Tamron SP AF 70-200mm f/2.8 Di LD (IF) Macro Review

What Digital Camera
25 February 2013
  • Summary: Overall, this is the sort of lens that you are likely either to love or hate. It lacks image stabilisation and its AF system is less sophisticated than its peers’ but it has a distinctive, friendly feel.

  • Conclusion: 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...
  • Pros: Excellent optical quality, Very good macro capability, Relatively lightweight for its class, but still generally solid build, Low price
  • Cons: Slow and noisy autofocus motor, Somewhat clunky manual focus switchover mechanism, Tendency towards slight misfocusing (at least in Canon mount)

  • Pros: Good build quality, Excellent resolution between 70mm and 135mm, Good value for money, Supplied lens case is an excellent design
  • Cons: Falloff in resolution at 200mm, Torque reaction during focusing may be disturbing at first

29 July 2009
  • Conclusion: If you expected that for the price of slightly above 2000 zl you can produce a better quality lens than its twice or even three times more expensive rivals, you can be sorely disappointed. Blame only yourself, because there are no miracles.
  • Cons: autofocus noisy and not very accurate,, the workmanship quality sometimes could have been better.
