The new Tamron 70-200!
A lot of people have been eager to hear and see how good the new Tamron 70-200 f/2.8 VC lens is. Coming in at a mere $1499 compared to $2099 for the Canon version, it has a chance to sell well for Tamron if it can at least be close to the highly regarded Canon.
Photo News had a chance to play with one and have come away pretty positive about the Tamron. There are lots of pictures and thoughts about build, the AF and optical performance of the lens.
From Photo News
The Tamron 70-200mm F/2.8 Di VC USD brings Tamron’s legendary optical performance into the 21st century with the addition of USD and VC. The autofocus is fast with the addition of USD, the VC is effective , and the image quality is what we’re used to from this legend. Tamron has fixed a few quirks of the older version and we’d feel comfortable taking this lens on any job or just a walk in the park. The deciding factor for this lens will be the price point.
The Tamron 70-200 f/2.8 Di VC USD is due to start shipping on November 30, 2012.
