Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2 Zoom Lens (for Nikon)
Discover a new way to be true to your vision.
The Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2 Zoom Lens has fast autofocus and Vibration Compensation that exceeds your highest expectations. The new SP70-200mm F/2.8 G2 (Model A025) telephoto lens re-imagines the highly-acclaimed Model A009 with enhanced optical performance, improved VC (Vibration Compensation), faster AF speed and accuracy, and shortened MOD (Minimum Object Distance) for greater flexibility.
What's more, compatibility with Tamron teleconverters (sold separately) provides additional focal length. In keeping with the SP series' innovative technology, the lens is designed to be durable, flexible and resilient enough to rise to any occasion thanks to the moisture / dust proof construction.
High resolution meets beautiful bokeh:
Every aspect of the SP 70-200mm F/2.8 G2 (Model A025) zoom has been improved, providing high image quality and enhanced bokeh throughout. Optical design features include XLD (eXtra Low Dispersion) and LD (Low Dispersion) glass to eliminate chromatic aberrations across the entire zoom range, ensuring optimum resolution -- even at the edges. eBAND Coating designed exclusively for this new zoom offers superior anti- reflection properties, greatly minimizing flare and ghosting. And refined bokeh provides spectacular background effects from nearly any angle.
MOD reduced to 0.95m:
Improvements to the new SP 70-200mm F/2.8 G2 extend well into the lens barrel. Tamron has reduced the MOD from 50.7 in. (1.3m) in the older model to 0.95m (37.4 in), allowing a maximum magnification ratio of 1:6.1. The shorter MOD, coupled with the superb optical performance of this new zoom, allows you to significantly broaden your range of expression.
Accuracy in action:
The USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive) ring-type motor, along with two high-performance microcomputers, ensures excellent focusing speed and accuracy. The Full-time Manual Focus override allows you to make fine adjustments while using AF, without having to switch from AF to MF mode.
Keep it steady with VC equal to 5 stops:
Tamron's best-in-class VC image stabilization performance is equivalent to 5 stops, according to CIPA standards. Plus, this lens offers a choice of three VC modes, including one exclusively for panning. Now you can match the VC mode to your shooting conditions and enjoy sharp, jitter-free handheld shooting -- even in low light.
Two exclusive new tele converters:
Two exclusive tele converters, which match the optics of the new SP 70-200mm G2, offer 1.4x and 2.0x magnification, and provide a maximum zoom range up to 400mm. These new tele converters extend focal length of the master lens, making it possible to take pictures in farther telephoto ranges.
Reduce flare and ghosting with eBAND and BBAR:
Two highly developed lens coating technologies, eBAND (Extended Bandwidth & Angular-Dependency), which uses nanotechnology, and BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) combine to increase light transmission and to reduce flare and ghosting to imperceptible levels. The lens delivers high contrast, sharp and clear images.
Electromagnetic diaphragm system:
An electromagnetic diaphragm system is employed. More precise diaphragm and aperture control is possible because the diaphragm blades are driven and controlled by a motor through electronic pulse signals.
Lightweight, easy-to-hold tripod mount is compatible with an Arca-Swiss type quick-release plate:
A new textured grip and Arca-Swiss style tripod interface enhance both speed and utility. And because the tripod mount is made of lightweight magnesium, it is much easier to carry.
Fluorine Coating for protection and safe cleaning:
The front surface of the lens element is coated with a protective fluorine compound that is water- and oil-repellent The lens surface is easier to wipe clean and is less vulnerable to the damaging effects of dirt, dust, moisture and fingerprints.
Moisture-proof and dust-resistant construction:
Ideal for use in outdoor photography, SP 70-200mm G2 offers Moisture-Proof and Dust-Resistant Construction, thanks to special moisture-proof and dust-resistant sealants used at every joint and seam. The sealant material helps to prevent the intrusion of any dirt, dust or water droplets compared to conventional moisture-resistant construction.
Compatible with the TAMRON TAP-in Console:
The optional TAP-in Console provides a USB connection to your personal computer, enabling you to easily update your lens's firmware as well as customize features including fine adjustments to the AF and VC.
Intuitive design and leading-edge performance:
In keeping with the SP series' "Human Touch" design, the A025 is both durably built and user friendly. The focus and zoom rings, textured grip and Arca-Swiss style tripod interface enhance speed and utility. And like all SP models, this new lens has an ergonomic shape for easy gripping and a lens hood with smooth curves that match the barrel.
