A few days ago, we shared that Tamron is about to release a 70-180 f/2.8 Sony lens. I received a pre-production sample of the Tamron 70-180 a few days ago, and here are some real-world sample photos that are taken with this lens. All photos are shot with the Sony a7riii.

Even though this is a pre-production unit I am very impressed by its performance. The 70-180 is light, sharp and colors are nice. It’s actually trending as a top seller right now at B&H, and I can see why.

    Gotta say, 70-180 at 2.8 is quite impressive

    I’m most impressed that you were able to shoot that first shot at f2.0! Impressive for any 2.8 lens!
