It has to do with the size of the sensor. The D7000 which is a DX body has a smaller sensor than a full frame camera such as the D600/D700/D800. If a 35mm lens is used on the D7000 it will have an apparent field of view of 50mm. If the same lens is used on a D800, for example, it's field of view will be 35mm. When you are considering lens to buy the field of view assumes it will be used on an FX body. If you are going to use it on a d7000 you should multiply by a factor of 1.5. So the tamron 70-200 is really like a 105-300 on the d7000
