A Year With the Affordable Tamron 70-180mm f/2.8 Di III VXD Lens

Tamron's holy trinity of f/2.8 zoom lenses has been a runaway hit for the company, offering smart compromises that bring professional-level quality and performance at prices that significantly undercut those of first-party options. The 70-180mm f/2.8 Di III VXD is the longest of the trio, offering a versatile focal length range and wide maximum aperture suitable for a wide range of scenarios. This great video review discusses how it holds up after a year of usage. 

Coming to you from Stefan Malloch, this excellent video review takes a look at the Tamron 70-180mm f/2.8 Di III VXD lens after a year of usage. The company's 28-75mm f/2.8 Di III RXD and 17-28mm f/2.8 Di III RXD lenses have been huge hits, offering professional-level performance at prices often about half those of first-party options. In fact, the 28-75mm f/2.8 was one of my favorite lenses I have had the pleasure of testing, as it offers fantastic image quality in a small and portable package all at a budget-friendly price. So good are the prices that you can actually fill out the entire holy trinity for about the price of one first-party lens. Check out the video above for Malloch's full thoughts.
