TAMRON SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD A007
A constant-aperture high-speed standard zoom lens with image stabilisation. Photographic artists have been waiting for a full-featured, constant-aperture zoom lens. The wait is over.
The A007 is a high-quality, highly functional, high-speed standard zoom lens covering the 24‒70mm focal range. It includes both Tamron's proprietary VC (Vibration Compensation) image stabilisation to reduce shake and its USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive) motor, enabling speedy, silent autofocusing.
This SP (Super Performance) series lens makes full use of specialised glass elements in its lens layout, designed with top priority on image quality, including three LD (Low Dispersion) elements and two XR (Extra Refractive Index) glasses. Tamron has minimised all types of chromatic aberration in the A007, making it a lens at the top of its class whether you use it on a digital APS-C, full-frame, or 35mm SLR camera.
The A007 combines a constant f/2.8 maximum aperture and Tamron's rounded diaphragm* for an ideal character of brilliant resolution and beautifully soft, natural-looking blur effects.
VC (Vibration Compensation)
Even when shooting in low-light conditions with a slow shutter speed, Tamron's acclaimed VC (Vibration Compensation)* allows for stable handheld camera work, to enchance the usefulness of a fast-aperture zoom lens.
* The Sony mount lens does not include VC, because the body of Sony digital SLR cameras includes image stabilisation functionality. The product name for Sony cameras is "SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di USD" without the VC designation.
Advanced optical technology
Specialised high-grade glass in the three LD elements, three Glass Molded Aspherical Lenses, one Hybrid Aspherical Lens and two XR (Extra Refractive Index) elements all contribute to the top-of-class image quality expected of a high-grade Tamron SP lens.
The rounded outline diaphragm of the lens is retained even when stopped down to f/5.6. Blur highlights in a photo reflect the shape of the aperture, and they are a much more prominent feature at wider apertures. In this high-speed lens, this important optical design element results in more attractive, natural-looking images.
It is also Tamron's first lens to feature our new moisture-resistant construction, making it an ideal choice for outdoor shooting. Portraits. Landscapes. Studio shoots. This is the lens for them all.
