Tamron SP AF 28-75mm f/2.8 XR Di LD Aspherical [IF] Lens

PhotoReview
1 July 2010
  • Summary: A fast, high-performance standard zoom lens for digital SLR cameras.Although Tamron's SP AF 28-75mm f/2.8 XR Di LD Aspherical [IF] lens has been designed for cameras with 36 x 24mm sensors, it is also usable on cameras with smaller, APS-C sized sensors, where it covers a focal length range of 44.8-120mm on Canon DSLRs or 42-112.5mm on all the rest. The fast f/2.8 maximum aperture applies throughout the 2.7x zoom range with both sensor sizes. . .
  • Pros: You want a fast standard zoom lens with excellent performance for use on ‘full frame' and ‘APS-C' DSLR cameras., You'd like a lens that requires no readjustment when you fit polarisers and graduated filters., You want attractive bokeh at wide apertures. Don't buy this lens if :, You require built-in image stabilisation., You want excellent edge-to-edge sharpness., You need true macro capabilities.

Tamron AF 28-75mm f/2.8 SP XR Di LD Aspherical (IF) (Nikon) - Review / Lab Test Report

photozone.de
11 October 2008
  • Conclusion: The Tamron AF 28-75mm f/2.8 SP XR (forgive me for using a shorter variant of the name ...) proved to be a very good lens in the lab. The resolution figures are among the highest tested among the standard zoom lenses - the center resolution is generally excellent and the borders follow closely on very good to excellent levels. The distortions are very low as is the amount of vignetting and even CAs are very well under control.
