Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 overview

  • 1Description

Tamron's SP 24-70mm f/2.8 DI USD Lens for Sony Cameras delivers a very useful range from 24mm true wide-angle to 70mm short telephoto, useful for landscapes, interiors, portraits, street photography and much more. The continuous maximum aperture of f/2.8 makes it possible to achieve stellar results in low-light situations, while the Ultrasonic Silent Drive (USD) gives you very quiet autofocus capabilities that are ideal for shooting video.

The 24-70mm lens uses specialized high-grade glass in the three LD elements, three Glass Molded Aspherical Lenses, one Hybrid Aspherical Lens and two XR (Extra Refractive Index) glasses, for excellent image quality. Using a rounded 9-blade diaphragm, the lens delivers fine bokeh--the out-of-focus area in a photo. Moisture-resistant construction helps protect the lens from any water that comes near it. And all of this is in a compact (3.5 x 4.6"), lightweight (29.1 oz) package that won't wear you out, even carrying it all day.

Uses specialized high-grade glass in the three LD elements, three Glass Molded Aspherical Lenses, one Hybrid Aspherical Lens and two XR (Extra Refractive Index) glasses, delivering top-of-the-class quality images suited to this high-grade lens. Using a rounded diaphragm, the lens achieves gorgeous blur effects.
Features USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive) to power a speedy AF drive together with a continuous manual mechanism.
This high-speed standard zoom lens has a wide-end focal length of 24mm that expands the photographic area.
The lens adopts the latest optical design USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive) in a lighter and more compact package.
Moisture-resistant construction helps prevent water from penetrating the lens.
In the ultrasonic motor, a piezoelectric element arranged in a ring formation generates ultrasonic vibrations in a metallic ring stator, and the vibration energy is used to rotate a metallic ring rotor that is attached to the stator. The rotation energy is in turn transferred from the metallic ring rotor to operate the focus lens.

    Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 reviews

    SP 24-70mm f/2.8 Di USD Lens for Sony Cameras is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Lens Walk-around, portrait, and indoor lens with fast f/2.8 capability. Replaced (returned) the Sony Zeiss 28-70 f/2.8 for this lens because (a) it cost $ more, and (b) it was 'sloppy' when attached to my Sony SLT A99 at the lens/body interface...it moved at the extreme focal length ranges...very discomforting. After 100s of picts comparing picts from the Sony to this lens...Tamron has nailed it! I will ALWAYS shop Tamron equivalents before settling for another Sony Z or G lens, period. You will LOVE this lens.Only con

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens and half the coast of Sony's Very sharp and excellent build quality, hood fits a little tight and hard getting on and off but that's the only negative I found.Used it a few time now doing senior pics and have loved it. Just as good as Sony's I believe and Tamron has a much better warranty and frankly Sony's product support sucks, I'm in a battle with them currently about another lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not just an alternative to Sony Vario-Sonnar T* 24-70mm I own the first version of the Sony Vario-Sonnar 24-70 and indeed is a faster focus lens, but at 24 mm and wide open (2.8) ,there is frequent vignetting and decrease sharpening . The Tamron is a bigger lens, but I think the sharper pictures outperform the Sony version. It is not just a saving in price, but you are getting a very competitive performer for half the price if you don't mind the fact that the Tamron is mostly plastic made ,don't denote the quality construction of its pricier competitor. You won't be disappointed with this lens when you see the quality nice pictures is capable of.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this lens!! I use this lens to shoot wedding videos on my a99. This thing is silky smooth, very quiet auto focus when I use auto focus (which isn't that much) but it sure is nice to have.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Nice Sharp Lens - bit slow on the focus BIG LENS. Nice and sharp though. A bit slow with focus due to the adapter which actually has a mirror in it!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I thought is was only ok Had to return for a problem...But for the price some thing's could have been a lot better like background blur & focusing... Was disappointed. Seemed to be well made though.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from not vibration compentation for sony. It is very expensive, I have a 18 -270 tamron and I think is better than this, buy it for the compensation vibration, but when I received the lens, was saying that had it not, then, why so expensive.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Undervalued lens For the price, you really can't beat the performance of this lens. The company stands behind their product with a six year warranty.
