Tamron SP AF 28-75mm f/2.8 XR Di LD ASPH (quite a name huh?) is full of surprises. The lens shows very solid performance throughout the zoom range along with low to moderate level of artifacts such as vignetting and CA.

Th e Tamron SP AF 28-75 F/2.8 XR Di LD Aspherical (IF) Macro is a high-end consumer zoom lens with a lot to recommend it. The zoom range is an ideal replacement for the so-called "normal" 50mm lens, giving considerable versatility.

Gary Wolstenholme test the small and light Tamron 28-75 f/2.8 lens. With downsizing technology and internal focusing, this could be a sheep in wolf's clothing. Tamron's 28-75mm costs around £357 and has a bright f/2.8 maximum aperture throughout the zoom range.

Lens shown in Nikon mount The Tamron SP AF28-75/2.8 XR Di LD Aspherical (IF) Macro is a fast, general purpose lens for both digital and film cameras. On a film camera the 28-70mm range covers a lot of applications from landscapes and photojournalism to travel and environmental portraits.

To begin I will give a list of all the Tamron abbreviations for better understanding: AF : Autofocus AD : Anomalous Dispersion. Special optical glass design that reduces chromatic aberration by reducing the amount of “undesirable” light wavelength passage through the lens.

Wow this lens amazes me. It's really a lot better then Sony 28-75 / 2,8 You can't compare it with Nikon 24-70/2,8 but for that price it's a nice lens!!!

    Price is the Pro. This lens does a great job. You cant go wrong buying this len and adding to your collection. The 24-75 is great for wide and close up shoots,, like Parties and Weddings. the 2.8f stop allows you to tailor your cameras ISO to allow a blur free shoot in low lite.

    Wished it shot wider than 24mm. 18mm would have been nice. Sometimes if you are not careful at what you are doing you may end up with a blown out picture because of the 2.8f stop. remember 2.8 will give you a background that is blurred so be careful to increase f stop if you want to capture a group...

Build quality is very solid and not overly heavy. Zoom ring seems a bit stiff but it might loosin with some use. Also liked that you can lock this lens down to prevent creep. Only keep this lens for about a week then sent it back. The big gripe I had was not getting sharp focus in auto.

12 March 2013

Was torn between this or a prime lens in the 70mm range for portrait work. Chose this for the versatility of the zoom and the previous reviews that touted the sharpness of lens. It didn't disappoint. This is the sharpest lens in my arsenal.
