First Review of Tamron 70-180mm F2.8 FE Lens

Krolop&Gerst (German) has just posted the new Tamron 70-180mm f/2.8 Di III VXD lens. He said this new lens will be “around 1.200 Euros”,  which is half the price of the Sony 70-200mm F2.8 GM lensMoreover it weights  only 815g, much lighter than the 1480g from Sony.

Below are the advantages:

  • The Tamron is sharped in the corners
  • The Tamron seems to have a better light transmission (1/3 stop faster in terms of real world t-stop)
  • It focuses close 85cm vs 96cm
  • The Tamron is a lot cheaperSAR
  • The Tamron is lighter
  • The new autofocus system works very fast in both stills and video mode

Tamron 70-180  F2.8 lens offers the same (if not a tiny bit better) optical performance as Sony GM lens. Tamron is definitely the best choice and will be the Sony 70-200mm lens killer!
