In the ever heated debate of Tamron vs. Sigma vs. Nikon/Canon, a new competitor has arrived. Tamron has released an update of their popular 24-70mm f/2.8 lens. Ever since Tamron began to create the new SP series lenses, starting with the 45mm, 35mm, and 15-30mm lenses, they’ve been hitting home runs. Having extensively used the 45mm f/1.8 SP lens, and doing a few shoots with their other new lenses, I had high hopes for the new Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 G2.
Shortly after releasing the world’s first 18-400mm zoom lens, Tamron has another announcement. They are launching a new high-speed zoom lens: SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD G2. It’s intended for full frame cameras, and it offers some improvements over their previous 24-70mm model. It features faster and highly accurate autofocus, and Tamron emphasizes that this lens has the highest vibration compensation performance of any lens in its class. It’s versatile and intended for a wide range of shooting styles, and shooting in different lighting and weather conditions.
