Tamron 24-70mm at Maximum Aperture
Pritzker Pavilion, in Millennium Park, Chicago, captured with a handheld Canon EOS 5D and Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 lens with Vibration Compensation (VC) engaged. (@24mm, ISO 100, f/2.8, 1/15 sec.)
Enter Tamron’s new SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD Model A007. Selling for $1299, it’s not cheap, although less expensive than comparable OEM lenses. The image-stabilized Tamron 24-70mm F/2.8 VC is available for D-SLRs from Canon (tested on a Canon EOS 5D) and Nikon (also for Sony sans built-in stabilization). The lens is targeted at full-frame cameras, but is also compatible with APS-C (cropped) sensor D-SLRs, upon which you’d be working with around a 36-105mm equivalent focal length, depending on camera model.
