World’s smallest and lightest1 with fast F2.8 aperture and amazing
The 70-180mm F/2.8 Di III VC VXD G2 (Model A065) is the “G2” 2nd-generation
successor to the Model A056 that won astounding acclaim and has been enjoyed
worldwide. The new model keeps its fast F2.8 aperture and maintains 180mm at the telephoto end while achieving the world’s smallest size and lightest weight for its class. Maintaining the highest level of mobility, the optical design has been completely revamped. The precision combination of special glass including an XLD2 and LD3 lens elements attains uncompromising optical performance throughout the entire zoom range. With the 70-180mm F2.8 G2, TAMRON has pushed rendering capabilities and miniaturization to the limits—advancements that amplify the joy of capturing the world around you.
Fast and precise AF and improved tracking performance plus VC mechanism
The AF drive continues to employ the VXD4 linear motor focus mechanism, combining class-leading speed and precision, and enabling fast and accurate focusing. The precise calculations, reworked to update the 50-400mm F4.5-6.3 (Model A067) and 150-500mm F5-6.7 (Model A057), have been applied to enhance tracking moving subjects, ensuring you never miss decisive scenes whether shooting still images or video. Moreover, the 70-180mm F2.8 G2 is equipped with TAMRON’s VC5 mechanism.
This suppresses camera shake that tends to occur when shooting at the telephoto
end, during close focusing, or when shooting in low-light conditions, enabling sharper results.
Shooting at close distances that were possible only during manual focusing with the 1st-generation model is now possible when using autofocus with the 70-180mm F2.8 G2. TAMRON has succeeded in shortening the MOD to 0.3m (11.8in) at 70mm. At 70mm, the working distance is 12cm (4.7in) and the maximum magnification ratio is 1:2.6. This expands the possibilities for expression with a single lens.
