Tamron 70-180mm f2.8 vs Sony 70-200 f2.8 : Is the Tamron REALLY That Good?

Updated: Aug 19, 2021

If you haven’t heard, everyone should have a 70-200 in their lineup of lenses. It’s just a magical range and the photos that you can get from those glasses are just spectacular.

For Sony, the benchmark has always been their G Master, but now we have Tamron in the mix, with their all new 70-180mm at the same F2.8 True, it lacks OSS, but 20mm at the long end…

BUT It’s much lighter, much more affordable, and in our testing? Perhaps just as superb an image quality, especially when paired with the Sony A9II. Take a look for yourself.
