Tamron SP 70-200mm 2.8 Di VC USD G2 Lens Canon EF, Nikon F (FX) | A025
This SP 70 - 200mm f/2.8 Di Vc USD G2 Tamron lens is portrayed by its constant f2.8 optics, an improved layout contains one XLD element and five LD elements to suppress color fringing and chromatic aberrations for remarkable clarity and color accuracy while both BBAR and eBAND coatings have been applied to reduce flare and ghosting.

The 70 - 200 mm f/2.8 also features an advanced Vibration Compensation (vc) system that compensates for as much as five stops of camera shake. A ring-type Ultrasonic Silent Drive autofocus engine is also available for responsive and accurate performance and also provides full - time manual override control for fine-t. In relation, the lens is also dust-resistant and moisture-resistant to work with environmental conditions, and is paired with a rotating, removable tripod foot with an Arca-type compatible base for seamless shooting using a tripod or monopod.

  • Traversing a valuable scope of telephoto lengths, this lens is intended for full frame DSLRs, although can be utilized with cropped sensor models where it will give a 105-300mm equivalent focal length range.

  • Consistant f/2.8 most maximum aperture is an advantage when working in low-light environments and manages predictable execution all through the whole zoom range..

  • One XLD (extra-low dispersion) and five LD (low dispersion) elements are featured in the optical design to noticeably limit color fringing and chromatic aberrations for enhanced clarity, color fidelity, and obvious sharpness.

  • Both eBAND and BBAR coatings have been applied to stifle ghosting and lens flare for enhanced contrast when working in backlit situations.

  • VC image stabilization helps to diminish the appearance of camera shake by up to 5 stops for more successful handheld shooting in difficult lighting environments. Three separate VC modes are also available to handle various shootings styles: Mode 1 is a balanced setting for overall use, and provides both a stabilized viewfinder image and stabilized results; Mode 2 is designed exclusively for panning movements; and Mode 3 is optimized to stabilize only during acquisition without stabilizing the viewfinder image.

  • A ring-type USD autofocus motor provides fast and accurate focusing operation to handle working with moving subjects. This motor also provides full-time manual focus control, and focusing on subjects is possible as close as 3.1' away.

  • A sealed, dust- and moisture-resistant construction is an advantage of this lens' when used in inclement environments, and a fluorine coating has also been added to the front lens element to protect against dust, dirt, and smearing.

  • A removable rotating tripod collar provides an Arca-type compatible foot and is an advantage when working with the lens atop a tripod or monopod.

  • Durable metal barrel uses a curved, ergonomic shape for easy handling, and both the zoom and focus rings are textured for enhanced grip.

  • Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a satisfying bokeh quality.

  • An electromagnetic diaphragm is used for more precise and consistent control of exposure, especially when shooting at high continuous shooting rates. Because of its unique layout, this lens is only compatible with select Nikon F-mount cameras that support an electromagnetic diaphragm, including the D3100, D3200, D3300, D3400, D5000, D5100, D5200, D5300, D5500, D5600, D7000, D7100, D7200, D300, D300s, D600, D610, D700, D750, D800, D800E, D810, D810A, D3x, D4, D4S, Df, D500, and D5 DSLRs.
