    Re: Tamron full frame lense on Nikon AP-C ?

    Sorry, I didnt mean to spread bad info. I was thinking of the Tony video when I stated this, but have also heard many youtubers mention it, just not in depth like Tony did. He even showed the results using full frame, crop and four thirds. I guess a better analogy would be if you were to shine a flashlight through a pinhole with a poster behind it and then swap the poster for a flash card, would the flash card receive less lumens? I guess it would come down to what material (pixels) the post card and poster are made from. If the pixels are the exact same and theres just more of them in the full frame and less in the crop, yes it would be the same. I haven't done the test myself, just relying on what I have come across while wondering the same thing. Either way, if you can snag a 70-200 for $325, what are you waiting for!? Its a great lens that I have been trying to find a good deal on. The only thing to consider is that so far Tamron has not come out with an update for that lens to be compatible with the Z series. If you plan on upgrading to mirrorless any time soon, its the G2 you gotta find.

    Yes - I use my Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 on my D7200 (and previously on my D7100). The widest aperture stays the same no matter whether it's an FX body or a DX. As Mike mentioned, some of the newer bodies have issues with older lenses. If that lens doesn't connect to a Tamron dock to receive the latest updates, then you'd have to send it to Tamron to get the update. That can get costly since you'd have to pay shipping either one way or both ways.

    $325 for the VC Tamron is a great deal.

    I've enjoyed my Tamron. It's the SP24-70 2.8 and never leaves my D7000.

    IF it is in really good condition,grab it. Excellent price and very good lens. Yes, aperture is 2.8. What Tony might have been trying to convey(or was just plain uninformed...remember, his job is media personality, not photographer, he gets millions every year due to having over a million subscribers and not because he is an expert in anything in photography. I stopped viewing his channel after just too many bad statements intended to push particular brands he gets kickbacks from. there are very few working pros on youtube.) was total light falling on the sensor, which would me more on Fx but the image image circle is the same, Fx/DX but the DX sensor only gathers the light from a DX image circle. In any case, a F stop 2.8 with a T-stop of 2.8 will be a lot brighter in the VF and on the sensor so the ISO can be lower than any of the slower variable largest aperture DX lenses. That lens, for field sports would work BETTER on DX because of the narrower field of view equal to a 300mm lens on a Fx body. That is why the D500 DX is such a popular sports and wildlife camera compared to D850.
    Get it. If you don't someone will grab it. That model, A009 has a very good image stabilizer system that allows shooting hand held to pretty low shutter speeds. But you will still need high shutter speed for action sports. If the shot is not at full action speed, such as at the end of a play or detail of a huddle, lower the shutter speed for clean noise free crystal clean images at 1/160-1/200. It is best to use the center focus point, it is more sensitive in that camera and is the sharpest part of the image circle projected onto the sensor. In any low light situation, use the center focus point. Since the max aperture is wider than what you are probably using, it will allow the AF system to work better because it has more light to worth with. In every possible way, a 70-200 2.8 wide open the camera itself will work better than a kit 5.6 zoom, regardless of light. The lens is about 3 pounds so consider a sling strap so it caries the weight effortlessly when not up to your eye. 3 lbs is not heavy but after long event, your hand holding will be lot steadier throughout if not supporting all game with one hand.
    Oh, yes, grab it....

    The whole Aperture multiply argument is about bokeh, nothing more...
