Newly improved best-in-class, high-speed zoom lens.
The new Tamron SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD G2 (Model A032) is the perfect high-speed zoom lens for the latest high-pixel-density cameras. With generous use of special glass materials, the best-in-class A032 offers unprecedented colour reproduction and superb definition.
All-new control system delivers greater speed and precision.
The A032 is equipped with its own MPU (micro-processor unit), with embedded DSP (digital signal processing) blocks that enable high-speed digital signal processing, achieving both excellent responsiveness to signals from the camera and high-precision AF performance.
This sophisticated design delivers superb performance and ultra-high image quality The use of specialized, high quality glass materials assures accurate color reproduction and superior sharpness, perfect for today’s high-pixel-density cameras. Optical construction (17 elements in 12 groups) uses 2 XR (Extra Refractive Index) elements, 3 LD (Low Dispersion) elements, 3 GM (Glass-Molded aspherical) and one hybrid aspherical lens element. Together they minimize axial chromatic aberrations, transverse chromatic aberrations, spherical aberrations and distortion, and allow a compact design that achieves superior image quality.
The eBAND Coating provides superior anti-reflection properties, and reduces ghosting and flare The new A032 features Tamron’s original eBAND (Extended Bandwidth & Angular-Dependency) Coating, a technology combining a nano-structured layer that has an extremely low refractive index with conventional multiple-layer coatings to provide superior anti-reflection performance. The optimal application of this eBAND Coating in combination with Tamron’s BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) Coating successfully and substantially curbs the ghosting and flare that can occur when photographing backlit subjects.
New Dual MPU (Micro-Processing Unit) control system*3 provides faster and more precise autofocus and improved Vibration Compensation The innovative control system uses a Dual MPU design with enhanced computing capacity. The MPUs have powerful, built-in DSP (Digital Signal Processor) blocks that achieve quicker and more precise AF performance, and more consistently powerful Vibration Compensation. The features combine to provide outstanding performance at night and in low light.
High performance MPU for AF dramatically improves autofocusing accuracy and speed The A032 is equipped with its own MPU (micro-processor unit), with embedded DSP (Digital Signal Processor) blocks that enable high-speed digital signal processing, achieving both excellent responsiveness to signals from the camera and high-precision AF performance.
Dedicated MPU delivers the highest vibration compensation ability in class*2 (CIPA level of 5 stops*1). The new A032 is equipped with Tamron’s proprietary VC (Vibration Compensation) system. Adding an MPU dedicated to VC processing unleashes a new-generation algorithm, ensuring the highest vibration compensation ability*2 in the class (CIPA level of 5 stops*1). Even in low light or with slow shutter speeds, photographers can enjoy shake-free handheld shooting with ease and comfort.
Fluorine Coating and Moisture-Resistant Construction The Fluorine Coating applied on the front element surface is water-and oil-repellant and allows safe and easy removal of fingerprints, dirt and smudges. The coating also provides an enhanced level of durability, and will sustain its effectiveness for years. In addition, seals are located at the lens mount area and other critical locations to prevent infiltration of moisture and/or rain drops to provide Moisture-Resistant Construction. This feature provides an additional layer of protection when shooting outdoors under adverse weather condition.
Lens hood equipped with new, convenient locking mechanism The lens hood is equipped with a locking mechanism, which prevents detachment due to unintentional contact during use.
Compatible with TAMRON TAP-in ConsoleTM, an optional accessory The new A032 is compatible with the optional TAMRON TAP-in ConsoleTM, an optional accessory product that provides a USB connection to a personal computer, enabling users to easily update a lens’s firmware as well as customize features including fine adjustments to the AF and VC.
