Tamron's new 70-180mm f/2.8 Di III VXD lens completes the company's holy trinity of f/2.8 zoom lenses, following in the footsteps of the wildly popular 28-75mm f/2.8 Di III RXD and 17-28mm f/2.8 Di III RXD lenses. Can it keep up with the Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS? This fantastic video review compares the two to tell you if you can afford to skip the more expensive option.
Coming to you from The Camera Store TV, this excellent video compares the Tamron 70-180mm f/2.8 Di III VXD lens to the Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS lens. There is no doubt that the Sony is a fantastic lens, but at almost $2,600, it is no small investment. On the other hand, the Tamron comes in at less than half the price, making it a very intriguing alternative. And certainly, given the 28-75mm f/2.8's performance, if the 70-180mm f/2.8 can reach similar levels, it is sure to be very popular, especially considering you can fill out the entire Tamron f/2.8 zoom lineup for about the price of just the Sony 70-200mm f/2.8.
