The Tamron SP 70-200mm f/2.8 Di VC USD Telephoto Zoom Lens for Canon Cameras features a f/2.8 aperture, Vibration Compensation image stabilization and Ultrasonic Silent Drive that achieves leading-edge image quality while boasting the most compact design in its class.VC (Vibration Compensation)VC is Tamrons proprietary image stabilization system. Tamrons VC is a three-coil system, whereby three driving coils activate the shake-compensating VC lens group electromagnetically via three ceramic balls. The VC lens elements are held in place only by contact with the ceramic balls, achieving smooth movement with little friction. This provides a stable viewfinder image with excellent tracking performance. And as the VC lens may be moved in parallel using only the motorized control, the mechanical structure has been simplified, enabling the creation of a more compact lens.New VC System (Moving Coil Method)Tamrons original VC image stabilization mechanism utilized a moving magnet system whereby a heavy magnet was positioned near the moving VC lens element. In the new VC unit the positions of the magnet and the coil are reversed, because of this the VC optical lens element is attached to the coil. The new VC mechanism employs a moving coil mechanism with a lightweight coil, and the lighter coil reduces the load on the drive system. Thus, the lighter, more compact new VC unit contributes to the lenss overall light weight and compact size.The Ultrasonic MotorIn the ultrasonic motor, a piezoelectric element arranged in a ring formation generates ultrasonic vibrations in a metallic ring stator, and the vibration energy is used to rotate a metallic ring rotor that is attached to the stator. The rotation energy is in turn transferred from the metallic ring rotor to operate the focus lens.

5 out of 5 eggsA Very Solid Competitor to Canon L

Pros: Razor Sharp, Superb Color, Has VC, Affordable, and a 6yr Warranty too!

Cons: Not a single one.

Other Thoughts: I bought this lens to replace the 70-200mm f/4l Canon I had. I am kicking myself for NOT doing it sooner!! Honestly, I should have just saved and bought this first. It is a solid solid lens no joke. The color is amazing, it's razor sharp, killer in low light, and just does what it's supposed to. Some complain of it being slower in the AF department, but honestly, you are saving $1000 over the Canon model and most buying these aren't shooting as a pro. If you absolutely have to have the lambo fast focus, drop a grand more and enjoy...But in all reality, this is a killer lens. Checkout dxomark and see the direct comparison results against the competition on your actual body. You will see it is so close it's not even funny.

Another added perk, or perks rather, are the fact it is a sealed lens, which I shoot softball games for my daughter, so it's safe around the dust more so than the other lower priced alternative to Canon, which isn't sealed. It also carries the best warranty out there at 6 years standard. That's solid. You won't be disappointed at all in this lens...I use it on my Canon t5i and in raw, I can knock out the 5 frames/sec the camera boasts, and it is on point.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Lens!

Pros: Great sharpness across the board. GREAT low light lens with a good bit of reach. use it on my 6D with amazing results and on my 70D when I want a bit more reach from the crop sensor. I love this lense and only wish I used it more.

Almost 1000 cheaper than Canons 70-200 f/2.8 L II and nearly as good.

Cons: Non come to mind

Other Thoughts: Save your money over the L glass and get this with great results. have enough left over to buy another great lens.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Surprised. Very Pleased

Pros: Razor Sharp w/ no back or front focusing issues.
Fast Focus
TriPod Collar Mount can be removed without removing the lens.
2.8 throughout the focal range
Vignetting is minimal
VC (or IS) works very well.
Weather sealed.

Cons: CA is a bit more noticeable than I would like.
Reach is about 185 not 200.
As with other Tamron lenses, the color reproduction is a bit on a the cool side, but only enough for a pro to notice.

Other Thoughts: Obviously for Canon bodies the only two viable options in this focal length is the Tamron 70-200 and the much revered Canon 70-200 L. Is the Canon version better? Yes. Is it a $1000 better? No. Do yourself a favor and save a $1000 and try this lens first. You'll be pleasantly surprised. I do like the color reproduction better on the Canon glass, but that's part of what your paying for with L glass. However this lens does not disappoint. It would be nice if Tamron made the barrel white like the Canon version, but I suppose it would only be an issue if you are shooting in the sun for extended periods. When I can afford it I will upgrade to the Canon lens, however I'm certainly not unhappy with this lens and it has quickly become one of my favorites.
