual focus and is easy to switch if you grab it wrong when in a hurry, costing a little time. Would be better if it had a traditional button to switch between M/AF. Otherwise (in my own opinion) It takes just as good pictures as the spendy Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VR which I have owned also.
