A Review of the Tamron 70-180mm f/2.8 Di III VC VXD G2 Lens

Tamron is one of the most popular and respected companies in the market, notable for creating a variety of lenses that use pragmatic design principles to offer a lot of the same capabilities and performance of first-party options at far more competitive prices. One such lens is the 70-180mm f/2.8 Di III VC VXD G2, and this great video review takes a look at the performance and image quality you can expect from it in usage. 

Coming to you from Julia Trotti, this excellent video review takes a look at the Tamron 70-180mm f/2.8 Di III VC VXD G2 lens for Sony E mount cameras. Alongside the 28-75mm f/2.8 and 17-28mm f/2.8, the 70-180mm f/2.8 rounds out the company's holy trinity of f/2.8 zooms, offering photographers a classic trio that can competently handle a huge range of applications at a sum price that barely approaches that of one first-party lens. And considering the performance they turn in, it is well worth considering if you need those first-party options or if you would be better served by going with the Tamron lenses and saving that sizable chunk of change for something else, as they should be more than sufficient for most needs. Check out the video above for Trotti's full thoughts on the 70-180mm f/2.8 Di III VC VXD G2.0mm f/2.8.
