Tamron SP AF70-200mm F/2.8 Di LD [IF] Macro

Just a few weeks ago, Tamron announced the Tamron SP AF70-200mm F/2.8 Di LD [IF] Macro, a new lens that promises to combine compactness and speed. Compared to other f/2.8 telephoto zooms from other manufacturers, this lens is expected to be much smaller and lighter while retaining the advantages of a f/2.8 zoom. Most of the technology that goes into this is based on the hugely successful Tamron SP AF28-75mm F/2.8 XR Di.

The main features of this lens are listed as:

  1. 0.95m (37.4) MFD over the Entire Zoom Range for 1:3.1 Maximum Magnification Ratio
  2. Soft Out-of-Focus Effect and Sharp Depiction
  3. Lightweight, Yet Fast F/2.8 Maximum Aperture
  4. Internal Surface Coatings Minimize Ghosting and Flare
  5. One-touch AF/MF Switchover mechanisms (for Canon and Nikon only)
  6. Detachable Tripod Grip Ring
  7. Flower-shaped Lens Hood
