Excerpt: I purchased this lens to go with my Nikon D750 and it is a great match. Fantastic image quality, sharp even wide open, VR works perfectly for video. Regarding the infamous 'onion bokeh' issue...well, it's there.
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Great in Low Light, Rugged, Sharp, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I am a portrait and wedding photographer. This lens is amazing. It is fast and amazing in low light. The bokeh is beautiful. If you are looking for a lens with tons of versatility, this is the lens!
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).
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.
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.
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
