Tamron SP AF70-200mm F/2.8 Di LD (IF) Macro
4 March 2010
Excerpt: This Tamron costs around £620, which is a very competitive price for a constant F/2.8 telezoom such as this. The bright maximum aperture lends itself to shooting fast action, in low light, or for isolating your subject by using a wide aperture for shallow depth of field. The only third party manufacturer offering a current equivalent is Sigma, and their 70-200mm is a little more expensive at around £660, but has a silent focus motor.
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
