The new SP70-200mm F/2.8 G2 (Model A025) telephoto lens reimagines the highly acclaimed Model A009 with enhanced optical performance, improved VC (Vibration Compensation), faster AF speed and accuracy, and shortened MOD (Minimum Object Distance) for greater flexibility. What’s more, compatibility with Tamron tele converters provides additional focal length. In keeping with the SP series’ innovative technology, the lens is designed to be durable, flexible and resilient enough to rise to any occasion. Every aspect of the SP 70-200mm F/2.8 G2 (Model A025) zoom has been improved, providing high image quality and enhanced bokeh throughout. Optical design features include XLD (extra Low Dispersion) and LD (Low Dispersion) glass to eliminate chromatic aberrations across the entire zoom range, ensuring optimum resolution― even at the edges. eBAND Coating designed exclusively for this new zoom offers superior anti- reflection properties, greatly minimizing flare and ghosting. And refined bokeh provides spectacular background effects from nearly any angle. Tamron’s best-in-class VC* image stabilization performance is equivalent to 5 stops**, according to CIPA standards. Plus, this lens offers a choice of three VC modes, including one exclusively for panning. Now you can match the VC mode to your shooting conditions and enjoy sharp, jitter-free handheld shooting―even in low light. * Among 70-200mm F/2.8 interchangeable lenses for full-frame DSLR cameras.

On Par with the Nikon 70-200 E FL, which I Tested As with many Nikon users taking a serious look at this Tamron G2 lens and the Nikon FL, I researched to gain insight as to relative performance of these two lenses, deciding whether or not I should go with the $1300 Tamron or fork up the $2800 for the new Nikon E FL, anticipating that I would not buy another 70-200 f/2.8 for years to come.As an aside, I own an A7RII and an A6500, for which I have some of the best glass. The 90mm macro and 55 f/1.8 are razor sharp lenses, by the way…

I think this was my best option among affordabe, fast 70-200mm lenses for Nikon I was looking to replace an older, mechanically deficient 80-200, f/2.8 Nikkor which would “jam” up between manual and auto focus & miss the photo. (I like the old lens, but just not worth the cost to fix it). Thus, my shopping began. I was interested in the Nikon 70-200, f/2.8 E (newest lens), but couldn’t hope to afford it at more than $2,500.I looked at used 70-200 VRII and Sigma and earlier Tamron 70-200 f/2.8 offerings. Fortunately, I was able to find this US warranty (6 years!)…

Be Ready For Sheer Surprise! I did my own test of this lens today against my Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8G VRII ED on my D7200. I also have the D800E but have not mounted this Tamron on that body just yet. The short answer is that aside from some minor differences in contrast, the Tamron wins out in terms of image sharpness and vibration reduction as compared to the Nikon version of this focal range. This is not easy for me to say as I have just owned the Nikon lens for about 14 months and have used it for only a dozen or so…
