Pros: Blurred sharpness to onion

Cons: MAF not really a lightning, rubber ring

Opinion: I have used this optics in different services, the sharpness that pulls out is impressive as the Nikon, if not higher.. The stabilizer works well even if with quick shots it is better to put it on off, the tires of the ring nuts come off easily., take it into account the MAF is not lightning but it is quite fast then it depends on which machine you mount it.

Pros: Sharpness, AF, solidity, price, quality/price ratio, resistance to all weather conditions, stabilization

Cons: Hood, Nuts tires

Opinion: Now I use it for 5 years Best Buy in absolute is the only lens that I have not dared to change and sell, I was never disappointed in any condition he used (in the rain, under the snow, extreme temperatures both cold and hot) has never Missed a shot, only note that this summer in Sicily (after 5 years and temperatures of almost 35 ° C) after a day practically constantly under the sun the ring of MAF has slightly low but honestly can also stay. Af for me very fast never suffered from Front/back focus ever had to calibrate it and I used it pretty much as the only lens on D90 and on d610. Suffers a little bit of distortion at 24mm on FF but nothing so serious that you can not correct with a click in PP. In short, a really exceptional lens in relation to the price, so much so that now, I was so satisfied that I do not believe (after using it) is less in any way "to the original" Nikon 24/70 2.8. Also as a weight in relation to the latter I think is a feather considered the focal aperture. Yes the lens hood makes you laugh but despite all I found it solid I still have the original and it took a beating and falls but without ever making a fold. In short, how you could understand me the Straconsiglio.

Pros: Sharpness, stabilizer, fluency ring, solidity, zoom lock

Cons: Lens hood, 82mm filters, locknuts tires, Canon USM slower USD

Opinion: I purchased it after using for a year the Tamron of a friend of mine three years ago. Heavier than the Canon 24-105 that I used until recently, but it is a burden to which I am accustomed; Sharper already at 2.8 and with a better stabilizer. The AF ring is small but smooth, that zoom is harder, but in this way it makes the presence of the zoom block almost superfluous because the barrel does not go down with the lens downwards. As soon as you take it in your hand it gives you just the idea of solidity and good overall construction. The construction is however in two particular places: the AF and zoom rings that are consumed, discolour and quickly detach and the lens hood that is very light, fragile and small, is just a piece of plastic. Among the cons are the 82mm filters not so much for the magnitude itself but because it does not share the same diameter as the Tamron 70-200 2.8 of the same series. The autofocus is pretty fast, but not like the Canon USM, and it does fatigue when it lacks light.

Pros: Sharpness, construction, Autofocus

Cons: Maybe the weight, AF ring a little bit small

Opinion: I start the review by talking about the specs of this lens. 24-70 f 2.8. At first I had several doubts: there will have been a few 70mm ones on the long side? Would the 2.8 be enough to freeze the action? How useful would the stabilizer be? What portraits could have come out? After a little ' experience but I realized that a 24-70 f 2.8 allows you to really do everything, addiritutra with a thread of planning you can also do shots that could be done with fixed F2.. In short, a 24-70 is a lens that aspires to always be glued to the machine body. Could the Tamron Mark 1? The answer to all these questions is yes. First, the AF, to be a third party lens, at least in my specimen is very good and reliable. Then the sharpness is there and it is very good always. Maybe it's not a 50art, but still has a lot of it. Then if one is sick can try to pull out that fraction of roughness with a dash of sharpening. I haven't extensively tested the stabilizer, photographing people shooting often at less than 1/50. But to have it and know that it can give you 2.3, or 4 stops in the landscapes, however contributes to the judgement of lens in the round. Finally the construction is very solid. The only faults I have found are a little weight a high cicinino (which discourages to keep the reflex on the neck all day) and the ring nut for the full time manual focus a small thread and placed in the middle of the barrel, a position that requires a bit ' of habit. But the rest is a lot of stuff. A must for full frame

Pros: Construction, stabilization, overall performance

Cons: None, the tele side is slightly poor, filters 82 mm.

Opinion: Honest lens from the price contained in the used, offers so much yield at a price that is half the original Nikon 24-70 G. also offers stabilization. I can't complain about anything. With regard to surrender, compared to the Nkon d800 I realize that the tele side is qualitatively less performanant than the wide side. In essence it does well what you expect, without smeing. At 24 mm The distortion is visible but not excessive (the Nikon AFS 20 1.8 Despite being wider has less distortion-but it is a fixed, I know...). It offers saturated colors, maybe it is slightly warm in yield, I find the Greens a yellow thread and I find myself often change on LR the green slide when I click with this lens. My lens has no front/back focus problems, the AF is always very accurate fast enough for generic use. From 24 to 35 mm, comparing the yield with the Sigma 24-35 f\\2 Art which I also own, the Sigma is better in all, except for the distortion, visible on both at 24 mm. On the Nikon D800 F/11 is already excessive, at 100% there is a loss of sharpness in the finer details due to diffraction. I have not so far detected any particular problems of flare or ghosts with strong lights in the frame. Like all 24-70 f/2.8 It has on its side the versatility in the generic use, embellished in its case by the presence of the stabilization. It works well with Nikon flashes (used with sb700 and sb900) and therefore communicates smoothly with the Nikon CLS. It is a safe purchase with the only unknown common to all independent manufacturers: Future compatibility with Nikon\\canon camera bodies to come. In conclusion: I am very satisfied with the purchase and use that I make. I've never had the original Nikon 24-70 in any of its variants so I can't make comparisons but I don't feel the need to change the Tamron. When I need something more I know that I have to use a fixed. Recommended.
