Will this lens work on a canon eos rebel T7i?

Will this lens work on a canon eos rebel T7i?
Asked by: Kathy
The honest answer is, I just don’t know. The electronics and software that control lens functions have to be compatible across platforms (lens & camera) for a match up to be successful, and then only people capable of determining that are the manufacturers involved. If B&H doesn’t have and answer, check with Tamron in whatever way you can. If you don’t get a satisfactory answer, try it on a trial basis, or look for a lens that is certified compatible with your camera.

I know the 28-75mm will change to 45-120mm on a crop sensor camera. Will the 2.8 f stop change as well? If so, what will it change to?
Asked by: Debbie
No. The f-stop is a function of the lens construction not focal length.

Is this lens sharp considering it has such a varying focal range?

Zoom lenses nowadays, compared to the past, are computer designed and have much better optical formulas with better optics and coatings. To answer your question, yes, this lens is sharp with good color and contrast.

Anyone know how this compares to Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED VR Lens?
Asked by: Mason
The biggest differences that the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED VR Lens offers is a slightly wider and slightly longer focal length as well as a variable maximum aperture of f/3.5-4.5. While the Tamron 28-75mm has a constant aperture of f/2.8 across the zoom range, it lacks stabilization.

What's the difference between a spherical and Aspherical camera lens? And why would I choose one over the other?
Asked by: Dan
Spherical lenses have an even round curve while aspherical lenses are curved more like an oval. The optical engineers use differently shaped optics to help reduce image distortion and spread the light evenly over the image sensor/film plane. There isn't really a choice between one or the other for the consumer. For lenses in the 28-75mm or similar range, they all use aspherical elements.
