Excerpt: Received the Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8, took it out for a test shoot last week and am completely satisfied with the results. Operated smoothly, reasonably quick and quiet focus, sharp results. Details in the test shots were very sharp, no noticeable vignetting.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I have to tell you that I am thrilled with my Tamron 24 to 70 mm F2 .8 lens for my Nikon D 7200. I had a friend that loaned me the Nikon 24-70 mm and I was very pleased with that as well. However, at the time I could not afford the Nikon version.
Excerpt: After using my "non-VR" 24-70mm Nikon lens to take (nighttime non-flash) Holiday photos of my granddaughter, I notice that the images were not sharp.

Excerpt: I have been using a Nikon D300, with the Nikkor 18-200mm VR lens, since 2008, rather casually I must say, doing mostly urban photography. A couple of years ago I decided to try portraiture and flowers so I purchased the Nikkor 105mm f/2.8 VR Micro and the 50mm f/1.8 (great lenses).
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Image quality, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I use it for general photography and landscapes. No issues at all. Photos are sharp with good color. Focus is not lightning fast, but fast enough for everyting I do. It's performed great for both landscapes and wildlife. The F2.8 is great for use in low light.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
Excerpt: If you've been pondering purchasing this lens, don't wait until after the $ rebate ends. I am a Nikonista, but after much research decided to buy this lens. It lives up to my expectations and yields exceptional results. Phenomenal clarity and nice bokeh.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
