Pros: Versatility, performance, construction, price

Cons: It takes a lot of imagination to find them

Opinion: Although I already knew the specifics regarding the dimensions, the first approach left me perplexed: heavy, huge, almost embarrassing. In reality, then, so much exuberance can almost become a source of pride, since mounting it on a Nikon D700 (other 1100g) is rather balanced and you quickly get used to it. Except for the zoom ring, a bit excessive in the effort necessary to maneuver it. I do not think it is due to my specimen in particular but to the important amount of glass that is put in motion in about 60 ^ of rotation. My disappointment is all here, for the rest it is a masterpiece. I read many reviews talk about flare in the G1 version. In this G2 it is extremely rare, not to say absent. As soon as I got it, I tested this lens under a nagging rain at the last carnival of Viareggio; A show not to be missed for those who do not know. A night street with contrasts and plays of light capable of breaking the ambitions of the best optics if not specifically designed for such situations. The seal is perfect and aberrations non-existent, at least on my 12Mp sensor. Performance that pushes to search for difficult subjects because they allow you to extract all the sense of three-dimensionality. Even bokeh is very effective, even if contained by short focal lengths. Probably the great resolution puts the paw on it. It is a blade also at full aperture and at all focal lengths, with a slight drop perceptible at the extremes of the range, a sign that the technicians have well optimized it by centering the performance. Fast and quiet focusing and stabilization. Very effective. It is rare to miss a photo, even in very difficult situations. With still subjects I was able to get perfectly sharp images up to 1/3 of a second freehand. I do not exclude being able to go beyond the shorter focal length. Very low distortion that probably goes to zero in the intermediate focal lengths. Unperceived vignetting, natural colors, legible shadows. Precise, solid construction, even with a plastic barrel, in metal would have been really unlikely. For amateur use, once you find the place in the backpack by removing on average 2 optics, it does not regret the performance of any of the many fixed focal lengths I tried, from Nikkor AFD 14 / 2.8 onwards, indeed, it outclasses them all. All those of the old generation at least. Obviously not for the qualities of compactness, which now take on an almost nostalgic meaning. Modern technology, which clearly makes the difference. In conclusion, it is an infallible perspective, with very high absolute performance and a paradoxical quality / price ratio, especially if taken used. Many are migrating to mirrorless, take advantage of it.

Pros: Sharpness even at the edges, autofocus, colors

Cons: Weight and bulk, but if you want quality you have to adapt

Opinion: Many do not say it but compared to the first version there have been great improvements, first of all the autofocus much faster and more precise, but the thing that I considered most important is the almost absence of flares manages the backlight much better. I also noticed that it greatly improves the yield and sharpness. Vignetting almost absent only in difficult situations of central light can be glimpsed slightly. when you use it gives the feeling of robustness and solidity, this lens found it complete, most likely among the best wide angles. I also tried the Nikon 14-24, I find this tamron 15-30 F/2.8 G2 even better than the Nikon and I told you everything. Rating 10/10.

Pros: Sharpness even at the edges, natural colors

Cons: no flaw, maybe weight.

Opinion: Very surprised by the sharpness of this lens, very clean in the backlight, vignette almost absent, bright and fast in focus. It is certainly heavy, but when you use it it gives the feeling of robustness and solidity, all things that make this lens complete throughout and, most likely, the best wide angle all do!

Pros: Fast and quiet autofocus, constant aperture 2.8, flares resistance, sharpness

Cons: Very expensive filters, footprint and weight

Opinion: Frankly, for what it costs is not rivals. If you then start to find a good used, the value for money assumes epic proportions. What I tried, Nikon attack, competes directly with the Sacred monster 14-24 f2.8. Tried both. The Tamron is a colder skin but distorts less. It is a more contrasting and less "Pastelloso" Pelino. On the opening of the shadows I have not caught big differences. The side coma is much more contained on the Tamron than the Nikon mom lens. At night, the Nikon is a little brighter than the Tamron, I would say almost 1/3 stop (which for astrophotography is not cheap). The ACE in the sleeve that, for someone could move the needle of the scale, is stabilization. With my hand (with hints of Parkinson's) I arrived to take perfectly sharp pictures at 1/8. With the Nikon is unthinkable. Therefore, in the street, no doubt the confrontation is inclement in favor of Tamarrozzo (for the form). Stabilization apart, none of the previous differences does not find solution in post production, so it remains to compare tastes and personal portfolios es imagine the main use. If you make Astro as if there were no tomorrow, go on the 14-24, otherwise with the savings you buy two lenses instead of one. I also think it appropriate to report a major shift focus on the Tamron. Once focused, changing focal, you need to focus again. On the Nikon zoom instead, everything works as expected.
