Tamron SP AF70-200mm F/2.8 Di LD [IF] MACRO

Lightweight, High-Performance and Fast Tele Zoom Lens Designed for Full-size SLR Cameras and Featuring Best In Class Minimum Focus Distance for Pentax and Sony

As previously announced, Tamron Co., Ltd (Mr. Morio Ono, President) has developed SP AF70-200mm F/2.8 Di LD [IF] MACRO (Model A001), a lightweight and fast F/2.8 tele-zoom lens designed for full-size SLR cameras. Tamron is pleased to announce the availability of the zoom lens in mounts for Pentax and Sony SLR cameras.

The SP AF70-200mm F/2.8 Di LD [IF] MACRO (Model A001) was developed under the same concept as the SP AF28-75mm F/2.8 XR Di (Model A09)-a lens highly evaluated by many users around the world as a compact and fast zoom lens boasting a high cost/performance ratio. The SP AF70-200mm is a fast F/2.8 zoom lens that is compatible with full-size DSLRs and 35mm Film SLR cameras.
While preventing the lens from becoming bulky, Tamron successfully realized the minimum focus distance of 0.95m over the entire zoom range for a maximum magnification ratio of 1:3.1 at 200mm-best in its class on both counts. Combined with the advantage of an internal focusing system, this lens enables the user to enjoy stress-free close-up photography.

The SP AF70-200mm F/2.8 zoom lens covers a focal length range from 70mm medium telephoto to 200mm real telephoto when mounted on a full frame DSLR or 35mm film SLR camera while covering a 35mm-equivalent focal length range from 109mm to 310mm ultra telephoto* (diagonal angle of view of 7‹59') when used with a digital SLR camera equipped with an APS-C sized image sensor.
  * 35mm format equivalent (Tamron's conversion value is 1.55x)
