Tamron SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD

 

The Tamron SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD (Model A007) was announced in February 2012, just one day before the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM. Its headline feature is indicated by the 'VC' in its name, which stands for 'Vibration Control'; it's the first...

Extremely good optics ; Highly effective image stabilization ; Silent, accurate focusing ; Impressive flare resistance ; Very good build quality including sealing ; Competitive price compared to camera manufacturers' equivalents

Unpleasant vignetting at F2.8 on full frame at the telephoto end ; Slightly less-fast autofocus than Canon or Nikon equivalents (but far from slow) ; AF and VC switches rather stiff, difficult to change quickly

The Tamron SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD is the first fast standard zoom for full frame cameras to feature optical image stabilization. Its combination of impressive optics, effective autofocus and image stabilization systems, and drip-proof construction...

Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD Lens

 

The announcement of the Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD Lens raised more than a few eyebrows.For many years, photographers (including me) have been requesting a full frame compatible 24-70mm f/2.8 lens with optical image stabilization.Those wishes...

Tamron SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD: A Constant Aperture “Full Frame” Zoom

 

The difference between a “constant” aperture zoom and other standard zooms is that when you increase the focal length on the standard zoom the maximum aperture narrows. This might make the difference between being able to hand hold or not when zooming...

Tamron SP 24–70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD

 

High-Speed Standard Zoom Lens for Your Full-Frame DSLR The Tamron SP 24–70mm f/2.8 Di VC lens is a fast lens designed to work with full-frame cameras (but it will work with smaller sensors, too). It's available for Canon, Nikon, and Sony; however, the...

Image quality; VC; price

Very slight vignetting and barrel distortion

Scott Kelby borrowed the lens to test it on the sidelines of an NFL game and he was impressed with the results, as well. Check out his comments at http://kel.by/RDCAg2.

Lens Test: Tamron 24–70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD

 

On every serious shooter's list of “essential” glass, you will see the classic 24– 70mm f/2.8. Now, Tamron has gilded the lily with a heretofore absent feature: Vibration Compensation. Tamron pulled off this coup by using lighter and smaller glass...

Lens Review: Tamron SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD (Model A007)

 

A new, budget-friendly workhorse of a lens with image stabilization.

Solid but lightweight professional-grade build; Vibration Compensation helps for shooting at slower shutter speeds in low light; fast, virtually silent focusing; great resolving power and excellent image quality results

A step slower focusing in low light than Canon’s comparable lens; zoom ring is stiff and slow to turn; some fall-off in corner sharpness at 24mm

If you can get over whatever reservations you might have about third-party lenses, the Tamron SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD is definitely worth a look. It’s a well-crafted, professional-grade lens in a very popular zoom length/aperture that could very...

Tamron 24-135mm f/3.5-5.6 AD Aspherical (IF) SP AF Review Round-Up

 

The Tamron AF 24-135mm f/3.5-5.6 AD Aspherical (IF) SP is indeed a worthy competitor for the Canon EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 USM IS. The resolution and vignetting figures are slightly superior whereas it's a tie regarding distortions. The Tamron shows a...

Review Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD SP (C APS-C)

 

In May 2012, the Tamron 24-70 mm f/2.8 DI VC USD was introduced as the world's first 24-70 mm with built-in image stabilization (VC; Vibration Compensation). A 24-70 mm f/2.8 with a 70-200 mm f/2.8 zoom lens is probably the most sought-after...

Tamron SP 24-70MM F/2.8 Di VC USD Lens

 

A fast, sharp, image-stablized 24–70mm zoom lens is just what serious photographers have been crying out for but so far the major camera manufacturers have not answered their pleas. Canon users were expecting that the recently revised Canon 24–70mm...
