Original RRP £1,249 | You Save £470
The Tamron SP70-200mm f/2.8 Lens G2 offers an all-new optical design delivering dramatically faster autofocus speed and image stabilization performance of 5 stops. Other new features include eBAND Coating, Moisture-Proof and Dust-Resistant Construction, Fluorine Coating and compatibility with tele converters. This SP 70-200mm is a high-speed telephoto lens that covers a range of genres, such as portraits, landscapes, sports and photojournalism.
Beautiful bokeh and full compatibility with Tamron tele converters
Bokeh has been enhanced and expanded to deliver outstanding background effects across the entire zoom range. Use of a circular diaphragm with nine blades further improves bokeh. The optical design of the new lens consists of 23 elements in 17 groups. Optimum deployment of XLD (eXtra Low Dispersion) and LD (Low Dispersion) glass elements thoroughly eliminate chromatic aberrations, which tend to become particularly prominent in high-speed telephoto lenses, across the entire zoom range, while ensuring uniform, high-level image quality even on the periphery of the image plane. The new lens is also fully compatible with the Tele Converter 1.4x (Model TC-X14) and Tele Converter 2.0x (Model TC-X20), which increase the focal length of the lens to 1.4 times and 2 times the original.
Improved VC system provides
Utilizing Tamron’s original VC (Vibration Compensation) system, which uses a moving coil mechanism, further reinforcement of the drive system power and control performance has now achieved the highest VC level in its class, with an image stabilization performance of 5 stops.
- VC MODE 1 - standard mode that strikes a great balance between the stability of the viewfinder image and the stabilization effects
- VC MODE 2 is exclusively used for panning
- VC MODE 3 prioritizes the stabilization of the captured images and forgoes the stabilization of the viewfinder image
Improved autofocus speed and responsiveness
This new lens is equipped with a USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive) ring-type ultrasonic motor, whose outstanding responsiveness and control ensures accurate high-speed focusing. Incorporating two advanced, high-performance microcomputers and optimizing the algorithm has improved both the focusing speed and accuracy compared with SP 70-200mm (Model A009). Additionally, thanks to the Full-time Manual Focus override mechanism, photographers shooting with AF can instantaneously make fine focusing adjustments using MF without wasting time by switching the AF-MF mode back and forth.
Shorter Minimum Object Distance for greater versatility
Improvements made to the focus cam and zoom cam inside the lens barrel have reduced the MOD from 1.3m in the older model to 0.95m for this model, which has a maximum magnification ratio of 1:6.1. The shorter MOD, coupled with the excellent optical performance of the SP 70-200mm, allows photographers to further broaden their range of expression.
Optimized and exclusively designed eBAND Coating
This lens features Tamron’s original eBAND (Extended Bandwidth & Angular-Dependency) Coating, a technology that combines a nano-structured layer with an extremely low refractive index with the conventional multiple-layer coatings. Optimized and exclusively designed for this new zoom, the eBAND Coating provides superior anti-reflection performance, effectively reducing any flare and ghosting. Even when taking backlit portraits, the new lens delivers flawless, crystal clear images.
Moisture-Proof and Dust-Resistant Construction
Ideal for use in outdoor photography, the new 70-200mm telephoto zoom has moisture-resistant construction because special sealants that are dust-resistant and moisture-resistant are used at every joint and seam. The sealant material helps to prevent the intrusion of any dirt, dust or water droplets, compared to conventional Moisture-Resistant Construction.
Lightweight and easy-to-hold tripod mount
A new textured grip and Arca-Swiss style tripod interface enhances both speed and utility. Because the tripod mount is made of lightweight magnesium, it is much easier to carry.
