Tamron 70-210mm F4 Di VC USD Review (DPReview)

Tamron 70-210mm f/4 VC USD at a glance:

  • EF-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • Aperture Range: f/4 to f/32
  • Ultrasonic Silent Drive Autofocus Motor
  • VC Image Stabilization

  • Compatible with TAP-in Console

DPReview tested the new Tamron 70-210mm f/4 VC USD, a relatively inexpensive option in this zoom range.

From their conclusion:

The Tamron 70-210mm F4 is a great telephoto lens option with relatively few shortcomings considering its reasonable price point. Its optical performance should represent a meaningful upgrade for those using entry-level 55-200mm or 55-250mm kit zooms, and the F4 aperture saves weight and expense compared to constant F2.8 aperture alternatives.

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. Read the review…

Another quite positive review for the Tamron 70-210mm f/4 VC USD. It may not be able to compete with Canon’s “L” glass but it appears to deliver bang for the bucks.

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.
