Boasting both high performance and high image quality, this high-speed standard zoom lens offers 24–70mm coverage together with Tamron’s exclusive VC (vibration compensation) image stabilization system and a USD (ultrasonic silent drive) motor for fast, quiet autofocus.
The 35mm full-size zoom lens recently took top honors as the EISA European Lens 2012–2013. If you shoot with a full-frame digital SLR, this is a seriously attractive lens that easily matches the demands of today’s high-resolution cameras—with its large aperture, built-in image stabilization and edge-to-edge sharpness.
The lens is also sturdy and well built, with rubber seals protecting it against moist or dusty conditions. And since this is an SP (super performance) series lens, its optical design places the highest priority on image quality, using special optics that include three LD (low dispersion) lenses and two XR (extra refractive Index) lenses. The result is best-in-class image quality that reduces various types of distortion, so the SP 24–70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD feels and performs like a professional lens.
In addition, its fast f/2.8 aperture and circular diaphragm will let you achieve beautiful out-of-focus effects while the high resolution produces finely detailed images.
Tamron’s SP 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD lens is available for Canon, Nikon and Sony (without VC) mounts. $1,299. tamron.com
