Fast Sports Zooms Review

Pentax, Sigma and Tamron Comparison

By PF Staff in Review Announcements on Apr 17, 2012

For sports photography you would often go for a zoom lens so as to be able to follow the action all over the field from one vantage point. And a fast lens like F2.8 is desirable for two reasons:

  1. Isolate the subject using the narrow depth of field of F2.8
  2. F2.8 allows for a faster shutter speed which is important especially when shooting indoors

Last year, we reviewed three 70(80) - 200mm F2.8 lenses with sports photography in mind, one legacy lens (SMC Pentax-FA* 80-200mm F2.8 ED [IF]) and two lenses that are currently in production (Sigma 70-200mm F2.8 APO EX DG OS HSM and Tamron 70-200mm F2.8 Di LD (IF) Macro).  Today, that review has been re-vamped with formatting an content improvements.  This is one of our post popular reviews, and we hope you'll enjoy!
