| p.1 #7 · Anyone bought or used the new Tamron 70-200 2.8 VC? |
I was looking around my local photo shop (Bob's Camera) and I looked behind the counter and saw that they had two 70-200 VC's in stock. The guy working was one that I have dealt with on a regular basis, and was more than happy to let me play with it (on a D7100).
This lens focuses fast! I played with it, focusing back and forth from frame filling close to far away, and the speed was insane.
I also tested the VC and I am very impressed! On the 17-50 VC I tested a long time ago, it had a noticeable "jump" as the VC activated, which could result in blurry photos.
The 70-200 VC activates very quietly, and I couldn't see any "jump" through the viewfinder. I shot it at around 1/160 at 200mm and it came out SHARP!
With Tamron and Sigma really stepping up their game, Canikon really needs to get their shit together.
My 70-200 purchase will most likely not be from Nikon.
