Pros:lightness, 2.8 opening, compactness, 10-year warranty, AF
Cons:Difficult manual MAF, lack of AF/MF button, no customizable button
Opinion:Beautiful optics, beautiful yield, high sharpness even at the most open, light and compact diaphragms, took the place without regret at 70-200. Fast and precise AF. The biggest flaw is the difficulty of manual focus, no button or switch, which always forces a few too many passages... if they had put this blessed switch and maybe even a programmable button.. would be the TOP. Positive aspect: Tamron warranty 5 years + another 5 years Poliphoto.. total 10 years...
Pros:Quality, price, brightness, and above all lightness...
Opinion:I gave back my 70 200 GM to buy the 70 180 Tamron, but before you take me for crazy I tell you that I did it "only" for a matter of weight, unfortunately some back problem made me reconsider the choice on the Sony 70/200 f/2.8 GM lens to "fall back" on this Tamron. Well I have to say I'm not sorry at all. I'm not a professional so I can't evaluate the lens from a technical point of view but in the first holiday where he followed me to the Dolomites for 5 days always on me, well I have to say that I absolutely did not regret. Bright as the GM though with 20 mm less than they don't seem to weigh; the quality is great; the Af on my sony A7RIV remained the same, fast and precise even at low brightness; Lastly not in order of importance, it is the difference in weight that compared to 70/200 2.8 GM seems a lighter abyss. That's the wonderful thing that essentially rests on my choice and I would never go back to. Clearly for those who work with photography, and has the 70/200 GM will never change it and it does well because I know it is one of the best lenses that exists in the Sony lens park, we would miss it, but for those like me who like photographing on the street so many hours and the weight makes its difference, will not regret having the tamron 70/180. The lack of stabilization is not felt at all both because of the lightness of the lens and because it is used on an already stabilized machine. In short, for now maybe also because of the little time I have it I did not find negative points, and as Aznavour sang: ... forgive me if...
Cons:I just bought it, I made 10 shots and I did not report any particular defects (I'm not a technician)
Opinion:The value for money and handling seems to me great, to be evaluated over time. The difference of 20mm between a 70-200 (I gave back my Sony f/4) is not that serious considering the gain in f/2.8 brightness and weight. The lack of stabilization is not felt given the weight and using it on stabilized machine
