Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 overview

  • 1Description

Characterized by apt focusing speed and image stabilization, the Canon EF-mount SP 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2 from Tamron is a revised fast standard zoom covering a versatile wide-angle to portrait-length range. A sophisticated optical design with two extra refractive elements, three low dispersion elements, three glass-molded aspherical elements, and one hybrid aspherical element helps to suppress aberrations and distortion throughout the zoom range while eBAND and BBAR coatings have been applied to individual elements to control lens flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color fidelity. Balancing its optical attributes, this lens also utilizes a USM autofocus motor to deliver notably quick, quiet, and precise focusing performance that suits both stills and video applications. Also, 5-stop-effective Vibration Compensation helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting in difficult lighting conditions. Additionally, the lens is moisture-resistant and has a fluorine coating on the front element to enable its use in trying environmental conditions.

Standard zoom is designed for full-frame Canon EF-mount DSLRs, however can also be used with APS-C models where it provides a 38.6-112mm equivalent focal length range.
Bright f/2.8 constant maximum aperture affords consistent brightness throughout the zoom range, and benefits working in difficult lighting conditions.
Two XR (extra refractive) and three LD (low dispersion) elements are featured in the optical design to noticeably limit color fringing and chromatic aberrations for improved clarity, color fidelity, and apparent sharpness.
Three glass-molded aspherical elements and one hybrid aspherical element help to reduce chromatic aberrations and distortion throughout the zoom range to deliver notable sharpness and accurate rendering.
Both eBAND and BBAR coatings have been applied to suppress ghosting and lens flare for improved contrast when working in backlit conditions.
VC image stabilization helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake by up to 5 stops or more effective handheld shooting in difficult lighting conditions. Separate VC modes are also available to suit various styles of shooting: Mode 1 is a balanced setting for general use, and promotes both a stabilized viewfinder image and stabilized results, while Mode 2 is designed exclusively for panning movements.
An Ultrasonic Silent Drive autofocus motor delivers quick and precise focusing performance to suit working with moving subjects. This motor also affords full-time manual focus control, and it is possible to focus on subjects as close as 1.25' away.
A moisture-resistant construction benefits this lens' use in inclement conditions, and a fluorine coating has also been applied to the front lens element to protect against dust, dirt, and smearing.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.
Compatible with optional TAP-in Console for fine-tuning select focusing adjustments and for updating lens firmware.

Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 reviews

SP 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2 Lens for Canon EF is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great lens value I bought this lens for run 'n gun video shooting with my Canon C100. After my first shoot, this has now become my goto lens for client projects. Canon's 24-70mm �f/2.8 lens doesn't have image stabilization, which I find essential for chasing around all day with a monopod. I almost didn't bring this new lens along for the shoot, thinking there would be plenty of light. What the heck - I'll bring it "just in case". �Well, Justin Case showed up immediately, where I quickly changed lenses to accommodate low-light.This lens performed wonderfully. Clear, sharp images and fast enough glass to enable me to see in darkish hallways and classroom where I had no control over the light.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid and Exceptional Lens So I reluctantly purchased this lens instead of the Canon 24-70mm after months of agony. I tried every way I could to justify the Canon. I have shot with the Canon and know what it can do. After reading many reviews, I decided to give the Tamron a try. I have put it through its paces, and It is truly exceptional. The clarity, sharpness, and every other spec is equal to the Canon 24-70mm. It is so solid and well-built. I love it. Actually, I was surprised at the reviews here because everywhere else, people are raving about this lens.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Sharp but not impressed with the VC location I bought it for a upcoming wedding job. I feel that the build is excellent and shoots very well. Very sharp images. That being said I noticed that when shooting I would unintentionally turn the VC off causing issues with my final product when I expected it to be on. Simple fix is to put tape over it o hold it on. I was noticed when using AF and trying to zoom in on my subject I would often turn the manual focus. An issues I haven't had with any other lens. Overall I feel it is an excellent buy and super sharp at a great price. However I am disappointed on the overall ergonomics and controls that I mentioned.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Good I wanted vibration control on a full-frame 24-70 lens to fit Canon. Waited years for Canon to sell one and then got this. 100% success! No problems at all after 6 weeks of use. The front filter diameter is very large which physically brings in more light BTW.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Returned two copies Purchased 24-70 G2 to replace my old Canon 24-70 2.8. 1st copy had focus issue and lens was hunting very badly. 2nd copy was a lot better than the 1st copy but still had focus issue. Both copies produced sharp images when using live view to focus, however, produced out of focused images when using view finder. Returned both copies to BH and received full refund with no hassle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Picture quality! Great picture quality, solid build... a bit heavy, but I'm using it with an adapter on a Sony A7ii.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it. Only thing is the vignette at 2.8 Great lens, worth the money. The only thing I don't care for is the vignette at 2.8. Easily fixed in post, but would be nice if it wasn't there. Also, Photoshop and Lightroom do not have this G2 version of the lens listed yet for lens correction, I'm sure they will soon.
