  • 1Description

This Di lens is currently the most compact and lightest in the history of fast zoom lenses. Its compactness makes it look and feel like an ordinary standard zoom lens, yet provides the versatility that a fast constant maximum aperture offers and will definitely reshape photographic horizons.

Features like LD glass elements and Internal Focusing put this lens in the same category of professional lenses as much bigger and more expensive Tamron lenses.

LD glass elements reduces various aberrations while minimizing the fall-off of light at the corners
Features XR (extra refractive index) glass and efficient use of aspherical lenses

    Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 reviews

    28-75mm f/2.8 XR Di Autofocus Lens for Canon EOS is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 340.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 90% of Canon 24-70 f/2.8 for 1/4 price I have both this Tamron lens + my wife insisted on buying latest and greatest Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM Lens. I tested both lenses and my not very professional conclusion is: 1) their sharpness is absolutely the same except 2.8 where Canon is a bit better 2) Tamron is lighter and more compact 3) Canon focuses a bit faster and without noise So, probably it makes sense to buy Canon if you are pro and it makes sense to buy this Tamron lense if you are semi-pro or hobby photographer. This Tamron is a vast improvement over Canon 18-55mm kit lens. The best Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L is a small improvement over Tamron 28-75mm.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Use mine for weddings I have been using this lens for around 2 years now. I shoot Seniors, Weddings, Events, etc... I have been wanting the 24-70L for a while, but didn't want to spend the money on a new lens when mine worked good. Well a friend of mine just got the Canon. I borrowed it for a wedding this weekend to see if it was really 3 times as good as my Tamron,,,it isn't. It quenched my desire to spend $real quick. In low light the Canon had the same focus problems as the Tamron. It was just too dark. The focus on the Canon was a little quieter. After 6 hours of holding up that 24-70L, my arms were hurting! The Tamron is lighter. So, I am going to stick with the Tamron for now. Thanks for reading.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best 3rd party lens! I have to say this is one of the most overlooked lenses in it's class. The lens works especially well in low light, superior even to my 2 Canon L series lenses! Otherwise, however (for Canon users) this lens is 2nd only to the L series (but only marginally!). Fast at 2.8 with little distortion, very good color and fairly good contrast. Sharpness also superb (equal to Tokina)! As a wedding photographer, I find the focusing is fast and accurate, even in low light conditions (i.e. reception venues/poorly lit churches). Biggest Bang-For-The-Dollar. Buy this lens and you won't be sorry!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME Lens I bought the lens about 5 years ago to use on my 20d- was awesome on the 20d, like an idiot I sold it... last month- i really needed a zoom and I was a little torn between this and tha canon 24-70 - i need a good zoom for wedding group formals- i was a littl enervous to use it on a 5d becasue of soft corners that everyone seemed to talk about..Glad to say I had no soft ness issues on full frame. I also read alot oabout focusing issues- I never had an issue with focusing on my 20d or 5d - It seems pretty quick to lock on and I have used it in all types of scenarios already and I all I can do is praise this lens. buy it - you will not be disappointed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The walk around lens I have had this lens for 7 years and it lives on one of my bodies at all times. There is no higher compliment. I keep itching to upgrade to all L glass but when I look at the output from this lens, I just cant justify spending more money on less reach. One major warning; I shoot 1.3 and 1.6 crop bodies, on a full sensor the softness and CA on the edges are just too severe to accept, but if you are shooting a crop sensor, this lens is near the top of the line. When you add in it's value for the price, it is head and shoulders above the crowd.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for the money Overall, a great buy. I tested it side by side with the canon 24-70 2.8 L and found the shortcomings to this model is the focus speed, some focus accuracy issues and (obviously) not as much on the wide end. Works incredibly well with a flash/proper amount of ambient light. If compared in reasonable shooting conditions it looks near identical to the canon with comparable vignetting (even wide open), reasonably natural bokeh and very light weight, the only real advantage over Canon. I would recommend testing it out immediately upon buying to make sure you didn't get a lemon. These 3rd party lens manufactures are known for that, but so long as you get a good one, its a steal.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent lens and value I bought this lens for my walk around lens on vacation. I don't think I took it off the whole trip. I did 2 baby shoots with it, a family session, and tons of landscape and cityscape shots. I'm using this lens on a Canon 5d mkII body and absolutely love it. I researched the lens and found that for almost half the price of the Canon lens I could get this gem that produces excellent results. The lens was as fast as I needed it to be, sharp enough, and it produces a nice bokeh. It's also a lot lighter than the Canon L series lens which makes it more comfortable for lugging around all day. This is my third Tamron lens and won't be my last. Highly recommended.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Lens for the Price I use this lens mostly for portraiture and lifestyle photography. It's a pretty decent lens for the price. The images are not as sharp as the ones that I get from my prime lenses, but they're pretty good considering. I rarely attempt to open my ap to 2.8, though, because the images at that aperture are usually not as tack sharp as I'd like them to be. I do love the ability to get so close to my subject when in cramped spaces without having to worry about too much distortion. I also often find that the lens searches for focus in low light, and can be very slow and frustrating. But when the lighting is well, the lens does great!
