Tamron Announces SP 24-70mm F2.8 G2 (Model A032) High-Speed Zoom Lens

Tamron_SP 24-70mm G2_A032C_straight_4x5.jpgTamron has a new high-speed zoom lens coming out in late summer/early fall aimed at Nikon and Canon Full Frame DSLR owners (although you can use it APS-C systems too).

The SP 24-70mm F2.8 Di VC USD G2 (Model A032) should be perfect for all sorts of shooting conditions and photography styles, from landscape, portrait, travel, and street. Boasting a constant F2.8 maximum aperture across its 24-70mm focal range, it also features a new Dual MPU (Micro Processing Units) for improved autofocus speed and accuracy, up to five stops of vibration compensation (VC), and a 9-blade circular aperture for creamy bokeh. Other features include eBAND (Extended Bandwidth & Angular-Dependency) Coating, to reduce ghosting and flare during backlighting, moisture-resistant construction, and a Fluorine Coating on the front and rear elements to help clean off any dust and fingerprints.
