The Tamron SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD is a fast standard zoom lens for Canon and Nikon full-frame DSLR cameras. It features a constant aperture of f/2.8 throughout the range, Vibration Compensation (VC) technology, an ultrasonic focus motor for quiet AF operation, and a splashproof construction. The optical formula comprises 17 lens elements in 12 groups, including three low-dispersion, two high-refractive-index and three glass-moulded aspherical elements as well as a hybrid aspherical element; and an iris diaphragm with nine rounded aperture blades.

  • Moisture-Resistant Construction
  • Compact (3.5x4.6") & Lightweight (29oz)

A popular lens choice for full-frame camera users is the 24-70mm f/2.8 optic, because its range covers general use and the fast aperture is constant throughout the entire focal range. Indeed, most camera retailers recommend it as the lens to buy with a full-frame camera as part of a kit. We usually identify third-party lenses as more affordable alternatives to brand-name optics, and any such products stir up a lot of interest. In the case of the Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 EX DG HSM lens, for example, it is at least half the price of some proprietary models at around £600. Somewhat surprisingly, though, this is not the case with the Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD.
