Shooting in the highly competitive arena of celebrity portraiture, image quality is my main objective. The Tamron SP 70-200 f/2.8 VC, allows me to produce not only extremely sharp images, but also images with clarity.

I was completely blown away when I shot a collection of press images for Singer/Song Writer, Ray J. The focus was very quick, even in low-light situations.

The lens soared on a photo shoot I recently did of native adolescents, pushing the Vibration Compensation to its limits. I was able to produce extremely sharp images shooting hand-held at 1/20th of a second at F4.

This lens performed not only at slow shutter speeds, but also at shallow aperture. Most lenses are not up to such a demand. If I were given just one lens to complete my tasks and perform, this is it.
