Tamron 70-200mm G2 VC Lenses

November 2017 sees Tamron phasing out the older Tamron 70-200mm VC and Non VC models for it's next generation, G2, version. Finally, Tamron has come to market with a superb lens having learned from it's mistakes of the past. That is not say that prior models of the Tamron 70-200mm f2.8 have been rubbish (quite the opposite) but the new Tamron 70-200mm G2 VC Lens is going to blow your socks off. Or is it ???

It appears from reviewers that they feel that the Tamron 70-200mm G2 is as good as the Canon 70-200mm 2.8 IS but for three things. The Tamron auto focus system is not as good / reliable as the Canon, the Tamron vignettes most notably at 200mm and the Tamron at f2.8 can be a bit soft ... so, for me I disagree with the reviewers in that they appear to willing to put up with those (major) issues but as a Pro I am not. For me, those three things are big things.

If you are a regular to our site you will recognise the following reviewer, Dustin Abbott who as usual will give you an excellent comparison. We are sure that there is also a comparison out there comparing the Tamron 70-200mm to Nikon's 70-200mm.

I commented above about finding a video comparing the Nikon 70-200mm f2.8 lens to this Tamron 70-200mm G2 lens so I decided to go and find a comparison video .. here is it.

Below you will find some older reviews of prior models of the Tamron 70-200mm. We have left them there in case you are considering buying a second hand lens .. but be very careful. A dropped lens is never the same.

Which is the best option for you to buy when it comes to buying a Tamron 70-200mm lens? Do you need to pay the extra for the VC aka Vibration Control?. Whether you wish to buy this Tamron lens for a Canon DSLR or a Nikon DSLR the principals are the same.

The first of our reviews is of the Tamron 70-200mm NON-VC Lens. We hope you will find it informative.

In time we will post a review of the VC version of this lens.

The following playlist is reviews of both the 70-200mm VC and NON-VC lens produced by others. We hope that you will enjoy the additions reviews and that they help you make a decision as to which is the best version of the Tamron 70-200mm for you.

#Camerasdirect encourages everyone to look at the manufacturers site to read their stated specifications and reviews for comparision. This link takes you to Tamron USA page for its 70-200mm VC lens.
