Further, it provides improved control over the depth of field that facilitates subject isolation and enables working with selective focus techniques.

Our Take on the Tamron SP 70-200mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2 Lens for Canon EF:
The ring-type Ultrasonic Silent Drive (USD) autofocus motor outputs quick and quiet autofocus. The USD even allows full-time manual focus override. Further, the lens comes with a removable rotating tripod collar with an Arca-type compatible foot, making working with a tripod or monopod extremely convenient. Additionally, the TAP-in Console compatibility allows fine-tuning and intuitive focusing adjustments. It can even be used for firmware updates.
The eBAND and BBAR Coating suppresses flare and ghosting and renders higher contrast and color fidelity in strong lighting conditions and harsh climates. Further, the design comes with one XLD and five low dispersion elements that reduce chromatic and spherical aberrations and limit distortion. Additionally, the VC image stabilization minimizes camera shake up to 5 stops for crisp handheld shooting. There are three VC modes to select from as per stability requirements. Mode 1 provides a balanced setting generally used; Mode 2 is ideal for panning movements; Mode 3 stabilizes only capture and not the viewfinder image.
The lens is appropriate for full-frame Canon EF-mount cameras; however, it is compatible with APS-C models also. The lens provides 112-320 mm equivalent focal length in APS-C models. Additionally, the lens has an ergonomic and sturdy metal construction with a textured grip for improved handling. Further, the construction is also dust and moisture-sealed and can withstand inclement environmental conditions, and protected against dirt and smearing.
