Extremely high resolution and excellent contrast reproduction - Tamron SP 2,8 / 70-200 VC USD G2
The optical design based on the predecessor model SP 70-200mm has been extensively revised. The resolution performance and the contrast reproduction of the new lens are considerably higher. The tube contains 23 elements in 17 groups, including XLD (eXtra Low Dispersion) and LD (Low Dispersion) glass elements. The special lenses minimize image errors such as chromatic aberrations (color fringes), which are typical for light-strong telephoto lenses, and at the same time ensure uniformly high image quality over the entire image area.
VC image stabilization
The VC image stabilization of Tamron is based on a 3-axis winding system, the performance of which has been further improved. The reaction time of the drive unit as well as the control mechanism have been optimized so that now compensation via five aperture stages is possible. Telephoto shooting in low light is thus much less susceptible to camera shake.
Extremely fast autofocus
The SP 70-200mm G2 is equipped with an ultrasonic ring motor whose outstanding response speed ensures extremely fast focusing. By using two very powerful microchips and an improved AF algorithm, the focus speed and the precision compared to the previous model were significantly accelerated. If necessary, the automatic focus can be adjusted manually at any time without having to change to the manual focus mode (MF).
Wundervoller bokeh effect
Nine lens flaps form an almost circular opening, resulting in a very harmonious bokeh effect. Background and foreground blur in miraculous soft blur.
Versatile thanks to a shorter centering distance
By optimizing the focus and zoom mechanism inside the lens barrel, the focusing distance is shortened from 1.30 meters to 0.95 meters compared to the previous model. This allows a lower recording distance and thus a larger imaging scale. In combination with the excellent resolution performance the photographer offers a variety of new expressive possibilities.
Optimized eBAND compensation
All lens elements are equipped with a Tamron specially developed for the SP 70-200mm G2 (Extendes Bandwidth & Angular Dependency). This technology combines a conventional multiple coating and an extremely thin nano coating with extremely low refractive index. The high anti-reflective properties of this combination ensure a very effective anti-reflective coating of the lens surfaces, minimizing stray light and light reflections inside the lens. Even with backlighting, the new telezoom lens achieves makellose, brilliant picture results.
Weatherproof design and flour coating
The housing of the SP 70-200mm G2 is protected against splashes and dust at all critical points with special seals. The lens can be used safely in any weather as well as in damp and dirty environments. The front liner is provided with a water- and grease-repellent flour coating. The outer surface is thus particularly easy to clean and insensitive to fingerprints, moisture or damage by adhering dirt particles.
Arca-Swiss compatible tripod clamp
The SP 70-200mm G2 comes with a newly designed tripod clamp. It is compatible with Arca-Swiss quick-change plates and is made of lightweight, robust magnesium, as is also used in tripod construction.
