Tamron


May 7, 2018 Tamron 70-210mm f/4 VC USD Image Gallery

A focal range not recently tackled by third party lenses is covered by Tamron’s newest lens – the Tamron 70-210mm f/4 Di VC USD.  A maximum aperture of f/4 at this focal length allows photographers to get high quality results with still shallow depth of field, but at a considerably lower size, weight, and price […]

December 4, 2017 Tamron 100-400mm f/4.5-6.3 VC USD Review

Several years back Tamron started a new revolution of affordable supertelephoto zoom lenses with the SP 150-600mm f/5-6.3 VC USD. The lens was an instant success and spawned a whole new class of such lenses. About this time last year Tamron launched a second generation of that lens (G2), and it showcased their new build […]

November 13, 2017 Tamron 100-400mm f/4.5-6.3 VC Image Gallery

Earlier this year Sigma released a relatively affordable 100-400mm lens that delivered excellent optics competitive with the much more expensive first party options from Canon, Nikon, and Sony.  I was impressed by the Sigma 100-400mm f/5-6.3 OS Contemporary when I reviewed it, but noted that its autofocus system, while accurate, wasn’t quite fast enough for […]

October 10, 2017 Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2 Review

There are few lenses more important to a lens makers lineup than the 24-70mm f/2.8 lens. A 24-70mm is valued because of the versatility of its zoom range, which covers a number of very important focal lengths, including 24mm, 28mm, 35mm, 50mm, and 70mm. All of these (save perhaps 70mm), are focal lengths that prime […]

September 6, 2017 Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 VC G2 Image Gallery

While doing my recent review of the Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 OS ART I got a persistent question from my readers and viewers, “When are you going to review the new Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 G2 lens?”  The answer is now!  The G2 version of Tamron’s popular stabilized 24-70mm lens was delayed for a while in the […]

July 24, 2017 Tamron 18-400mm f/3.5-6.3 VC HLD Review

Tamron has long been the company that pushes the envelope in “all-in-one” zoom design and have held the top honors of having the largest zoom range in a DSLR lens for most of the past ten years. Years ago I used the Tamron 18-270mm VC lens with a 15x zoom range for a period of […]

April 11, 2017 Tamron 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 VC HLD Review

  APS-C shooters can be forgiven for feeling like they sometimes get left out in the cold when it comes to quality development for their platform. Canon, for example, has an interesting dichotomy. Many of their lens releases for full frame are of the premium “L” series type, while it seems that an abnormal amount […]
