Tamron‘s SP 24-70mm f/2.8 DI VC USD Lens for Canon Cameras delivers a very useful range from 24mm true wide-angle to 70mm short telephoto, useful for landscapes, interiors, portraits, street photography and much more. The continuous maximum aperture of f/2.8 combined with built-in Vibration Compensation image stabilization make it possible to achieve stellar results in low-light situations, while the Ultrasonic Silent Drive (USD) gives you very quiet autofocus capabilities that are ideal for shooting video.

The 24-70mm lens uses specialized high-grade glass in the three LD elements, three Glass Molded Aspherical Lenses, one Hybrid Aspherical Lens and two XR (Extra Refractive Index) glasses, for excellent image quality. Using a rounded 9-blade diaphragm, the lens delivers fine bokeh–the out-of-focus area in a photo. Moisture-resistant construction helps protect the lens from any water that comes near it. And all of this is in a compact (3.5 x 4.6″), lightweight (29.1 oz) package that won’t wear you out, even carrying it all day.

    I am dying for this lens to be great. I’m really want a 2.8 walk around zoom with IS. I can’t believe with the promotion of video from these cameras Canon & Nikon have nothing like this for full frame cameras. This is the recipe for the #1 walk around lens: f/2.8, stabilized, lightweight, small, well built, and some weather sealing. I love my f/2.8 70-200 IS II but it is HEAVY and large. Now for some reviews to make sure it is as good as the recipe dictates.

      Dan..did you see this review? Roger seems VERY credible.
      I am torn up about all of this ….I sold my 24-105 f/4L IS Canon 3 months ago to buy the new Canon 24-70mm II, anticipating the original availabilty date.
      Now who knows when there will be a lens. July? …maybe. I am definitely going to wait for the II to come out and get reviewed. Like Roger says, having the Tamron, which performs BETTER than the current Canon 24-70mm AND has IS is a game changer and makes the new Canon not so desirable at a $2300 price with no IS. The II has got to be spectacularly sharp and fast focusing to justify the price tag or it just won’t be worth the money.
      I hate having to be patient!!!!! Especially since I have no walk-around, general purpose zoom right now. LOL!
      I am betting the II is going to be impressive especially with rumor of Canon coming out with a big MB full-frame to compete with the Canon D800. This new lens will HAVE to hit the ball out of the field~
