Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 Di USD Lens for Sony A
Key Features
  • A-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • Aperture Range: f/2.8 to f/22
  • Three Low Dispersion and Two XR Elements
  • Four Aspherical Elements
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.

I recently purchased a Sony 28-75 SAM from B+H. AF is a bit noisy. The Tamron has good reviews for quiet AF.The price point on the Tamron is very good.What is your opinion on these 2 lenses? Bought the Sony used from B+H. To be used on A99. Thanks
Asked by: John
Both lenses are very sharp. I do feel the Tamron lens is a little less noisy during autofocus. If you are shooting video than it might be better for you. But not by a huge amount.

Will this lens work with song a7ii ?
Asked by: Debashish
I'm sorry but this is an A mount lens and will not work with the A72, unless you get a lens adapter from A to E mount. Tamron does make an E mount lens, click the link below to view; https://bhpho.to/2GFXZ5w

question

I know is early but. Will this work with Nikon Z7/6?
Asked by: Anonymous
The Z7/Z6 has a Z Mount, you would need an adapter to use this A Mount Lens. Novoflex does offer a Sony A Lens to Nikon Z-Mount Camera Adapter, BH #NONIKZMINAF. https://bhpho.to/2OYH2gb

Which Sony mount is this lens compatible with? A-mount or E-mount? It's not clear from the description
Asked by: Colin
This lens is the A-mount version, will not fit an E-mount without adapter LAEA3/4. Image stabilization is not included in the Sony A-mount version of the lens. I am not sure Tamron has any native E-mount lenses yet but Sigma and Sony have several.
