Tamron 70-200 G2 Lens Review

All images shot with the Tamron 70-200 F/2.8 VC G2 on the Nikon D750. 

Recently I went for a drive down the coast of California near Santa Barbara on the 101 with my friend Tess. We went for a red and black themed outfit that would contrast nicely with the orange glow of the sun behind her and some of natures beautiful colors. This shoot was a great test of Tamron’s best full frame telephoto lens which I shot handheld (without a vertical grip) with one hand on the camera body and my left-hand shading the lens for naturally increased contrast in-camera. On Vibration Control mode 3 (VC 3) the lens blew me away and allowed me to consistently get super sharp images at F/2.8. There were very few raw files that I deleted for lack of sharpness. The Autofocus speed was very fast, incredibly accurate and easy to handle with one hand thanks to the stabilization. All of the images utilized natural lighting, no reflectors or strobes on this shoot at all. The images were processed in Lightroom Classic CC and exported at 2448px at the long edge before being uploaded here. If you have any questions feel free to email me!
