The new SP70-200mm F/2.8 G2 (Model A025) tele-zoom lens represents a full evolution of the highly acclaimed 70-200mm Model A009 with enhanced optical performance, improved VC (Vibration Compensation), faster AF speed and accuracy, plus a shortened MOD (Minimum Object Distance) of 95cm, for greater flexibility. What’s more, compatibility with Tamron teleconverters and the new Tap-in Console provides additional benefits.

In keeping with the SP series’ innovative technology, the lens is designed to be durable, flexible and resilient enough to rise to any occasion.

Every aspect of the SP 70-200mm F/2.8 G2 (Model A025) zoom has been improved, providing enhanced image quality and improved bokeh for spectacular background effects. Optical design features include XLD (eXtra Low Dispersion) and LD (Low Dispersion) glass to eliminate chromatic aberrations across the entire zoom range, ensuring optimum resolution - even at the edges. eBAND Coating designed exclusively for this new zoom offers superior anti- reflection properties, greatly minimising flare and ghosting

The USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive) ring-type motor, along with two high-performance microcomputers, ensures excellent focusing speed and accuracy. The Full-time Manual Focus override allows you to make fine adjustments while using AF, without having to switch from AF to MF mode.

Tamron’s best-in-class VC image stabilization performance is equivalent to 5 stops (CIPA standards). This lens offers a choice of three VC modes, including one exclusively for panning. Now you can match the VC mode to your shooting conditions and enjoy sharp, judder-free handheld shooting, even in low light.

The surface of the front lens element is coated with a protective fluorine compound that is water and oil-repellent. The lens surface is easier to wipe clean and is less vulnerable to the damaging effects of dirt, dust, moisture and fingerprints.

Ideal for use in outdoor photography, SP 70-200mm G2 offers Moisture-Proof and Dust-Resistant Construction, thanks to special moisture-proof and dust-resistant sealants used at every joint and seam. The sealant material helps to prevent the intrusion of any dirt, dust or water droplets compared to conventional moisture-resistant construction.

An electromagnetic diaphragm system, which has been a standard feature for Canon-mount lenses, has been employed in Nikon-mount lenses. More precise diaphragm and aperture control is possible because the diaphragm blades are driven and controlled by a motor through electronic pulse signals.

A new textured grip and Arca-Swiss style tripod interface enhance both speed and utility. Because the tripod mount is made of lightweight magnesium, it is much easier to carry.

Understanding: Aperture

Aperture is the opening in a camera lens that controls how much light enters the camera. It's measured in f-stops like f/2.8 or f/8. Lower f-stop numbers mean wider openings, letting in more light and creating a shallow depth of field (blurry background). Higher f-stop numbers mean smaller openings, letting in less light and creating a larger depth of field (more of the scene in focus). Aperture also affects the quality of out-of-focus areas in the image (bokeh).

Understanding: Lens Types

Different lenses have different purposes to achieve different styles of images, some popular ones include:
Prime Lens: Fixed focal length, sharp images, great for portraits and dark settings.
Zoom Lens: Variable focal length, versatile for different shots and everyday use..
Wide-Angle Lens: Captures wide scenes like landscapes.
Telephoto Lens: Magnifies distant subjects, ideal for sports & wildlife.
Macro Lens: Perfect for close-up photography of small subjects.
Fisheye Lens: Ultra-wide perspective, creates unique images.

Understanding: Lens Mounts

Different camera brands use different lens mounts, which are like connectors that attach lenses to camera bodies. Each mount is specific to a particular brand and camera series. For example, Canon uses the EF and RF mounts, Nikon uses the F mount, Sony uses the E mount for its mirrorless cameras. These mounts dictate which lenses are compatible with which cameras. Some brands offer adapters to use lenses from other systems, but it's essential to ensure compatibility for proper functionality and autofocus performance.

Understanding: Manual and Autofocus

Manual focus and autofocus are two ways to adjust the sharpness of a camera lens. With manual focus, you turn a ring on the lens to bring the subject into focus yourself, giving you full control over what appears sharp in the image. Autofocus, on the other hand, relies on the camera's built-in technology to automatically adjust the focus for you, usually by detecting contrast or phase differences in the scene. Autofocus can be convenient, especially for fast-moving subjects or when you need to capture a quick shot, whereas manual focus allows for precise adjustments and creative control over the final image.
