Tamron SP 15-30mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2 Review (best bang for buck ultra-wide zoom)

Tamron SP 15-30mm F/2.8

Tamron SP 15-30mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2 at ag glance:

  • EF-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • Aperture Range: f/2.8 to f/22
  • Three LD and Three Aspherical Elements
  • AX, eBAND, BBAR, and Fluorine Coatings
  • Ultrasonic Silent Drive Autofocus Motor
  • VC Image Stabilization
  • Moisture-Resistant Construction
  • Rounded 9-Blade Diaphragm
  • Rear Drop-In Gel Filter Holder
  • Compatible with TAP-in Console

The Phoblographer posted their full review of the Tamron SP 15-30mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2 (Canon Mount).

From the conclusion:

Likes

– Fast maximum aperture

– Excellent image quality

– Versatile ultra-wide angle focal range

– Moisture resistance

Dislikes

– Not compatible with conventional lens filters

– Big and heavy

Although US$1,299 is certainly not an inconsequential sum of money, the Tamron SP 15-30mm f2.8 Di VC USD G2 is one of the best bang for your buck when it comes to ultra-wide angle zooms currently available on the market. While Tamron’s original 15-30mm f2.8 was an impressive lens in its own right, the addition of moisture resistance along with enhanced vibration compensation and improved lens coatings are certainly welcomed improvements. We just wish Tamron would put the lens on a diet so that it was less cumbersome to use, but that would probably require that they bend the laws of physics. With that said, we’d still recommend this lens to anyone that’s in the market for a versatile ultra-wide angle zoom lens.

The Phoblographer’s review comes with a huge set of sample pictures and analyses all optical aspects of the lens.

Tamron Confirms Lenses For Canon EOS R and Nikon Z Systems Are Coming

Tamron Lenses

In a recent interview with DPReview, Tamron execs confirmed the company will release lenses for Canon’s and Nikon’s full frame mirrorless systems.

Question: Do you have plans to create lenses for Canon RF and Nikon Z?

Answer: Yes, we’re also looking at that area. We have to do a lot of research and development into the reverse engineering, because they don’t disclose the details of their systems, so it’s a really hard job for us.

One size fits all?

Question: There are now four main full-frame mirrorless systems with different mount dimensions. Will you make completely different designs for the different mounts?

Answer: Each system has a different flange back distance and diameter. We need to do more research to see if we can use the same optical designs for the different mounts. But basically our approach will be the same as it is for DSLR. When we launch DSLR lenses we have the same optical design, and we customize for the different mounts. Even if the systems are totally different we’ll try to make a unified optical design.

If we design optics for a long flange back, we can adapt them for short flange back systems. It doesn’t work the other way around.

What about APS-C vs full frame sensors?

APS-C is still important to us, but when we think about the [industry], the full-frame market is expanding, so we’re looking at that market first – that’s the first priority. So gradually we’ll create a [full-frame] line and then at another time we can launch more APS-C lenses. The APS-C market is shrinking quite fast.
