Great lens - obvious design flaw

  • Excerpt: Great images with this lens - using it with the D7100, and really appreciate the quickness, clarity and speed of the lens. Relatively quiet as well. Overall, those aspects are most important to me. Drawback #1 is that it is heavy, as are most lenses similar to this (I assume!

Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 VC Lens for Nikon

CDRROSS, B&H Photo
9 December 2014
  • Excerpt: After owning the Nikon 80-200 2.8D (2-Ring version) for a few years, I thought that there is room for improvement. The autofocus was a bit slow because of the screw drive and this lens was a bit prone to CA not having the latest and greatest glass technology applied.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction

heavy and clear

  • Summary: Not as clear as I'd hoped for, but I am still learning the lenses strong points. Maybe because it was a used unit, there is a problem with it. This lens is also as heavy as my Sigma 150-500mm zoom lens. It's a beast.

So far so good

  • Excerpt: Read the reviews and DXO mark and purchased this for my Nikon D610 and so far so good. What I like about his is the internal zoom which means the lens does not extend out. The focusing is fast and good.

Great value w/ 6 year warranty

  • Excerpt: I have other Tamron lenses for Nikon so I thought I would try this one as an alternative to an OEM lens. You get your monies worth and a 6 year warranty. Although it doesn't come with a soft case, it fits mounted to my D7100 in both my Kata and Click backpacks (lens hood turned backwards).
  • Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged

Impressive performance and well built!

Rodrigo, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Very impressed by the performance of this product, it is razor sharp and autofocus fairly fast. The only reason I don't give it a 5 star is because even though it's Ultrasonic, I did notice a bit of noise and tiny bit of hunting with moving objects. Extremely happy with my purchase!
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
  • Cons: A Bit Noisy Autofocus
