    Overview

    The 70-180mm F/2.8 Di III VC VXD G2 (Model A065) is the “G2” 2nd-generation successor to the 70-180mm F/2.8 Di III VXD (Model A056), a lens that won astounding acclaim from the marketplace and has been enjoyed by users around the world. The new model has been updated with TAMRON’s proprietary VC (Vibration Compensation) and the optical design has been completely reworked from the ground up to attain uncompromising optical performance throughout the entire zoom range. In addition, the VXD (Voice-coil eXtreme-torque Drive) AF system faithfully fulfils the intentions of the photographer to a high degree of precision in steps of 0.005mm, less than one-tenth the width of a human hair to further enhance the tracking performance of moving objects such as vehicles and sports action, ensuring you never miss decisive scenes whether shooting still images or video. Also, the quietness offered by the linear motor system provides nearly silent performance when using the lens in conditions where noise needs to be minimized. 

    Leading the list of improvements of the new G2 lens is the incorporation of TAMRON’s proprietary VC (Vibration Compensation) mechanism. The lens maintains the maneuverability of class-leading compact size and weight while enabling shooting with greater stability. The optical design has been revamped to achieve uncompromising high image quality across the entire zoom range. The MOD is shortened at the wide end to 0.3m (11.8in) compared to the first generation 0.85m (33.5in), so that users can enjoy the unique photographic expressions distinctive to the lens. Additionally, the new 70-180mm zoom features the VXD (Voice-coil eXtreme-torque Drive) linear motor focus mechanism for high-speed, high-precision auto-focusing that performs well for both stills and video. The new lens supports the dedicated TAMRON Lens Utility™ and TAMRON Lens Utility Mobile™ apps that allow you to customize functions based on various shooting styles for still photography and...
