REVIEW: Tamron SP AF 200-500mm f/5-6.3 Di LD (IF)

  • Conclusion: We found this lens light and compact enough to carry around in a standard camera bag, so for a focal length of 500mm, this has to be an advantage, making it available when needed but not necessary to have a separate carrying bag. The optical performance was up to most uses except perhaps top end wildlife or fast action sports. A handy addition to your kit with a usable focal range.
  • Pros: Lightweight and compact for focal length, Comfortable and easy to use., Good optical performance for the price.
  • Cons: Autofocus a little noisy and focus ring turns during AF, Chromatic aberrations OK but on the borderline

REVIEW: Tamron SP AF 200-500mm F/5-6.3 Di LD (IF)

  • Excerpt: This super-telephoto zoom lens from Tamron costs around £865 and has an internal focus design and is relatively lightweight for its focal range. Photographers looking for something more telephoto than the standard 70-300mm range will look to a lens like this for capturing subjects such as birds and wildlife.
  • Pros: Good resolution throughout the zoom range, Low CA at 200mm and 500mm, Relatively light weight, Filter effect control system useful when using a polariser
  • Cons: Higher CA levels at 300mm, Zoom creeps when lens is pointed downwards, 86mm filter size

Tamron SP AF 200-500mm f/5-6.3 DiLD Review

  • Conclusion: The super-telephoto zoom isn’t a lens for the mass-market, but for those looking for power, versatility and performance, this Tamron scores highly. It handles well and the filter ring is a very smart feature that, along with the inner focusing system, can really aid those using polarisers, Used with due attention and care and you’ll find it delivers very sharp results.
