Summary: Very sharp lens. I really struggled with whether I should buy this for about $1,200 or the Nikon version for about $1,800. Thought about it for several months. Finally decided on this one, safe in the knowledge that I could return it if not satisfied. I am so happy I did. I love the lens. It is incredible sharp and focuses really fast. It works beautifully on my full frame Nikon D750. It's a well designed and well built professional lens. You won't be disappointed.
Excerpt: I have been looking for a lens that I can put on the camera and go out for they day. I bought this only a week ago but I've used it already for a photoshoot. Amazing lens to use. The colors are vibrant, the photos are clear and crisp and razor sharp. I'm so glad that I purchased it. So far the only thing I noticed was in lower light it did search for focus one time. So in closing stop reading this review and buy it.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Summary: I tested it on a Nikon D7100 and D610. The results were very good specially on the D610. With the the full frame sensor is where I noticed extreme sharpness even at F2.8. Before having this lens I will say my sharpest one was the Nikon 50 1.8G. I took photos of still objects that I usually use for testing and did noticed more detail that I didn't achieved before.The VC is a great feature that will justify to buy Tamron instead of Nikon besides a better price.
Summary: REALLY sharp lens! I was very pleased with the results from this lens! I've done a lot of work with it lately and fellow photographers assumed I was using a really expensive prime lens for most of it because it was so sharp! The bokeh is not super creamy, so if that's what you're really wanting, I'd look elsewhere, but I'm not super obsessed with bokeh so it suits me just fine!
The Tamron 24-70 VC delivers what my Nikon 24-70 could not...

Summary: Very happy with the Tamron 24-70 Di VC lens so far. Much better perfomance than my Nikon 24-70 had. Let me give a little background on my experience with the Nikon lens: Used it on a D90 and D700 initially, with pretty decent results on the D700, but not so good on the D90. After upgrading the D90 to D7000, the lens still did not produce very good images on DX, but still worked fairly good on the D700.
Buy it, buy it now, don't think twice your wasting the time you could be shooting with it.

Summary: Awesome build quality, 7 year warranty you know they built this to last. DXOMARKS testing shows its the best 24-70 at any price. and real world results show the same . With my new D750 and this lens the pictures are out of the world.
Summary: I bought two copies of this lens, and had the same issue with both. Returned the first, but ended up keeping the second. The main appeal to me was the f 2.8 aperture, although I figured out right away that there was a significant fall-off in sharpness below 3.5. My main problem is that sharpness and contrast just don't measure up to the hype. I read a lot of reviews and watched a bunch of Youtube video reviews and thought this would end up being the best lens in my bag.
