[Review] Tamron AF 24-70mm f/2.8 SP Di USD VC Getting More Positive Reviews

Chris over at thephoblographer.com just reviewed Tamron’s new zoom lens, the AF 24-70mm f/2.8 SP Di USD VC (click here) for Canon mount. As with the other reviews I featured (here, here, and here) this one too confirms the absolutely positive impression people has with this lens. The review is detailed and comprehensive, and comes with lot of sample images. From the conclusion:

The Tamron 24-70mm f2.8 VC SP USD wins nothing less than my highest recommendations. Sure, it is expensive, but when you really weigh what you’re getting, it is quite worth its weight in gold. You’re getting excellent image stabilization, great build quality [...] excellent sharpness, accurate focusing that doesn’t need microadjusting, and versatile color rendition.

Tamron AF 24-70mm f/2.8 SP Di USD VC availability and price check: Amazon, B&H, Adorama, Canon USA, J&R, Digitalrev, Borrow Lenses, eBay

Tamron recently announced the new SP 24-70mm f/2.8 DI VC USD lens (in stock at B&H for $1,299, click here), and it comes naturally to compare it to Canon’s EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM (around $1,600, click here).
