A wide-aperture telephoto lens packed into a body that's smallest*1 in its class, with further advances in image quality and performance
This is a wide-aperture telephoto zoom lens compatible with full-size SLR cameras, equipped with Tamron's proprietary Vibration Compensation (VC) image stabilization*2 and Ultrasonic Silent Drive (USD) motor that ensures a speedy, silent autofocus. Using the Extra Low Dispersion (XLD) glass and Low Dispersion (LD) elements, this lens offers a new level of correction for chromatic aberrations, while the new advanced optical design delivers higher performance with excellent contrast and resolution. Packed in a compact body that's smallest in its class, this lens boasts high image quality and F/ 2.8 brightness across the zoom range. In addition, use of a rounded diaphragm*3 has enabled this lens to achieve spectacular blur effects. For landscapes, sports, fashion, or journalism, the 70-200mm will expand the possibilities of photographic expression.

- *2 The Sony mount does not include the VC image stabilization functionality, as Sony digital SLR camera bodies include image stabilization functionality. Consequently, the name of the Sony mount lens, SP 70-200mm F/2.8 Di USD, does not include the VC description.
- *3 This rounded diaphragm retains a nearly circular shape even when taken two stops down from its fully open state.
