Pros: Price quality, size and weight in order with the product

Cons: VC activates late, really sharp only at f4.0

Opinion: Bought a long time ago with the aim of taking some sports photos and taking some shots during a safari in South Africa. Very happy with the purchase because with a low price you take a very good optics. The lack of sliding elements on sight make it, even if it is not tropicalized, however resistant to dust and water in a moderate form. A sore note, in my opinion, is the activation of the VR: it takes even 2 seconds and therefore forces you, to make shots not posing, to always hold the camera button in half, thus leading to a quick discharge of energies. If you shoot at a sharp stop by pressing the shutter button the "violent" activation of the VR can even lead to more choppy shots than without the active stabilizer. To say is that once activated the stabilizer is really effective, as is a Nikon home VC system. The sharpness, at F2.8 sincerely does not excite me, as it is not exciting the blurry that is quite stylized and little "smeared". At f4.0 the sharpness becomes really good and it is usually to this diaphragm that I prefer to shoot. Of course you have to respect good lighting conditions that must be present otherwise, if you want to shoot at dawn or at dusk, I advise you to buy something else. I've never had any problems with focus, in fact the inner moped is really fast and hit the lens right away!

Pros: Sharpness already at 2.8, effective stabilizer, fast focus, quality/price

Cons: Reactivity stabilizer, tires, contrast

Opinion: I bought it more on a whim than my mother that for my need, despite this I am aware of its quality and versatility and worth all the money spent. It is already sharp at full aperture and at all focal lengths, the zoom and focus rings are sliding. What I appreciate most of this lens is the effectiveness of the stabilizer, I was surprised: at 200 mm I can shoot at 1/4 s despite my hands are very, very, very, flickers. On the other hand I do not digest the reactivity of the same stabilizer, because I find it slow to activate and sometimes it does with a sharp click visible from viewfinder or screen. Another point in disfavour are the tires of the nuts, which are consumed too quickly, are detached and come off even using them little and very carefully. Last point to disfavor is that this lens returns very contrasecond images to my liking. Compared to Canon 70-200 2.8 II I found the Tamron more compact and as a result to me it seems to be more balanced as weight when mounted on the camera.

Pros: Price sharpness Stabilization

Cons: AF in Liew view not Performane

Opinion: Use Guy'il lens on APS c I would say excellent even at f2.8 the only flaw in the AF in Liew view that sometimes crashes, I have to turn the machine on and off. Anyway I recommend to all the sharp purchase at full aperture af fast on the viewfinder weighs a bit but it's worth the cost of a 24 70 G2 you have everything you need for a good price given the optical quality it returns.

Pros: Price, sharpness, stabilizer

Cons: it is not tropicalized

Opinion: A 200mm TA has a good sharpness that from f4 to F8 becomes excellent. At other focal lengths things improve slightly from TA to F11. Only at f32 seemed to me too unclear, but I have not invested much time in studying the diaphragm yield so closed. The quality step between f2.8 and f4 is good, but in absolute terms at f2.8 the images that it produces are already very good. The mtf tests confirm what I found on the field. The homologue Canon ef 70-200 f2.8 is IIL has an extra point to f11 for the rest is hard to distinguish them. The stabilizer allows you to shoot freehand at 200mm even at 1/15 of a second, at least this applies to me. In practice on the used market the only alternative canon attack comparable to this Tamron is the 70-200 f2.8 L smooth as the is II costs at least twice. The weight is in line with its category, which means that the materials used are similar. The color Black makes it less noisy than the biancone and, although not decisive, it is an aspect that I appreciate. In sintesi: excellent compromise thanks to a great price and a truly professional quality.

Pros: All: color rendering, sharpness, stabilization, af

Cons: even if not enough, the lens is unusable with the hood mounted in reverse

Opinion: excellent lens, used on 6d and 6d mkii, excellent detail already at TA, effective stabilization (knowing well lens and body, and having the hand accustomed, I can shoot at 1 / 30-50 to 200 mm), suffers a bit of focus breathing, but with the right precautions I use it without problems for photos and videos. Optics with a not indifferent weight, as it is right for a lens of its caliber. Color rendering perfect even compared to the older canon brothers. Last autofocus not so slow as we tend to believe, I find it very reactive (even the camera body does a lot) in a bit slower than the older canon brothers but nothing more. Personally I used it for indoor dance shows, with critical lighting conditions, but I was never disappointed. Purchased after months of comparisons, tests and videos on youtube, who is evaluating this perspective I can only say buy it with your eyes closed! If I have to give an indication of maximum I classify them in this way: canon is 1st ver, tamron vc 1st ver, canon smooth evenlymerit or slightly lower than the g2 version of the tamron, canon is 2 ° ver.rnGood Light
