Tamron have announced the development of the SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD (Model A007), a full-size high-speed standard zoom lens equipped with VC (Vibration Compensation) image stabilisation and USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive), with resolution at the top of its class.
The lens features special high-grade glass in the three LD elements, three glass molded aspherical lenses, one hybrid aspherical lens and two XR (Extra Refractive Index) glasses, delivering top-of-the-class quality images suited to this high-grade lens. Using a rounded diaphragm, the lens achieves gorgeous blur effects. This rounded diaphragm retains a nearly circular shape even when taken two stops down from its fully open state.
The SP 24-70mm features a flower-shaped lens hood and is compatible with Canon, Nikon and Sony cameras.*
The availability and the price of the lens is to be confirmed. Visit Tamron for more information.
