The new SP70-200mm F/2.8 G2 (Model A025) telephoto lens reimagines the highly acclaimed Model A009 with enhanced optical performance, improved VC (Vibration Compensation), faster AF speed and accuracy, and shortened MOD (Minimum Object Distance) for greater flexibility. What’s more, compatibility with Tamron tele converters provides additional focal length. In keeping with the SP series’ innovative technology, the lens is designed to be durable, flexible and resilient enough to rise to any occasion. Every aspect of the SP 70-200mm F/2.8 G2 (Model A025) zoom has been improved, providing high image quality and enhanced bokeh throughout. Optical design features include XLD (extra Low Dispersion) and LD (Low Dispersion) glass to eliminate chromatic aberrations across the entire zoom range, ensuring optimum resolution― even at the edges. eBAND Coating designed exclusively for this new zoom offers superior anti- reflection properties, greatly minimizing flare and ghosting. And refined bokeh provides spectacular background effects from nearly any angle. Tamron’s best-in-class VC* image stabilization performance is equivalent to 5 stops**, according to CIPA standards. Plus, this lens offers a choice of three VC modes, including one exclusively for panning. Now you can match the VC mode to your shooting conditions and enjoy sharp, jitter-free handheld shooting―even in low light. * Among 70-200mm F/2.8 interchangeable lenses for full-frame DSLR cameras.

It was raining today so I set up a tripod on the front porch and took a series of 200mm, f/2.8 shots of a neighbors car tag about 300 feet away. Cropped on Lightroom, the Tamron excelled by a slim difference center-frame, and the lenses were about equal at the edge of the frame. Again, there was slightly more contrast with the Nikon. I really expected the Nikon to substantially excel but that was not the case. For me at least, if I couple this quick resolution test with the VR capability of the Tamron, the Tamron becomes the clear winner of the two especially when I consider the $1299 price. Also, back inside the house, I was able to achieve pin-sharp, hand-held shots down to 1/6th of a second at 200mm. That level of hand-held, totally unsupported shooting was a shock to me and I let out a couple expletives when I took a peek at the shots achieved! This guy has never experienced such a high level of VR capability with any other lens of any type by any manufacturer.
I'm so pleased with the performance and profound quality feel of the Tamron; so much so that I'm beating myself up for the Nikon lens purchase. Even when the novelty of having this new lens begins to fade, I'll still be reaching for it anytime the focal lengths are called for. That understanding of myself tells me to go ahead and sell the Nikon - a shame because I worked hard to complete my Nikon "Trinity" with the addition of the Nikon 70-200mm not long ago. I just can't get the VR experience with the Tamron out of my head! My advice: Buy and enjoy something really special in a very reasonably priced lens.
03/20/2017: Be aware that I did not purchase this lens through Amazon although Amazon was the first place I checked availability. There is a REASON why this lens is sold out in Amazon and other high end camera retailers. Just order and be patient. I assure you it's worth the wait.
It's a beautiful lens. feels well made. The footplate/tripod ring (?) seems very stable, but easy to remove, put back on. I can hand-hold it, but does get heavy after awhile, so I plan to use with a monopod when doing prolonged shooting (e.g. soccer game).
I was looking for lens to capture sporting events: yeah, it's a tad short for field work: Soccer, football, baseball- but i hope to use w/ DX (crop-sized sensor) camera --D7200-- to extend focal length, so to speak. Also, plan to use with a teleconverter (TC); FYI, the "Tamron SP" 1.4 X TC I already own doesn't work with this lens, so, I will save my lunch money and hopefully buy the newer 1.4X XT model TC in the near future.
Also, I use a different quick - release system, so I had to buy an inexpensive "arca- style" baseplate to attach to a ballhead for monopod use. FYI the "Andoer adapter plate" ($12 here on Amazon) works great. link: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B00RK2DSIM/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
I hope to add photos; I work off different computers & the photos are elsewhere. Let me at least talk about the process: I photo events, sports, wildlife, especially hummingbirds- so I need quick AF. THIS IT DOES! as quick as my Nikkor 300m F/4; quicker than the 70-300 f/4.5-5.6 zoom. The focus seems to be spot on. especially using the D750 (FX). I'm wondering if there is a slight focus, softening with the D7200 (DX); will need to set up AF test & double check. I also appreciate that I can focus close by, under 3 ft. That was important for me.
I'm sure I'm forgetting to mention something, so if any questions, I can try to reply. now go find photos... FYI: "concert" photos with FX D750; bird, outdoor/pond photos with DX D7200 lens.
