    Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2 Announcement

      News

    Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2 is a successor of the SP 24-70mm f/2.8 DI VC USD model, presented in 2012, which for many years has been a great alternative to much more expensive lenses of producers such as Nikon and Canon.

    The optical system of new Tamron consists of 17 lenses placed in 12 groups. It includes 2 XR elements with high refractive index, 3 low-dispersion ones, 3 aspherical GM lenses and one hybrid apsheric lens. eBand Coating, the technology which improves anti-reflective effectiveness and working against the light, has also been used. The front lens is covered with fluroide layer, which makes it easier to remove dirt from its surface.

    Tamron SP 24-70 mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2 is equipped with dual MPU processor, which is responsible for the whole control system, including image stabilization and USD motor. Thanks to that, the autofocus should be much faster and more precise than in the older model. The minimum focus distance is supposed to be barely 15" (38cm).

      Today, Leica presented a new wide-angle lens with the equivalent of 27mm, developing a bit a humble, as for now, Leica TL system.

      Leica Elmarit-TL 18 mm f/2.8 APSH, as this is the full name of the new lens, is going to be the widest lens of the system. The lens will also be very compact – it has the dimensions of 21x62mm and it weighs 80g so it’s going to be a great companion in reportage photography.
       

      1). Leica Elmarit-TL 18mm f/2.8 APSH and Leica CL
       
      The optical system of the new lens has been built on the basis of 8 lenses placed in 6 groups, among which we have 4 aspheric lenses, which are to guarantee good resolution, both in the centre and on the edges of the frame. The lens will enable focus adjustment from the distance of 30cm from the photographed object. Electronic aperture can be closed up to f/16.
       

      2). Leica TL Lens Family

      The lens is going to be available on the market at the end of November and it’s going to cost $1300.
