    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).

      Leica DG Elmarit 200mm f/2.8 Power O.I.S shows perfectly the greatest advantage of using the Micro Four Thirds system, offering the equivalent of 400mm for full frame and the light of f/2.8. Its dimensions are merely 174x87mm and it weighs 1245g. In comparison, Nikon 400mm f/2.8 weighs 134oz. (3.8kg) and it has the dimensions of 6.3in. (159.5mm)x14.09in. (358mm). These figures speak for themselves…

      The optical system of the new Leica consists of 15 elements placed in 13 groups, among which we have two low-dispersion lenses, which are to perfectly deal with chromatic aberration. But the most impressive property is the minimum focus distance which is only 1.15m. This will make it possible to use the lens in taking photographs which would be impossible to take with the use of ordinary 400’s. The 9-blade aperture can be closed up to f/22.

      Apart from that, the new lens is equipped with the POWER O.I.S optical stabilization system and sealings, which should protect the lens from dust and splashes. We also shouldn’t forget about the 1.4x teleconverter added to the set, which is supposed to change the lens into a telephoto lens with the equivalent of 560mm. Filters with the diameter of 77mm can be used on the front lens.

      The crucial parts of new Tamron 100-400 mm F/4.5-6.3 Di VC USD are made of magnesium, which is to positively influence its resistance and weight. The lens is also ultra-light, taking into consideration its performance - it weighs only 1.115 g.
       
      New Tamron is fully sealed and the front lens is fully covered with fluorine coating, which is to hinder dirt and dust adhesion. Apart from that, the lens is equipped with a removable tripod mount, which is compatible with Arca Swiss.
       
      As for now, this is all information that the producer has shared with us. Tamron 100-400 mm F/4.5-6.3 Di VC USD should appear on sale at the end of the year in the versions for Nikon and Canon systems. We don't know its price yet.
