Tamron SP AF70-200mm f/2.8 Di LD (IF) Macro lens - is it love or hate? The What Digital Camera Tamron 70-200mm gives it a thorough test...

The SP AF 70-200mm F2.8 Di LD (IF) Macro is certainly a very creditable effort by Tamron to produce a high quality, yet affordable fast telephoto zoom. Indeed if we look solely at the studio optical tests, it is a resounding success, as the technical quality of the images this lens can produce is...

  • +

    Excellent optical quality, Very good macro capability, Relatively lightweight for its class, but still generally solid build, Low price

  • -

    Slow and noisy autofocus motor, Somewhat clunky manual focus switchover mechanism, Tendency towards slight misfocusing (at least in Canon mount)

1 November 2008

Because of the increasing number of D-SLRs with full-frame sensors, Tamron is upgrading several of their multi-platform lenses to the Digitally Integrated standard. The most recent model, the 70-200mm f/2.8 Di, is optimized for D-SLRs regardless of the sensor size but also provides outstanding...

Optical expert Gary Wolstenholme gets to grips with Tamron's high speed telezoom. This Tamron costs around £620, which is a very competitive price for a constant F/2.8 telezoom such as this.

  • +

    Good build quality, Excellent resolution between 70mm and 135mm, Good value for money, Supplied lens case is an excellent design

  • -

    Falloff in resolution at 200mm, Torque reaction during focusing may be disturbing at first

    Consistent Output, Durable, Rugged

    Heavy, Slow Focus

SUMMARYIn addition to this lens, I have owned the Nikon 80-200mm f2.8 ED, the Nikon 80-200mm f2.8 AF-s, the Nikon 70-200mm f2.8 VR, and have used the Sigma f2.8 EX. This lens is on-par for sharpness with the Nikkor glass, and far better than the Sigma, which is a mess in terms of aberration and...

    Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

    although the 2.8 f stop was my draw to this product and the price it simple was not worth the money

    Tamron Quality I have been using NIKKOR lens for my D300 at events through out my life as a even photographer and have always has success with the quality of these lens after only using this lens less then 60 days I found that I could not focus the lens any more when the lens was sent to Tamron they...

So far so good! I was a little bit skeptic with purchasing something so much cheaper than a Nikon Brand, but it has taken some great shots at our sons football games! I would give it 5 stars but We have only used it a few times and Im not that familiar with it. Still though....
