  • Excellent Addition to any collection
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Denikalynn - March 26, 2021

    I went back and forth between the Canon 70-200 and the Tamron 70-200 for MONTHS. Reading all sorts of reviews and research on both lens. Both are FABULOUS lenses. I personally didn’t want to spent $2000+ on a lens YET. so I went with the Tamron and I am blow away. Sharp isn’t even a good way to describe it... RAZOR SHARP. Clear images. It is heavy but that’s the only down fall. *pictures are from my first session with it, Downtown Bangor ME.

  • Amazing lens
    Verified BuyerReviewed by PCalli456 - April 13, 2018

    I also looked at the Canon 70-200 F2.8 (because I shoot on Canon) and I found that the Tamron far exceeds the Canon for image quality and built in features like image stabilization. One other very important point is the Tamron can focus on objects or subjects that are only about 5 - 7 feet from the lens, making for some awesome Bokeh in your backgrounds. If you're in the market for this type of lens you will not be disappointed with this one!

  • Surprised by the quality and price!

    Love this lens. I've been using it for a few months now and I am more than pleased by the quality of this lens. I use a crop sensor camera and the sharpness in the photo is outstanding. The only negative critique I have for this lens is that I hate that the focus ring and zoom ring are flipped and that the ring mechanism is the same as nikon. I've gotten used to it, but if Tamron would fix this I would give it a 5/5.
