The Tamron SP 85mm F/1.8 Di VC USD is a bright, short telephoto lens available in Nikon and Canon mounts. On full frame, it is primarily a wonderful portrait lens, but on APS-C and DX cameras, it is a great telephoto lens with a focal length that corresponds with 135mm on 35mm. It is a modern lens with two strong features: it is stabilized and weatherproof.

Review Tamron 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 Di II VC HLD

The new Tamron 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 Di II VC HLD is a wide-angle zoom for APS-C and DX cameras. The range corresponds approximately with a 16-35 mm in 35-mm equivalent. This Tamron 10-24 is not an update of the old 10-24mm, but a completely new lens. You notice that in everything.

Review Tamron SP AF 70-200 mm F/2,8 Di LD [IF] MACRO (C FF)

Some time ago, we were excited about our review of the Tamron 28-75 mm f/2.8. The Tamron SP 70-200 mm f/2.8 Di VC USD complements this lens well in terms of focal length range. It's a combination with which you're perfectly prepared to go traveling—bright, reasonable compact (for lenses designed for full-frame) and solidly built. The shortest focal distance of less than a meter also makes great close-up shots possible. We reviewed this lens, which was introduced at the end of 2012, on a Canon 5D MK3, a camera with a full-frame sensor.

Review Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di VC USD SP AF (N-FF)

In August 2010, the popular Tamron 70-300 mm Di VC was released. This lens is equipped with Tamron's VC (Vibration Compensation), a 3-axial image stabilization system. It is a fairly compact and lightweight telephoto zoom, which is suitable not only for cameras with an APS-C sensor, but also for use on cameras with a full frame sensor. According to Tamron, this attractively priced lens is a premium, state-of-the-art telephoto zoom lens, whose structure complies with the strict SP (Superior Performance) standards. We tested the Tamron 70-300 mm on a Nikon D800, a 36 megapixel camera with a full frame sensor. Soon we will also publish a review of the Tamron 70-300 mm VC on a camera with an APS-C sensor (Nikon D7100).
In terms of zoom range the Tamron 70-300 mm is a perfect combination with a 24-70 mm or 24-105 mm zoom lens. A more than 4x zoom range really brings your subject to you, while you can remain at a relatively safe distance from your subject.

Review Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD SP (C APS-C)

In May 2012, the Tamron 24-70 mm f/2.8 DI VC USD was introduced as the world's first 24-70 mm with built-in image stabilization (VC; Vibration Compensation). A 24-70 mm f/2.8 with a 70-200 mm f/2.8 zoom lens is probably the most sought-after combination in the photo bags of professional reporting photographers. Both the high brightness and the built-in image stabilization come in handy for these photographers. Tamron's SP, 'Special Performance', series is intended for professional photographers, but I'm sure there are many passionate amateurs who also use these lenses. The appellation 'Di' means that this lens is suitable for (Digital) cameras with a full frame sensor. Currently, the Tamron 24-70 mm VC in terms of image stabilization ha competition from the Canon 24-70 mm f/4. Still, the combination of a constant f/2.8 aperture and the built-in image stabilization of this Tamron lens is unique. The list price of the Tamron 24-70 mm with image stabilization is also significantly lower than the 24-70 mm f/2.8 lenses without image stabilization of other brands.

Review Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di VC USD SP AF (N APS-C)

A few weeks ago, we reviewed the Tamron SP 70-300 mm on a camera with a full frame sensor (Nikon D800E). Although the lens performs well on a camera with a full frame sensor, it will probably be more often used on a camera with an APS-C sensor, such as the Nikon D3200 or the Nikon D5200. Not only because of the high price/quality ratio, but also because you reduce the view angle by using a camera with a smaller sensor, allowing you to bring your subjects 1.5x closer to you. This makes this an ideal lens for nature photography.
The Tamron SP 70-300 mm VC is equipped with Tamron's VC (Vibration Compensation), a 3-axial image stabilization system. It is reasonably compact and – compared to brighter telezooms – reasonably light. It's an ideal candidate for a test with the Nikon D7100.

