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 on the Tamron SP 24-70mm F2.8 Di VC USD G2

Features and Functions of the Tamron SP 24-70mm F2.8 Di VC USD G2
All-new control system delivers greater speed and precision
The Tamron SP 24-70mm F2.8 Di VC USD G2 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.
eBAND Coating reduces ghosting and flare
The Tamron SP 24-70mm F2.8 Di VC USD G2 features Tamron’s proprietary eBAND(Extended Bandwidth & Angular-Dependency) Coating and BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) Coating, to combat ghosting and flare. A nano-structured layer and conventional multiple-layer coatings deliver superior anti-reflection properties.
Keep your lens in line with a built-in lock
The lens hood is equipped with a locking mechanism, which prevents detachment due to unintentional contact during use.
Compatible with the TAMRON TAP-in Console
The optional TAP-in Console provides a USB connection to your personal computer, enabling you to easily update your lens’s firmware as well as customize features including fine adjustments to the AF and VC.
Additional product features
VC (Vibration Compensation)
The VC Image Stabilizer delivers sharp and shake-free images, as well as a smooth viewfinder image.
USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive)
Powerful ultrasonic motor for quick and dynamic subjects. It is extremely quiet, precise and allows manual control at any time.
Nano-structured lens coating to protect against unwanted reflection and ghosting.
Zoom Lock (ZL) Mechanism
Protects against undesired extension of the lens barrel.
The extension length of the lens does not change during focussing and the close focussing distance is significantly reduced across the entire focusing range.
Tamron’s Super Performance series delivers a range of lenses that meet the highest standards.
LD (Low Dispersion)
Lens element for greater image sharpness and the correction of chromatic aberration.
XR (Extra Refractive Index) Glass
A special glass with a particularly high refractive index for greater performance and a compact lens design.
