The Tamron SP 15-30mm f/2.8 Di VC USD is an ambitious, ultra-wide zoom lens with a fixed f/2.8 aperture and image stabilization, but like most lenses of this type, it shows significant distortion.

The new Tamron SP 15-30MM F/2.8 Di VC USD ultra-wide zoom lens was designed for professional photographers looking for a sharp lens that performs very well in low-light. One of the first ultra-wide lenses available on the market to feature optical image stabilization, it works well with the f/2.8...

  • +

    Comfortable and easy to operate, for a while, f/2.8 and VC provide great low-light and handheld performance, Controls aberrations and distortions very well, Sharp images, even when shooting wide open, Moisture resistant construction allows you to use the lens in most climates

    Large and heavy, will wear you out after some time, Lens shape prohibits the use of protective and creative filters

During the course of several days, I grew to love the Tamron SP 15-30mm f/2.8 Di FC USD more and more. What I soon realized is that my 24-70mm f/2.8 optic may be a nice, all-around glass, but it pales in comparison when it comes to shooting architecture and capturing dramatic perspectives.

This ultra-wide angle lens from Tamron sports a fast constant aperture of f/2.8 and as it is one of Tamron's 'SP' lenses, it sports rugged build quality and a dust and weather sealed construction.

I just got this lens a few days ago and thus far it has impressed me. I am currently using an A7r with Metabones Mk IV adapter and I was worried about compatibility or image quality issues. Fortunately, the Tamron 15-30mm works like a charm with the MB IV.

    Maybe a bit heavy for some people No filter kit yet Doesn't say Nikon on it, a problem for some.

Love this lens, stays sharp and contrasty even wide open. Super quick AF performance (on my Nikon D750). The lens is massive at over 2.5lb... And it features a very useful wide angle zoom range of 15-30mm, compared to the limited 14-24mm Nikon AF-s.
