Pros: Optical performance, price, aesthetics, macro (little macro).

Cons: Manuel focus NOT continuous, AF useful only for static photos.

Opinion: I have to say thank you to Tamron for creating this goal, which allows photo amateurs like me to approach a lens with professional openness without too much expense. This 70-200 f2.8 was my photography school and I'm very fond of it. Let's start with listing its flaws, first of all the non-continuous manual focus and the autofocus itself. Let's be clear, nowadays this is a lens that lends itself to landscape and portrait use, however the AF sometimes does not find the subject, even if stationary, and consequently looks for it from 0.95m until infinity. Especially for this reason the inability to act in full time MF makes the shooting experience nervous. The manual focus, however, is managed by a beautiful and large ring placed at the end of the barrel. What convinced me instead is optical performance. Tamron wasn't churning out targets like the G2 at the time, able to compete with nikon ones, but I think he did a better job with this lens than expected. To make you understand I also have a newer 24-70 2.8 G1 and I think this 70-200 is relatively superior to him, especially in colors. Finally the lens is sharp already at TA (except in close ups where at 2.8 it is soft), while closing it becomes very sharp. The lack of stabilisation is certainly felt when the light falls, but honestly I have never felt able to criticize it for this also because I prefer not to have it rather than have a poor stabilization from the non-first-class objective of 2008.

Pros: Sharpness, bright, price on used (and also on the new actually), macro function.

Cons: Weight not indifferent, not stabilized.

Opinion: Taken 3d days ago, done some testing on the field and. what to say: for the price on the used is excellent. Bright at all openings, crisp and excellent color rendering. The focus is a little ballerina sometimes (I use it on Sony a7rii with Sigma adapter for Canon) but using it in manual the thing does not bother me that much. The lack of stabilization and weight make it a piece to be used almost exclusively on tripod (at least for me that with the adapter the internal stabilization of Sony is disabled). It has its years, but all in all for those who do not want to spend a fortune on the Canon or Nikon counterparts and want excellent results, it is an alternative to take into account. Do I recommend it? I'd say so.

Pros: Sharpness

Cons: Weight

Opinion: Excuse me I read in some opinion this phrase referring to this lens "... seniority of the project." Frankly I do not understand, the geometric optics have not been modified by the theory of relativity, and, more or less, it is from the time of Baruch Spinoza that lenses are made in the same way. Would anyone say that the Carl Zeiss Biogon project is outdated? No, because, like the ZEISS Biogon T-28mm f/2.8 ZM Lens Mount Leica M, f/2.8, it costs over 1,000 euros. I." given the seniority of the project" I would like to have it in my kit.

Pros: Bright, sharp at full aperture, well built, autofocus, price

Cons: It's not WR

Opinion: I Think it's the only 70-200 F2,8 non-Pentax compatible with the K1. It is an old model, superseded by the new stabilized and motorized version, but it is only built for Nikon and Canon and at twice the price. In spite of someone's opinion, the autofocus is very good even if it does not have the ultrasonic system, it hooks the subjects even with very poor light and it does it quickly without uncertainties, both with the K70 and the K1. The Construction is unexceptionable, the whole is made of metal and hard plastics and I must say that it is not a big problem the size and weight, after you got used to it. So far I have done only a few test shots but I have to say that the results are beyond my most rosy expectation, especially at f 2.8 and at 200mm, I have to say thanks especially to the stabilised sensors of the Pentax that have allowed me to shoot below the 1/60 second to Free hand. I bought it from Amazon, not so much for the convenience, but because it starts to be unavailable from other retailers, so my advice is to buy it without hesitation if you find it.

Pros: Used Price, sharpness, f/2.8 fixed on all focal lengths

Cons: Slow AF, weight

Opinion: Amazing performance Lens like optical quality, maybe a little less like AF which is a bit slow and inaccurate in low light conditions. Taken used including lens hood for €420, I mainly use it for portraits paired with the Tamron 45mm f/1.8. Crisp and wide open and blurred by scream. From the best of se between F/4 and F/8. I recommend it to those who like me is fond of portraits and extreme blurred, for those who take care of sports photos do not recommend it when the AF is not the fastest and should adequately to the G2 version more updated.
