  • Excerpt: When it comes to lenses I am always looking for the perfect balance of quality, sharpness, and price. I really believe this lens delivers just that. Image quality is excellent. It feels incredibly well built and the price is right (especially with the $100 rebate I got).

lens hood problem

  • Excerpt: It's a good lens overall on my d610. 2.8 is sharp. However the lens hood is a major issue. I read on some forum before that the hood is so snuggy peopel broke the internal parts when tried to rotate the hood in place. I tried it, and they were right.

  • Summary: Ok so I purchased this lens thinking that I am getting a screaming deal $999.00 for the Tamron 24-70 F/2,8. I called Tamron USA to verify that this is a Tamron USA lens and they told me this lens is a GRAY market lens.

  • Excerpt: Almost as good as the Canon, has image stabilization, 5 year warranty... half the price. What's not to like? Lightroom does a great job fixing any barrel distortion and vignetting. I gave it 4 stars because I had to send a copy back due to the IS causing blur.

Great lens

  • Summary: It's a very good lens. A bit wider than the original nikon 24-70 2.8. It's actually 22mm wide. The autofocus is a bit slower than the original Nikon lens, that's why I didn't give it 5 stars.

Wonderful lens with two drawbacks

  • Summary: This is a wonderful lens and by many described as a killer for the Nikon and Canon equivalents, mainly because it provides VR / vibration reduction (or whatever your brand calls it) at half the price.

Great Lens!

  • Summary: I took an egg away for the somewhat slow AF and lower image quality (Compared to the Canon). Don't get me wrong though: If you use stabilization a lot this is an excellent choice and bargain! The image quality honestly is quite good (just not as good as the Canon).
  • Pros: Vibration Compensation works great Fast 2.8 Accurate Auto-Focus (on my Canon T3i)
  • Cons: Not as good image quality as the Canon 24-70 2.8L II (but close. I think it is at least as good as the Mark I) Auto-Focus seems slow, and not accurate good in AI Servo $1000 or so less than the Canon
