We take a closer look at some of the new and improved features on the second generation Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2 Lens.
The Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2 is a full frame, fast aperture second generation ‘standard’ zoom lens for full-frame Canon and Nikon DSLRs. Not only does it have image stabilisation, but it’s been measured to being 5 stops of it. The lens covers a full frame optically stabilised focal length range from a wide 24mm to a short telephoto 70mm, providing you with shooting angles that are ideal for landscape, portrait, product, group shots, street, and travel photography. A fast maximum aperture of f/2.8 helps users shoot at faster shutter speeds in low light and provides exceptional depth of field control. In addition, the lens has nine circular aperture blades that are sealed against dust and moisture.
As if that isn’t enough, the lens also features dramatically improved autofocus performance, thanks to a micro-processor unit, and better image quality thanks to special elements and coatings. This lens features a full-frame EF mount to make it compatible with Canon’s full-frame and cropped sensor DSLR cameras OR for Nikon users, a full-frame Nikon F mount to make it compatible with Nikon’s FX full-frame and DX cropped sensor DSLR cameras.
