The Tamron SP 70-200mm G2 (Generation 2) telephoto lens is is characterized by its bright f/2.8 constant maximum aperture, as
well as sophisticated optical and physical designs. In regard to optics,
an improved layout contains one XLD element and five LD elements to
suppress color fringing and chromatic aberrations for notable clarity
and color accuracy, and both BBAR and eBAND coatings have been applied
to reduce flare and ghosting.
Complementing the optical assets,
this 70-200mm f/2.8 also features an advanced Vibration Compensation
(VC) system that compensates for up to five stops of camera shake for
sharper handheld shooting. A ring-type Ultrasonic Silent Drive autofocus
motor is also featured for responsive and accurate performance, and
also affords full-time manual focus override for fine-tuned control.
Additionally, the lens is also dust- and moisture-resistant for working
in trying environmental conditions, and it is paired with a rotating,
removable tripod foot with an Arca-type compatible base for seamless
shooting atop a tripod or monopod.
