Dustin Abbott reviewed he Tamron SP 15-30mm F2.8 VC G2 (A041) lens. He used the Tamron SP 15-30mm on a Canon EOS R and a Sony a7R III via adapter.

From his conclusion:

Perhaps the single biggest challenge for the Tamron SP 15-30mm F2.8 VC USD G2 (A041) lens is that there isn’t anything particularly wrong with the lens that it replaces.  There are some real advantages to the A041, from the build, weather sealing, and Tap In compatibility to the improvements to the autofocus and Vibration Compensation systems.  The image quality improvement, while mild, helps make the lens even more competitive.  But all of these improvements are evolutionary rather than revolutionary, which results in many existing A012 owners not feeling particularly motivated to upgrade.  But perhaps the A041 is less for them and more for those who don’t yet own a wide angle lens and are considering the merits of the available options on the market.  There is no question that the 15-30 G2 is one of the most attractive wide angle options out there for Canon and Nikon owner […]
