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 makes it a compelling alternative to the much...

  • +

    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

Okay, I would have preferred the lens to accept 77mm instead of 82mm filters, since my accessories top out at 77mm, and large glass circular polarizers are an expensive proposition, but that’s the price you pay for fast glass. That said, I never once felt at cross-purposes with the 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.

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 Sony version doesn’t include vibration compensation (VC) because Sony DSLRs already have that feature...

Tamron took a bold step in providing a lens with image stabilization in this category - perhaps sacrificing image sharpness to provide the hand-holding convenience. The question for the prospective shooter of this lens would be, do you value image sharpness at Æ’/2.8 over image stabilization, or...

This highly anticipated lens from Tamron covers the popular 24-70mm range with a fast constant aperture of f/2.8. It is one of Tamron's 'SP' lenses, which denotes that it should be able to produce professional quality results.

The Tamron SP 24–70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD lens does what its big-name competitors can’t do. It allows you to take sharper handheld photographs in all lighting conditions without compromising quality.

The Tamron SP 24–70 mm f/2.8 Di VC USD, although less expensive than its brand name competitors produced by Canon, Nikon or Sony, is not cheap at all because you must pay for it over 4,000 PLN. It is by 1,000 PLN more expensive than the Sigma 24-70 mm f/2.8 EX DG HSM.

A popular lens choice for full-frame camera users is the 24-70mm f/2.8 optic, because its range covers general use and the fast aperture is constant throughout the entire focal range. Indeed, most camera retailers recommend it as the lens to buy with a full-frame camera as part of a kit.

The Tamron AF 24-70mm f/2.8 SP Di USD VC already delivered very good results in the full format scope so it's not a surprise that the APS-C results are even better! The resolution characteristic is almost flawless with an excellent center from f/2.8 up to f/8 and a very good outer image region.

I am very pleased with my Tamron 24-70mm f2.8 VC usd for Nikon lens. I read all sorts of reviews on the lens many of which compared it very favorably with the Nikon and Canon counterparts.

The worst lens hood I've ever had ...It feels cheap, to put it and remove it from the lens, you have to exert enough force, do not click, as another would.Really disappointed, poor quality.

Great all around lens. Fast and accurate focus. Very good in low light. The f2.8 throughout the entire focus range is a great feature.

    Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

    A little on a heavy side.

This lens is at least as good as its reviews ... despite an issue with my copy. It is crisp, clear & is generally a high value FX lens at a lower than average price. Upon receipt my copy worked for three weeks and then the auto-focus function quit.

This Tamron lens is more than suitable as an alternative to Canon's flagship 24-70 f/2.8 II. The lens is solid, well built, tack sharp, and has the benefit of IS! Images produced have wonderful color and clarity.

As the only 24-70mm f/2.8 currently on the market that has image stabilization (VC as Tamron calls it, or VR in Nikon parlance) this lens is a no-brainer as the best choice for DSLR video. Value is unmatched compared to Nikon's version which is $500 more expensive WITHOUT image stabilization.

It is distinguished is a cheap material , costs fit the lens is not the same experience as with the nikon lenses, which makes a clean click and are easy to take, this is hard to get and harder to put ... you must do hard.

What can I say? The replacement hood is identical to the one that came with the lens. I lost the original while on a photo walk. I use a BlackRapid strap, and occasionally, the lens brushes my leg and the hood falls off - apparently easily - since it happens frequently.
