SP 15-30mm f/2.8 Di VC USD

Available now, the Tamron 15-30mm lens will be a great new addition to any Tamron user's Kit. Take a look at our review of the lens here. Here's some key features of the lens: 

This Ultra Wide-angle 15-30mm zoom lens continues the development of lenses for professional photographers and enthusiasts adding an ultra-wide-angle solution to their current line up of pro quality optics for full frame users.

Key Features:

Superb Image quality and performance

The optical construction of 18 elements in 13 groups, including and XGM (eXpanded Glass Moulded Aspherical) element within the front group and several LD (Low Dispersion) glass elements assures that this lens delivers outstanding image quality throughout the entire zoom range and from corner to corner.

VC stabilization Tailored for Ultra Wide and Low light

Recognising the need for an image stabilisation solution for fast f/2.8 ultra-wide-angle lenses, Tamron have tuned their VC (Vibration Compensation) system specifically for the zoom range of this lens to give excellent performance even with low light or for night scenes.

BBAR and eBAND lens Coatings

Tamron have paid particular attention to their BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) which has been refined further for this Ultra wide lens. Coupled with the eBAND coatings this results in crisper, crystal-clear images with ghosting and flare which are usually associated with ultra-wide-angle lenses being efficiently eliminated.

Water and Dirt repellent coating

The front element has been specially coated to repel water and dirt to keep it as clean as possible and make it easy to clean resulting in clearer sharper images even when in challenging environments.

Smooth background “bokeh”

The 9 blade curved aperture construction gives amazing smooth backgrounds within the out of focus areas of your image when using wider apertures due to its near circular form.

USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive) autofocus control

Tack sharp images with fast autofocus response and almost silent operation give great USD autofocus control to the photographer, together with Tamron’s Full Time Manual focusing operation allowing adjustment to focus manually without having to exit the AF mode.

Very interesting - looking forward to some reviews and comparisons against the 17-40 from canon.
Bold Claims on the site - "Superb corner-to-corner image quality from an ultra-wide-angle zoom

The new 15-30mm F/2.8 full-frame ultra-wide-angle zoom is a worthy addition to the Tamron SP (Super Performance) lens series, renowned for its highest standards. Thanks to the development of its unique XGM (eXpanded Glass Molded Aspherical) element, the high-performance zoom lens offers the same performance as would two fixed focal length lenses of 15mm and 30mm."
