Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD

(8 customer reviews)

The Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD is a high-quality camera glass that is compatible with full frame cameras. This lens provides a fast, near noiseless autofocus thanks to its ring-type motor that employs a piezoelectric ceramic element. It has a bright aperture value of f/2.8 and 9 aperture blades, which allows for excellent bokeh. The lens is heavy and measures 108mm in length, so it requires a separate lens bag for transport. It has a filter diameter of 82mm, which can be expensive to replace, but the Cokin system can be used as an alternative. The lens is made with high-quality materials and coatings, ensuring excellent build quality and resolution.


  • The Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD is an amazing lens for photographers who need a versatile zoom lens. The lens has an excellent build quality and a robust construction that gives it a professional feel. The image quality is outstanding, with crystal clear pictures that are sharp, vibrant, and full of detail. The autofocus is quick and accurate, and the bokeh looks beautiful. Additionally, the Vibration Compensation is a fantastic feature that allows us to capture blur-free shots at slower shutter speeds.


  • The only downside to this lens is its price, which may be out of reach for some photographers. Apart from that, there are no real negatives to report.


  • Overall, I would highly recommend the Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD to any photographer looking for a high-quality zoom lens that can handle anything from landscapes to portraits. The lens is well-built, has excellent autofocus, image quality, and Vibration Compensation, making it an excellent investment for any photographer looking to take their photography to the next level.

Optical design

Bright lens thanks to the high aperture value Has 9 aperture blades, with this amount of aperture blades you will be satisfied with the result. The ring-type motor employs a piezoelectric ceramic element to generate two high-frequency ultrasonic vibrations on the motor’s stator ring for fast, near noiseless autofocus.

Physical characteristics

With a lens filter diameter of 82 mm lens filters in this range can be expensive, purchase lens – and filter – only if you plan to keep them for long time, make a try with used ones. Weights 825 grams so it is a heavy lens, consider using its own lens bag. 108 mm long, requires consideration if you want to carry in the camera bag.

    Best 70-200/2.8 on the market. Honestly can’t think of another way to get a good quality 2.8 telephoto for this price. This beats the older Canon/Nikon variants in AF speed and sharpness, and beats their current variants in price; with this being weather sealed as well, there really aren’t any downsides to this lens. Sharp wide open, fast focusing, and works great with the Sigma MC-11 on my A7ii – I’d imaging it’s similar on a Metabones too.

    Hard to go wrong with this Tamron, they knocked it out of the park with this G2.
