Stunning! Focus, tack sharp. Vibration reduction, amazing. Sharpest lens I own, all the others are Nikon and this is streets ahead on every metric. I can’t believe that this is the price it is at less than half the price of the Nikon. I have always used Nikon lenses, if I am in the market again I will definitely be looking at Tamron. Update: Disaster strikes, dropped the lens from height of one metre. Minor damage to filter ring everything else OK. So its tough! Sent it to Tamron repair and it took a little while for the part to arrive but once it had arrived from Germany the boys at Intro 2000 repaired and next day shipped the lens back to me. Cost of repair was reasonable, 5 year warrantee unaffected and the lens is still the sharpest lens I own with the best VC I have ever seen. Just makes me want to say even more how very pleased I am with this lens. Brilliant piece of kit for the money and built like a brick .... shed!!
Anfang Mai habe ich mich dazu entschlossen mein erstes 70-200 f2.8 hier auf Amazon zu kaufen, gemeint ist das Tamron G2. Seitdem hat das Objektiv einiges durchmachen müssen. Da ich ein Exemplar mit deutlichem Backfocus erwischt hatte, war ich zuerst ernüchtert. Ich benutze das Objektiv hauptsächlich für Sportfotografie in Amateurligen und konnte an meiner D5300 zunächst kein einziges scharfes Bild aus der Linse zaubern. Das war zu dem Zeitpunkt direkt am darauffolgenden Tag nach dem Kauf.
Llevaba tiempo detrás de un 70-200 pero no acababa de decidirme. Mis alternativas eran (para montar en una D750):
This is my first ‘real’ lens and the difference it’s made to my photos is immense. Fast, accurate focus. Great image quality. Amazing VC.
Weddings - Portraits - Events - Used for over a year without fault.
Good lens, definitely needed the Tap-in console, which I already had for the 150 - 600 G2, as I needed several adjustments for my D7200. Great image quality once adjusted, fast focus. Best results for clarity at F8 but acceptable at F2.8. Don't really use it beyond F10 but no diffraction issues upto F10.
Stunning lense, whisper quiet AF, insane VC, smooth smooth bokeh and sharp as all hell across the whole focal range. Was a very expensive treat for me but I am blown away by this lense (paired in a Nikon D500)
Is this a good lens? Well, everyone says so, but I had my first one replaced, as it was way too soft. The replacement, I thought, was quite a bit better. But I noticed that it was unreliable in its focusing (and, yes, I am aware of my technical limitations, but much worse than, say, with my Nikon 200-500 or my Nikon 70-200 f4). Eventually, I got tired and replaced it with my Nikon 70-200 f2.8 FL, which is a noticeable step up in sharpness and colour fringing (absent, not obvious). My advice, for what it’s worth, is buy a second hand Nikon from MPB (to which I sold my Tamron - very easy, but 50% down the drain. Oops) if buying new is too much. Or buy new from Panamoz, who are excellent and v cheap.
Fantastic value, good quality telephoto lens. F2.8 throughout the focal range. A little bit heavy, but appears to be solidly built and zoom action mechanism inspires confidence. The optics are excellent. Highly recommended.
Fantastic quality. Great value. Love this lens totally recommend
Ho comprato questo obbiettivo perchè avevo bisogno di andare oltre i 120mm di focale, e purtroppo non avendo abbastanza soldi per prendermi l'ultimo nato di casa Nikon ho dovuto ripiegare su qualcosa che non mi costasse quanto un rene e un polmone. Bè risultato...ho preso il nuovo Tamron G2 e devo dire che fino ad ora è stato l'acquisto migliore mai fatto per la reflex.
Best lense purchase what I’ve ever made.
Love this lens
When I decided to purchase a super zoom lens this Tamron model fitted the bill for performance and price. It produces
I was worried, that lens would have issues on my Z6 with the FTZ. I needn't have worried, I was shooting straight out of the box with no issues.
