Realizing both high performance and high image quality, this high-speed standard zoom lens offers 24mm to 70mm coverage together with Tamrons exclusive VC (Vibration Compensation) system and a USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive) motor for fast and quiet autofocus. Since this is an 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 type 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.
This review is from: Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 DI VC USD Lens for Nikon
Pros: Image quality is superb. Dare I say a bit better than my old 24-70 2.8 Nikon. VC works great I usually get keepers down to 1/10th second hand held. distortion and CA clean up very easily with lightroom profile. Even wide open on my D800 corner to corner sharpness is excellent wide open and superb stopped down.
Cons: Auto focus isn't as fast as Nikon 24-70 (fastest focusing lens I have owned) but still very fast and virtually silent. Autofocus can hunt a bit in very low light (the Nikon seems to focus in almost total darkness).
