Tamron 70-180mm F2.8 VXD (A056) Image Gallery

Dustin Abbott

April 9th, 2020

The Tamron 70-180mm F2.8 VXD is one of the most highly anticipated lenses of 2020.  It is a fast, reasonably compact F2.8 telephoto zoom for Sony full frame mirrorless, and provides an alternative to either of the Sony 70-200mm zooms.  The 70-200mm F2.8 GM costs more than twice as much ($1199 vs $2598) and weighs 670g more (an 82% increase!)  The Tamron is 51mm shorter as well.  It is smaller and lighter even than the Sony 70-200mm F4 OSS lens.  But can it deliver the goods optically…and does that new VXD motor bring the speed.  Stay tuned to find out. I’ll be reviewing the Tamron 70-180mm VXD on my Sony a7RIII and Sony a9 bodies, and you can see photos from both cameras below.  Stay tuned for my ongoing coverage.
