The Tamron 70-210mm f/4 Di VC USD appears to be a reviewer’s darling. This $799 lens gets a glowing verdict:

Some lenses are impossible to dislike, and this is certainly one of them. It is compact and light compared to the f/2.8 lenses, performance is excellent and gives beautifully crisp images, handling is superb and the price very attractive. The Tamron 70-210mm f/4 Di VC USD is a lens for any Canon or Nikon user to put very high on their list and an Editor’s Choice.

Tamron gives you 5 years warranty on their lenses. And that’s juts one of the many things the reviewers liked on the Tamron 70-210mm f/4 Di VC USD. The new Tamron excels in the sharpness department, has no flare, well controlled distortion, low CA, a 5 stops image stabilisation system (named VC in the Tamron universe), and many more things to like. ePhotozine gave the Tamron 70-210mm f/4 Di VC USD 5 stars out of 5, and it’s their editors choice.

Tamron announced a very interesting lens with the SP 70-200mm F/2.8 Di VC USD G2. ephotozine posted their review, and they appear to be quite fond of the SP 70-200mm F/2.8. Quoting:

The Tamron SP 70-200mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2 lens is on the same level playing field as lenses costing up to twice as much, punching far above its weight. It may not have the same silky smoothness in operation as its more expensive competition, but it delivers the goods, making no compromise on image quality.

Add to that the amazing VC system and moisture and dust resistance and Tamron have a definite winner on their hands. Read the review…

Tamron SP 150-600mm f5-6.3 VC G2 review (improved optics and weather sealing, Camera Labs)

Tamron SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD G2

Camera Labs reviewed the Tamron SP 150-600mm f5-6.3 VC G2 megazoom. They praise build quality, image stabilisation, auto-focus among others.

From the conclusion:

An improved image quality combined with a good image stabilization, improved sealing, shorter minimum focus distance, and an acceptable size and weight makes Tamron’s new 4x super-telephoto a compelling package. It’s a pity that Tamron didn’t position it as the successor to their A011 model at the same price-point. But it certainly earns a Recommended rating.

Camera Lab’s review compares the Tamron SP 150-600mm f5-6.3 VC G2 with other similar telephoto lenses. Sample images are here, the lab charts are here.

Photography Blog reviewed the new Tamron SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD G2 lens, a relatively affordable super-telephoto lens that can reach 1200mm on full-frame with optional teleconverters.

From the conclusion:

The Tamron SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD G2 offers improved image quality with smooth bokeh and excellent sharpness, a very effective and versatile image stabilisation system, and a fast, quiet and reliable auto-focus system. Despite a modest increase in size and weight, Tamron’s optic is still smaller and lighter than the Canon and Nikon equivalents, despite offering a bigger, more versatile focal range.

Image quality is very good throughout both the focal and aperture range, with excellent sharpness consistently achieved by stopping-down one stop from the maximum aperture. Chromatic aberrations are very well controlled and flare is only ever an issue when shooting directly into the sun. The only real optical issues are a little corner shading at the maximum apertures and some mild pincushioning at the 150mm focal length. Read the review…