Review Tamron 60mm f/2 Di II LD IF Macro 1:1 SP AF (C APS-C)

The subject of this lens test is a macro lens from 2009, that is probably more often used as a portrait lens. The Tamron 60 mm macro f/2 Di II is designed for use on a camera with an APS-C sensor and offers the same capabilities as the famous Tamron 90 mm macro f/2.8 on a camera with a full-size sensor. When this lens came on the market, it was the only macro-lens with such high brightness. I think that four years later, that is still the case. The high brightness and image angle, comparable with a 90 mm lens at full-size, make this lens ideal for playing with the background sharpness of portraits or for taking macro-shots in low light.

Review Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD SP (N FF)

In May 2012, the Tamron 24-70 mm f/2.8 DI VC USD was introduced as the world's first 24-77 mm with built-in image stabilization (VC; Vibration Compensation). A 24-70 mm f/2.8 with a 70-200 mm f/2.8 zoom lens is probably the most common combination in the equipment bags of professional photographers heading out to do a report. Both high brightness and built-in image stabilization come in handy for these photographers. Tamron's SP, "Special Performance," series is meant for professional photographers. The "Di" designation means that the lens is suitable for (Digital) cameras with a full-frame sensor. Meanwhile, the Tamron 24-70 mm VC has, with respect to image stabilization, competition from the Canon 24-70 mm IS f/4. Even so, the combination of a constant f/2.8 aperture and the built-in image stabilization from this Tamron lens remains unique. The list price of the Tamron 24-70 mm with image stabilization is considerably lower than that of 24-70 mm f/2.8 lenses without image stabilization of other brands. We've tested this lens using a Nikon D800E and a 50 megapixel Canon 5DsR.

Review Tamron 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD AF (C APS-C)

The Tamron 18-270 mm VC is a very compact zoom lens with a sensationally big 15x zoom range and built-in image stabilization. Compared to its predecessor, the Tamron 18-270 mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC LD Aspherical IF Macro AF from 2008 (model B003), the subject of the current test, the Tamron 18-270 mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD AF from 2011 (model B008), is half a centimeter shorter and 100 grams lighter. A filter diameter of 62 mm in place of 72 mm is a significant difference.
Apart from the Sigma 18-250 mm, there are few walk-around lenses with such a great zoom range that varies from wide angle to super telephoto. The Tamron 18-270 mm is a Di lens, which means that this lens is developed for use on a camera with an APS-C sensor. Upon registration of the lens with the importer, you get a five-year guarantee.

Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 XR Di LD Aspherical IF SP AF might be a name you will easily forget. But this compact, cheap and fast constant f/2.8 mid-range zoom lens deserves to be remembered. For it's image quality, for example. This lens was released back in 2007. We are reviewing it now as a prelude to our forthcoming Tamron 24-70mm 2.8 review. This lens is designed for full frame camera's and the field of view ranges from moderate wide angle to moderate telephoto. Tamron2875FF

Review Tamron SP AF 28-75 mm/2.8 XR Di (C APS-C)

In 2007, Tamron released the SP AF 28-75 mm 2.8 XR Di LD Aspherical (IF) Macro or Tamron 28-75 mm. The lens has a strikingly long type of name of which the most letter combinations speak for themselves. The lens is designed for full frame and the angle is from moderate wide angle to moderate telephoto. If you put this Tamron on a crop camera however, the angle is from nearly standard to telephoto. To be precise, at a Canon body of 45 to 120 mm focal distance equivalent. That seems to be awkward, but if you subsequently combine this with a wide angle zoom of about 12-24 mm, you have a wide range with only two lenses. Because of the range on the telephoto side, the Tamron 28-75 mm can be used well as portrait lens. APS-C Tamron 28-75 mm productfoto

Review Tamron 17-50 mm/2.8 DII VC SP XR LD (N APS-C)

In 2010, Tamron came out with the 17-50 mm 2.8 DII VC SP XR LD or Tamron 17-50 mm 2.8 VC. It remains available in addition to a version that is not equipped with built-in image stabilization. Image stabilization makes the contemporary version much more versatile. Nikon offers no 17-50 mm 2.8 with built in image stabilization, but Sigma does: the Sigma 17-50 mm 2.8 EX DC OS HSM. The garantee Tperiod of 5 years, given by the Dutsch importer of Tamron lenses, is unique.
