Pros: Sharpness, stabilization, versatility, construction, dock calibrable

Cons: weight (but it's normal), sport, hood (then I explain)

Opinion: NIKON D780: Hi, I state that I am an amateur photographer, so this review will be based almost on very subjective and unprofessional elements. So it is aimed at those like me who do not use it for work. I bought this used lens, about 3 years ago at the RCE photo, perfect lens comparable to new, very reliable sellers. Immediately calibrated with the dock, it presented on average on all focal lengths an imbalance of about +-2. Ritarato these days had only some small variations, probably due to the difference in temperature. The lens returns sharp shots even at large openings, used mainly in summer to photograph daytime softball games (A1 and A2) and baseball, it was almost never opened below the f 4, with shots from outside the field of about 10-30 meters, with almost static subjects. I state that it is a type of sport that does not prefer continuous movement, however, sometimes it was used in bursts during the runs on the bases, the shots in focus were good at 30-40%, I can not tell you if it is a good percentage, but I was not so interested in running on the bases, as the arrival on the bags, where he almost never missed the fire. The shots returned are presented with warmer and contrasting tones than the other Tamron lenses I had in the past, and this was a good surprise, I was afraid to come across the washed out colors again. If I really have to find a small defect, I point out the hood, many times I remove the hood, to mount screw or magnetic filters, and as I do with other optics, not to lose it I reassemble it on the contrary, well - if remounted on the contrary it covers the entire zoom ring, preventing use. This is nonsense, but at the moment it is the only thing I point out. The anti-vibration system does its duty, as the construction of the lens itself, provides a feeling of solidity. Weight has its value, but if you take a zoom from f 2.8, you can't expect a featherweight or a plastic toy. Here, I recommend the purchase of the lens to those like me who do not use it professionally but purely amateur, the only reason for the clarification, is that I do not have the professional skills to be able to recommend it to a professional.

Pros: Bright, stable quiet

Cons: nothing

Opinion: I feel very good, I also have the younger brother 24-70 Its controls are solid, positioned in the classic points where you expect them. It has a good weight but does not bother. It is very bright and does not make strange noises. I did not need special calibrations on the Tamron base, which I did not have to buy, the photos are always sharp, I do not find any defect. I am very happy to have saved money and to have been able to take other goals.

Pros: -

Cons: -

Opinion: Bought used at a great price and in very good condition. I immediately fell in love with it. Exceptional stabilizer: I shot at some really embarrassing times. Color rendering tending to warm tones. Very good sharpness already at TA and that becomes excellent already at f/4. Fast focus and, almost always, reliable. Beware of those who complain about weights and dimensions: we are talking about a 70-200 f / 2.8 with a solid build quality and that instills safety; also we are talking about a zoom that does not extend and this inevitably increases the size. Ring for the tripod that seems to be quite solid, in some specimens it seems to be ruined due to the formation of bubbles under the paint. Rather insignificant problem from my point of view. The rings are well frictioned and the one that surprised me the most is that of the zoom: from 70 to 200mm you do it in a moment. I also liked the focus one a lot, so much so that a nice feeling was created. The thing that I personally did not appreciate very much was the hood: it seems to me extremely fragile, of the type that if it were to fall it would break immediately. However, I am still very doubtful because this flexibility and lack of consistency could be useful. As far as I am concerned, this objective deserves a lot and I would give it a 10.

Pros: Sharpness, color rendering, bokeh, three-level stabilization, materials

Cons: Vignetting at 2.8, weight and dimensions

Opinion: Bought new at 1000 euros, practically the price of a good used. As big and heavy as it is, it's pretty much the lens I use the most mounted on the 1dxmII. At the expense of what you might think, I find it fantastic for the street. Beautiful colors, excellent blurred and not being particularly bold in entering the scene, this focal length still allows me to get where without not arriving. Wonderful also for portraits. I preferred it to the Sigma 70-200 because having other lenses diameter 77 I can adapt the filters I already had. A lens to have necessarily in your kit, for me it is now irreplaceable. Very heavy and bulky, but it is the price that you pay for the opening, the build quality and this level of stabilization. Under 1000€ is a bargain.

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 hectogram 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 monopod, 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. 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 hectograms less weight and the lower cost. I highly recommend it, but don't use it for casual trips: too heavy and cumbersome!
