Product Description:

Tamron Di lenses are performance optimized for digital SLR cameras and usable with DSLRs featuring sensors commonly referred to as APS-C, measuring approximately 24mm x 16mm, as well as larger full frame (36mm x 24mm) sensors and 35mm film SLRs.

The Tamron SP designation is reserved for lenses developed with special emphasis on extraordinary photographic performance. Engineers are free to innovate in an uncommon atmosphere where optical performance comes before price, resulting in lenses that satisfy the demands of discerning photographers.

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.

Tamron has minimized 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's F/2.8 aperture enables a balance between brilliant resolution and beautiful soft blur effects. This ideal lens makes full use of Tamron's rounded diaphragm and the uncontrived, artistic blur that it provides. It is also Tamron's ?rst lens to feature our new moisture-resistant construction.

Pros: Excellent image quality - Focus is spot on. Images are sharp and clear. I am particularly impressed with the color and contrast from this lens. Image stabilization! - This is the real strong suit. I have useable images as slow as .5 seconds hand-held. The attached photo was taken this morning with this lens (.5 sec at f/5.6, ISO 1600, 24mm). Good balance – This is the perfect partner for my Canon 6D. Size and weight create a very balanced pair. Easily fits into my Vangard camera bag. Value - Tamron has really hit it out of the park with this lens. For the money, it is the best 24-70mm FF zoom available. Period.
Cons: Slow low-light focus - While shooting the sunrise this morning, it was pretty dark and the lens had trouble focusing. I use the center point almost exclusively so that really put the camera-lens system to the test. Not really a big deal, I just chose an area of good contrast and reframed. This shot would have lent itself to multi-point focusing but I didn't feel like fiddling with it in the dark (I'm very new to the 6D). Can't say whether it was a camera or lens issue but not really important. Small matter. Zoom twists the wrong way - Honestly, I just don't notice this enough to worry about it. I use Sigma and Canon glass on my 70D. I switch back and forth between bodies as conditions warrant. Yes, I ALWAYS try the Tamron in the wrong direction. Then I go in the right direction and get my shot without really thinking about it. Not really a problem for me but your mileage may vary.
Other Comments: I have had very good luck with factory refurbished lenses and equipment from Canon so I had no trepidation at all going that route with Tamron. Most factory reconditioned equipment was never really broken. Usually, someone just returns the gear after using it a few times. Regardless, the factory has to run it through a complete battery of tests to make sure it meets specifications. New items do not get this level of inspection - production runs are only spot checked for quality. For this reason I actually prefer factory reconditioned and will always choose them over new, all other factors being equal. Just buy it. If you're on the fence because you read some article that shows the Canon 24-70mm USM II-L being just a little sharper with a little less distortion at the edges then I suggest you look at the Tamron 24-70mm Flickr Group photos. Go to PixelPeeper and compare real-world pictures with both lenses on your camera model. You will thank yourself for saving an extra $1000-1500.
