Unveiled: Tamron Releases an Updated 24-70mm Zoom Lens


Tamron has announced its SP 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2 lens, a versatile, large-aperture zoom for Nikon F and Canon EF-mount cameras. Compatible with full-frame and APS-C (36-105mm 35mm equivalent focal length) cameras, it combines fast performance and sharp focus in a standard zoom.

Tamron’s high performance Micro Processing Unit (MPU) improves speed and accuracy when focusing. Likewise, a dedicated MPU delivers 4.5 stops of image stabilization to produce consistent, sharp images. In addition, a Vibration Compensation (VC) Auto Detect Mode 2 has been added for panning movements. For versatility of use, its minimum focusing distance is 37.4", offering a magnification ratio of 1:6:1.

The lens utilizes eBAND coating for optimal anti-reflective properties, minimizing flare and ghosting, while its fluorine coating and moisture-resistant construction make working outdoors a breeze. For ease of use, it has a new Built-in Lens Hood Lock to prevent misalignment. It is compatible with the TAMRON TAP-in Console to maintain optimal alignment functionality, and takes 82mm filters.


Can you tell us what the changes are from the previous version per chance?

Te G2 version updated the stabiliation which reduces shake by up to 5 stops and has a new Micro-Processing Unit for faster,more precise autofocus.


Will Tamron have a Sony A mount any time soon?

Hi BR - 

No announcements yet.  But if they do, we will be sure to post it up on our website

Looking forward to seeing how it compares the the Nikon 24-70mm.  I'm on the market for a new 24-70mm.  I'm very pleased with my Tamron 15-30mm and 70mm-200mm.
