DPReview completes their Tamron 70-210mm F4 VC lens review
DPReview has completed their Tamron 70-210mm f4 VC lens review and were very positive about about the thirdparty lens offering.
At a glance;
- F-Mount Lens/FX Format
- Aperture Range: f/4 to f/32
- Ultrasonic Silent Drive Autofocus Motor
- VC Image Stabilization
- Fluorine-Coated Front Element
- Moisture-Resistant Construction
- Rounded 9-Blade Diaphragm
- Compatible with TAP-in Console
It must be said that both the current Canon and Nikon alternatives have more conventional ergonomics (i.e. zoom and focus ring placement), faster autofocus motorsand of course their respective camera bodies offer built-in profiles to automatically correct for vignetting and chromatic aberration (CA). Our direct comparison with the Canon 70-200mm F4L II IS shows that lens to be a generally better performer, especially wide-open. But in our experience the Tamron balances well on more entry-level cameras, the autofocus kept up just fine with everything we threw at it, and if you take the time to shoot Raw, the lack of in-camera optical corrections is neither here nor there.
