70-180mm f/2.8 Di III VXD (A056)

Tamron has announced that the Technical Image Press Association (TIPA) has given the Tamron 17-70mm F/2.8 Di III-A VC RXD with the 'BEST STANDARD ZOOM LENS' award and the Tamron 70-180mm F/2.8 Di III VXD has been awarded the 'BEST TELEPHOTO ZOOM LENS' accolade. 

The TIPA Awards are world-renowned as the most influential photo and imaging product awards in the industry. The Technical Image Press Association (TIPA) has a worldwide membership of photo and imaging magazines from 14 countries across five continents and once a year, the editors of TIPA’s member magazines meet to vote for the best photo and imaging products in each category.

This is the eighth consecutive year Tamron has been praised by the TIPA judges, with the following lenses receiving awards since 2014:

Here's what the TIPA judges said about the Tamron 17-70mm F/2.8 Di III-A VC RXD and Tamron 70-180mm F/2.8 Di III VXD:



"A midrange zoom is an excellent choice for family, outdoor, and travel photography. When it’s fast (here f/2.8 throughout the focal length range), lightweight (525 g) and compact 119.3mm; it can quickly become a regular photo companion. The Tamron 17-70mm is built for Sony E mount, APS-C cameras, thus the effective focal length is about 25.5-105 mm; it can be mounted on a full-frame Sony camera using the camera's APS-C crop mode. It incorporates Tamron’s Vibration Compensation system and can focus as close as 19 cm at the wide setting and 39 cm at the telephoto. The constant f/2.8 aperture means low-light shooting is enhanced with potential for excellent soft background effects as well."


BEST TELE PHOTO LENS LENS - Tamron 70-180mm F/2.8 Di III VXD

"This fast, versatile zoom can serve equally well as a landscape, wedding candid, portrait or travel lens. Versatility extends to its full compatibility with various camera features, including Fast Hybrid and Eye AF, a close focusing distance 0.85 m and Tamron’s VXD, a quick and quiet linear motor that is ideal for video and still photography alike. Portability is another attractive feature, one that encourages always packing this lens. Compact and lightweight, it’s a mere 15 cm at the 70 mm and weighs a mere 0.8 kg, plus special weather-sealing and lens coating allows for secure use even in inclement weather. And having a constant aperture throughout the focal length range means full advantage can be taken of bokeh effects for portraits and nature photography alike."
