How compact is Tamron 70-180 f2.8 FE compared to Sony 70-200 f2.8 and F4 Lenses
Tamron 70-180mm F2.8 Di III VXD is a fast telephoto zoom lens for Sony's FE mount and a good alternative to existing Sony 70-200mm lenses: Sony FE 70-200mm F2.8 GM, Sony FE 70-200mm F2.8 GM Mark II and Sony FE 70-200mm F4 G.
Obviously Tamron at 180mm can't match the max tele reach of 200mm of the other lenses but while you are losing 20mm reach, you gain a lot on compactness. As can be seen in the real life size comparison image below, Tamron 70-180mm is 51mm shorter than the Sony 70-200 f2.8 lenses, and 26mm shorter than the Sony 70-200mm f4 lens. It is also the lightest of the bunch at 805g.
