Realizing both high performance and high image quality, the Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 DI VC USD Lens for Canon is a 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 Canon
Pros: Vibration Compensation works great
Cons: Not as good image quality as the Canon 24-70 2.8L II (but close. I think it is at least as good as the Mark I)
Other Thoughts: I took an egg away for the somewhat slow AF and lower image quality (Compared to the Canon). Don't get me wrong though: If you use stabilization a lot this is an excellent choice and bargain! The image quality honestly is quite good (just not as good as the Canon). I believe the gain in image quality with the canon mark II over the Tamron does not justify the extra cost.
