Review summary from DPReview
The Tamron SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD is the first fast standard zoom for full frame cameras to feature optical image stabilization. Its combination of impressive optics, effective autofocus and image stabilization systems, and drip-proof construction makes it a compelling alternative to the much more expensive offerings from Canon, Nikon and Sony.
Scoring is relative only to the other products in the same category.

Now comes this Tamron SP 24-70mm Di VC USD lens (available for Canon, Nikon and Sony mounts), already shipping in late April 2012 for $1000 less than the upcoming Canon non-IS version. Tamron is really stealing Canon's thunder with this lens! The VC stands for Vibration Compensation, Tamron's version of image stabilization. I was able to pick up a copy the first week it was out, and after running it through its paces with the amazing 5D Mark III, I have to say I am VERY happy with it.
Right off the bat everyone's main concern is going to be the sharpness vs. the grand old Canon "L" version. Put those concerns aside, this lens has excellent sharpness at most focal lengths wide open, with just a bit of softness and light falloff in the corners. Stop it down just one stop to f/4 and sharpness / contrast improves quite nicely in the corners, with superb image quality across the whole frame from f/5.6 through f/11. I said "most" focal lengths because this lens excels at the wide-to-normal range, performing the best from 24mm through about 50mm (35mm is outstanding).Read more ›
It's not the perfect lens though (I dont believe one exists!), it is the jack of all trades. VC is extremely competent, probably the best in the business. AF is not L fast, but fast enough that I dont miss shots, and even AI Servo works fine. The build quality is on par with the 24-105mm, very very solidly built. The bokeh does have issues(onion and a tad bit busy), but I've found them to be very minor with real world shots, and very easy to clean up. The color rendition is L level. Vignetting is kind of odd on this lens. The drop off is less overall than the mark 1, but where it actually vignettes, it's more pronounced. F2.8 is very sharp, from corner to corner, I have no hesitation shooting it wide open. There was no way I could get the canon 24-70mm Mark 1 to be as sharp as the tamron at F2.8. I was very suprised by that finding, but it is what it is.
In the end, it came down to a hard decision. Having a Canon L series lens is very comforting. You know that you've got the best tool made by the manufacturer. It had better bokeh, but was less sharp. It was built like a brick, and weighed like one too....Read more ›
The camera use to review this Tamron lens is Canon 5D Mark II (full frame). The big plus for this lens vs. Canon 24-70 Mki and Canon 24-105 f4/L are;
1. Tamron is fast lens at f2.8
2. Vibration compensation is seamless and unnoticeable.
3. Quite ultrasonic focusing. Its fast.
4. Sharp in the center wide open and sharp corner to corner stopping down to f4.
5. Bokeh is pleasant. Do not be fool with the onion ring bokeh. I did not see it in my indoor shots at 100% magnifications.
6. Color saturation equal to Canon lens or even better in some shots I took.
7. Close up shots is sharp in center with blurry background. Taken wide open. Beautiful dreamy effect.
8. The MOST important advantage of this lens is the PRICE. High for Tamron lens but way better price point than Canon L lens.
The minus for this lens;
1. The zoom ring is tight hope this will break in after several use.
2. The filter size is huge 82mm. This is the same size filter with my Canon 16-35 2.8L. So not bad if you already have extra filters
Well folks hope this review help. So keep on shooting beautiful pictures out there.
