Tamron SP AF 70-200mm f/2.8 Di LD IF Macro

(2 customer reviews)

This camera glass has a high-quality build and is manufactured with precision. It has lens elements that reduce chromatic aberration and produce sharp photos. The lens coating increases the clarity of the image and reduces glare. The autofocus is fast and accurate, but it also has a manual focus option. The bokeh, or the out-of-focus areas in the photo, is smooth and pleasing to the eye. The aperture can be adjusted to create a shallow depth of field, which is useful for portraits. Overall, this photographic lens is a great option for photographers who need a high-quality telephoto zoom lens. There are alternatives from other brands, but Tamron SP AF 70-200mm f/2.8 Di LD (IF) Macro is a reliable and popular choice.

– Solid build quality
– Smooth operation

– Inconsistent sharpness
– Erratic focusing
– Loose fit at the lens mount

While the Tamron SP AF 70-200mm f/2.8 Di LD (IF) Macro lens has a solid build quality and smooth operation, it is let down by inconsistent sharpness and erratic focusing. The loose fit at the lens mount also adds to the overall negative experience. It is possible that the lens tested was a bad copy, but with these issues, it’s hard to recommend it. If you’re considering this lens, I would recommend trying it out and testing it thoroughly before purchasing. Alternatively, there are likely better products available in the market in a similar price range.
