This segment of lenses is an important step-up for photographers who want more speed than 55-200mm or 55-250mm kit telezooms, which often only offer F5. 6 or F6. 3 at the telephoto end, but without going all-in with the heft and expense of constant F2. 8 variants. Unique to The Tamron is an extra 10mm of reach on the long end than its competitors (which makes for a nice, neat 3x zoom factor), but the difference between 210 and 200mm is negligible in real-world shooting.
But before we take a look at how the Tamron performs optically, let's see how it's built and how it handles.
