A Review of the Affordable Tamron 70-180mm f/2.8 Di III VXD Lens

For a lot of photographers, the 70-200mm f/2.8 is the most important lens in their bag, covering a huge range of scenarios and needs. However, such lenses are considered professional optics and are often quite expensive. However, the Tamron 70-180mm f/2.8 Di III VXD sits at about half the price of comparable options and still offers good performance and image quality, and this fantastic video review shows exactly what you can expect from it.

Coming to you from Christopher Frost, this excellent video review takes a look at the Tamron 70-180mm f/2.8 Di III VXD lens. The company's 28-75mm f/2.8 Di III RXD and 17-28mm f/2.8 Di III RXD lenses have been highly popular, offering professional performance at affordable prices. In fact, the 28-75mm f/2.8 was one of my favorite lenses I have used, as its great image quality and smart compromises make for a versatile optic that won't break the bank. In fact, if you plan to fill out your kit with the standard trio of f/2.8 zoom lenses, you can easily save several thousand dollars over first-party options by going with Tamron's models. Check out the video above for Frost's full thoughts.
