Pros: Excellent sharpness, beautiful colors, bokeh, fast and reliable autofocus, very effective stabilizer, pro level construction

Cons: Weight, dimensions (on the EOS R it is really large, also taking into account the adapter ring), a bit of TA vignetting

Opinion: I bought the Tamron SP 70-200mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2, used, to replace two lenses in my possession: the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM II and the Sigma 105mm 2.8 EX DG Macro OS HSM. I use the Tamron on Canon EOS R, obviously with adapter ring. Due to the price out of my reach for the original Canon 70-200 RF, both the f/2.8 and the f/4, I opted for this lens of which I read great reviews. In the past I had tried the previous version that had pleasantly impressed me for the optical quality, a little less for the focus, not as fast and reliable as that of the Canon. Returning to the G2, The first impressions coincide with those of the reviews I have read here. First of all, the optical quality is really excellent, even at full aperture, certainly comparable to that of my (former) Sigma 105 macro at the same focal length. The autofocus is also OK, so far I have not encountered any uncertainties with the EOS R, even in low light conditions. It will be slightly less fast than the corresponding Canon but for the use that I make of it (portraits, landscapes, not sports photography) enough and advances ... The stabilizer is very effective, let's say that up to 1/30 - 1/40 s I had no problems with moving, surely the 4 f / stop declared are all there. So, let's talk about the slightly less positive things. The biggest problem is weight. 1 kg and a half plus a hecto of adapter make 1.6 kg: you can certainly not think of wearing it hanging around your neck, if not for a short time. After a few freehand shots, although you can keep it firm thanks to the excellent stabilization, the left arm begins to sore and you have to let it rest. I recommend, when possible, to use a monoped, not so much to stabilize the lens (by the way, in what position should you hold the VC in this case?), but not to burden the arms. Another thing I noticed, a bit strange: the first time I mounted it on the EOS R, changing the aperture from the top bezel next to the shutter button, you could hear a slight click with each shot, then disappeared. It happened to me a second time, but only at the beginning, then it disappears. I will keep this phenomenon under observation, the shopkeeper told me not to worry. Mystery... Let's move on: the EOS R, while recognizing the lens when mounted, has no data to be able to activate the corrections of chromatic aberration, distortion, vignetting etc. Fortunately for chromatic aberration this Tamron has none, the distortion is present but not a problem, while the vignetting is visible at the widest openings. The only way to correct it is to act via software. I use PT Lens that also corrects the distortion automatically but through the profile of the previous Tamron 70-200, with slight discrepancies. Overall I am extremely satisfied with this Tamron lens purchase, which I preferred to the rival Sigma Sport because of the 3 hectances less weight and the lower cost. I highly recommend it, but don't use it for casual trips: too heavy and cumbersome!

Pros: Large lens

Cons: Perhaps the weight, over time, the arms suffer.

Opinion: Great lens, it has nothing to envy to others. Along with the "hawthorn" it is without a shadow of a doubt one of the best canvases on the market for DSLR. Over time the weight makes itself felt purtoppo, but works great in any condition, both in the studio and outdoors. Great compromise compared to canon. I reluctantly separated myself from it by switching to the R system. Excellent color and detail rendering, superlative AF. Tamron has surpassed herself in the production of this series. If you want a perfect pairing with 5D mk4 and 1DX, this lens is to be considered.

Pros: Colors, bokeh, sharpness already at TA all over the frame, stratospheric VC, autofocus, console compatibility, performance with extenders

Cons: Lamp of lamp, barrel paint, key arrangement

Opinion: In the days when I was a photographer by profession, the only 70-200 noteworthy were those of the mother houses. I worked a lot with the 2.8 IS II, the famous canon white, but I also knew my counterpart Nikon well (by the way, now I made myself a Nikon kit.. ). Stratospheric lenses that until recently are unattainable by third-party manufacturers. Well, yes, those days are over. This Tamron 70-200 2.8 G2, which I have owned twice, is a dream come true. Let's start with the build quality: tropicalized body, metal, relatively light, fluid and precise dials (although, to be honest, those of the Nikon/Canon are even more fluid), removable magnesium alloy collar and compatible swiss ark. The only negative points relate only to the construction aspects and in particular: the horrendous lamp (of which everyone rightly complains), the painting of the barrel (too sensitive to scratches) and the position of the selection keys as well as their protrusion (at the moment when the lens is in the "pendant" position on the shoulder strap, on contact with the photographer's body the position of the keys tends to change inadvertently). Apart from that, the lens excels in all other parameters: lightning and silent autofocus equipped with limiter whose minimum distance is by default 3m but can be modified with the console; Excellent VC with 3 positions: normal, panning and stabilization only at the time of shooting: the third mode allows you to reach up to 5 stops, but in the viewfinder the image will not be stabilized. In terms of sharpness it is a blade already at F2.8, even at the edges, but for those who want the maximum just close by a stop and up to F11 the quality is superb. The vignette is present only towards the focal points pushed to 2.8, but closing a stop the problem is solved. The rendering of the colors is wonderful and the aberrations almost non-existent. Also great is the bokeh, even closing (it has a 9-bladed circular diaphragm; interesting note: it's also electromagnetic on Nikon, so the limitations for "E" type lenses apply). Despite the focal and complex optical design, very good resistance to the flare. Duplicated with the Tamron TC-X20 extender it performs very well (fast autofocus, minimal sharpness loss and visible only to TA-driven focals), much but much better than the excellent 150-600 G2 which should only be used with the 1.4X. I absolutely recommend the TAP-IN console, in addition to being able to update the firmware (the Nikon Z ML requires version 2.0) you can calibrate it precisely and unfortunately this intervention is necessary for DSLRs. If you use it with the duplicator, it is possible (and even dutiful) to calibrate it ad hoc. In conclusion, a Mr. 70-200 who honors Tamron. Vote 10.

Pros: Sharpness, focus, blurred, value for money, weight

Cons: Lens hood

Opinion: I say I don't have all this photographic experience and I bought the lens a year and a half ago. I was looking for a lens for sports photography and spent weeks sifting through forums, tests and video reviews in an attempt to shed light on possible lenses to buy. There were some possibilities around the budget defined at the start including the Tamron 70-200 2.8 G2. From a forum user I was strongly advised this lens and, after evaluating possible alternatives, I chose to buy it. The lens is definitely a great choice in value for money. The sharpness of my specimen is really amazing, like the focus. The stabilizer exceeds the stated expectations although for the type of photographs I do I use little. If a defect is found is the lampshade, a little light given the overall quality of the lens, but I think this is a defect means as what matters is the churned out result. I am extremely satisfied with my purchase and would go back 10 more times.

Pros: A blade already at 2.8, Speed, Compactness and Price.

Cons: Maybe none. but calling yourself Tamron is a big challenge.

Opinion: Bought this Christmas, after having first the Nikon 70-200 Vr I, without infamy and without praise, and then, for a few years, the Tamron Vc version... that made me feel like Tamron had grown up in these years. I then took the ver. G2... a more compact hair, a gorgeous Bokeh, but above all sharp. Sharp.... by the way does not suffer from F/B . F/F . etc. etc. ... and it is an exceptional optics, like the previous one, but this one more, improved in stabilization and in the AF. I really recommend it for those who want to make a leap of quality without fainting and get cmq a disarming quality.
