The 70-200mm f/2.8 lens is one of the most important in a wide variety of photographers' bags, but such lenses are rarely affordable. Nonetheless, with third party alternatives becoming both more available and of higher quality in recent years, it is a great time to look at different options. This great video review takes a look at the Tamron 70-180mm f/2.8 Di III VXD lens.
Coming to you from Wes Perry, this excellent video review takes a look at the Tamron 70-180mm f/2.8 Di III VXD lens. Tamron's 28-75mm f/2.8 Di III RXD and 17-28mm f/2.8 Di III RXD lenses have been runaway hits for the company (and the 28-75mm f/2.8 is by far one of favorite lenses) by offering smart compromises while maintaining good performance and image quality. What makes the 70-180mm f/2.8 such an intriguing lens is that it sits at about half the price of the majority of such lenses but still offers very good performance — likely good enough for the majority of needs. So affordable are Tamron's f/2.8 zoom lenses that you can purchase the trio for just about the price of just the Sony 70-200mm f/2.8. Check out the video above for Perry's full thoughts.
