The 70-180mm F/2.8 Di III VC VXD G2 (model A065) is the second generation "G2" successor to the highly acclaimed A056. The new model retains its fast F2.8 aperture and 180mm telephoto, while achieving the world's smallest size and lightest weight in its class. The optical design has been completely reworked to maintain the highest level of mobility. The precision combination of special glass, including XLD and LD lens elements, delivers uncompromising optical performance throughout the zoom range. With the 70-180mm F2.8 G2, TAMRON has pushed rendering performance and miniaturization to the limit - advances that enhance the pleasure of capturing the world around you.

Fast and precise AF and improved tracking performance plus VC mechanism

The AF drive continues to use the VXD4 linear motor focusing mechanism, which combines class-leading speed and precision for fast and accurate focusing. The precise calculations used to update the 50-400mm F4.5-6.3 (A067) and 150-500mm F5-6.7 (A057) have been reworked to improve tracking of moving subjects, ensuring you never miss the action, whether shooting stills or video. In addition, the 70-180mm F2.8 G2 is equipped with TAMRON's VC5 mechanism. This suppresses camera shake, which tends to occur when shooting at the telephoto end, during close focusing or in low-light conditions, for sharper results.

MOD of 0.3m opens up new possibilities

Shooting at close distances, which was only possible with manual focusing with the 1st generation model, is now possible with autofocus with the 70-180mm F2.8 G2. TAMRON has succeeded in reducing the MOD to 0.3m at 70mm. At 70mm, the working distance is 12cm and the maximum magnification ratio is 1:2.6. This expands the possibilities for expression with a single lens.

Moisture Resistant (MR) Construction

The lens is splash-resistant. All critical areas have special seals. Lenses with this feature are ideal for outdoor use in bad weather.

Internal Focusing (IF) System

Internal Focus – Internal focusing prevents the barrel from extending and rotating during focusing. The lens is easier to handle and is suitable for use with polarising or gradation filters.

FLR Fluorine Coating

Fluorine Coating protects the front lens from contamination. It prevents oil and water droplets from sticking to the surface. Fingerprints and dirt are easier to remove.

Low Dispersion (LD) Glass

LD elements have particularly low colour dispersion index. They reduce chromatic aberrations that appear as colour fringes on the contrast edges and reduce image sharpness.

Zoom Lock (ZL) Mechanism

The ZL mechanism prevents unwanted extension of the tube during transport. The lock, which is activated by a switch, protects the lens from damage and at the same time guarantees that it is quickly ready for use.

Extra Low Dispersion (XLD) Glass

XLD elements have particularly low colour dispersion index. They reduce chromatic aberrations that appear as colour fringes on the contrast edges and reduce image sharpness.

VXD Autofocus

Voice-Coil Extreme-Torque Drive – The VXD autofocus guarantees fast and precise focusing on both near and far objects. The quiet focus motor responds at lightning speed and is particularly suitable for images of moving objects.

Vibration Compensation (VC)

Tamron-developed image stabilisation that compensates for unwanted camera movement for sharper images. Shutter speeds of up to 5 EV stops slower are possible with the VC image stabiliser.

Broad Band Anti-Reflection (BBAR) G2

The BBAR multi-coating ensures brilliant images with natural colours. It reduces the reflection of light rays hitting the lens surface. The more advanced BBAR G2 coating has been used since 2019.

TAMRON Lens Utility

The new TAMRON Lens Utility software was developed by us to configure our own TAMRON lenses. After installing the program on a computer, compatible lenses can be connected to the computer via a connecting cable to customize various lens functions or to update the lens firmware.
