“The Tamron SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD is distinguished by being the first fast standard zoom for full frame cameras to include optical image stabilization. The fact that it does so in a design that includes a ring-type ultrasonic motor for fast, silent autofocus and a degree of weather sealing…all at a significantly lower price than Canon’s non-stabilized EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM that was announced around the same time, might lead you to suspect there must be some serious compromise involved in its design. But there isn’t.”
