REVIEW: Tamron SP AF28-75mm f/2.8 XR Di LD Asp IF Macro
9 February 2011
Excerpt: Gary Wolstenholme test the small and light Tamron 28-75 f/2.8 lens. With downsizing technology and internal focusing, this could be a sheep in wolf's clothing. Tamron's 28-75mm costs around £357 and has a bright f/2.8 maximum aperture throughout the zoom range. It is amongst the cheapest lenses of the specification, which makes this lens excellent value for money. Sigma are the only other third party manufacturer offering lenses of similar specification.
Excerpt: To begin I will give a list of all the Tamron abbreviations for better understanding: AF : Autofocus AD : Anomalous Dispersion. Special optical glass design that reduces chromatic aberration by reducing the amount of “undesirable” light wavelength passage through the lens. ASL : Aspherical Glass used in the lens. Di : Digitally Integrated Design. This is the same as sigma’s DG lenses and simply has extra coatings on the glass.

Summary: Tamron SP AF 28-75mm f/2.8 XR Di LD ASPH (quite a name huh?) is full of surprises. The lens shows very solid performance throughout the zoom range along with low to moderate level of artifacts such as vignetting and CA. Price is another strong attractive point here and at ~US$350, Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 remains one of the more affordable quality lenses out there.

23 July 2008
Excerpt: Lens shown in Nikon mount The Tamron SP AF28-75/2.8 XR Di LD Aspherical (IF) Macro is a fast, general purpose lens for both digital and film cameras. On a film camera the 28-70mm range covers a lot of applications from landscapes and photojournalism to travel and environmental portraits. On a typical APS-C digital camera, such as the Canon EOS 20D, it has the same field of view as a 45-120mm lens would on a full frame 35mm camera.
