Draw on the beauty of light
A constant-aperture high-speed standard zoom lens with image stabilisation
Playing with light, capture a subtle world of beauty.
A high-speed standard zoom lens featuring built-in Vibration Compensation.
Realizing both high performance and high image quality, this high-speed standard zoom lens offers 24mm to 70mm coverage together with Tamron's exclusive VC ( Vibration Compensation) system* and a USD ( Ultrasonic Silent Drive) motor for fast and quiet autofocus. Since this is a SP ( Super Performance) series lens, the optical design places the highest priority on image quality with the extensive use of special optics, including 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. In addition, the F/2.8 high speed and the circular diaphragm construction** enable this lens to achieve beautiful out-of-focus effects while the high resolution gives finely detailed images. In a Tamron first, a simple drip-proof structure is also featured. This full-spec standard zoom lens responds fully to the inspiration of the photographer.
* The Sony mount does not include the VC ( Vibration Compensation) system.
** The Tamron standard is that the almost-circular diaphragm form should be maintained from wide-open aperture to two stops down.
The Ultrasonic Silent Drive (USD) is Tamron's latest generation of autofocus motors. Thanks to the advanced motor technology and the newly developed software, the USD enables a fast, precise and almost silent photographic experience. There are few better options for capturing quick and dynamic subjects that arise in areas such as sports photography, fast cars or even wildlife photography

I got a Canon 100D a couple of years ago now. With it came the standard kit lens, and the first lens I bought for it was a 50mm prime. I loved the 50mm, but when I was attending weddings, the constant lens swapping was doing my head in. So after quite a bit of research, I decided to get this lens.
My thinking was, the 2.8 aperture throughout the zoom was a big upgrade over my kit lens (was 3.5 - 5.5 from memory), and having 2.8 at 50mm was good enough to get away with not having to swap to my prime for those really good depth of field shots.
After having this lens for nearly a year now, and having using it at numerous weddings since, I can honestly say I love it. It matched every expectation I had from every review I'd read. The picture quality is great.
Being honest, it is a little on the heavy side (I assume that's the 2.8 at 70mm + IS), and after holding it for a whole the arms do start to ache, but you do get use to this. As I said, I'm quite lazy and don't want to constantly swap lens, and this worked really well for me in achieving that. The IS definitely helps when you get a little unstable too!
I checked the auto focus with Tim Jackson's very simple focusing chart, ([...]), and found it was front focusing slightly but 5 + increments, on my D610 soon cured that. It does vignette noticeably at 2.8 but it's no biggy for me. It certainly doesn't matter a great deal as Studio portraits is what it will mainly be used for.
When I went online to Tamron to register this lens I met with a problem. The serial number was rejected by the registering software. Shades of grey import?
I phoned Tamron sales directly and spoke to a very friendly and helpful guy named Jim Mavor. He emailed a form to me to fill in with the Amazon receipt and two weeks later I got confirmation that my new toy was now duly registered!
Nice one Tamron!
+ Build Quality
+ Vibration control / IS/ VC
+ excellent focus (after it has locked)
- bigger than the 24-70 L
- lens cap doesn't stay on
- zooming isn't that smooth compared to the Canon
- autofocus seems to hunt a bit more
Overall I'm very happy with it and I'm selling my Canon L which has never been great with my full frame 5D MKIII.
