We are excited to tell you about the brand new Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 G2 Lens. Just like its popular predecessor, the new Tamron 70-200 has an amazing f-stop range. It also has 23 lens elements and nine aperture blades for that beautiful bokeh bubble.
The optics include XLD and LD glass to eliminate chromatic aberrations for the sharpest images and eband coating to minimize flare and ghosting. The benefit of improving the glass is also passed down to the USM focusing motor, ensuring accurate high-speed focusing, which helps you nail down those fast action shots.
Some of the other major changes include an improved minimum object distance (MOD) of 0.95 meters, or 37 inches. Tamron also made improvements to its vibration compensation allowing for as much as 5-stops equivalent to the standards of CIPA (Camera & Imaging Products Association). You also get three different choices of VC control modes.
The front surface of the lens is coated with a protective fluorine compound that is water and oil resistant, making the lens one of the easiest to keep clean from dust, dirt, moisture and fingerprints.
One of the other major design changes is the addition of the Arca-Swiss style tripod interface, which makes it easier to remove from most tripods without fumbling for a separate quick release plate. You just latch it down, lock it in, and it’s good to go! The Tamron 70-200mm G2 Lens is one of Tamron’s most durable lenses for the outdoors. Every joint and seam has a moisture proof and dust resistant sealant. With these improvements to the optics, the new Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 G2 is the lens to have for action and portrait photography!
