Tamron SP 15-30mm f/2.8 Di VC USD Review


Tamron SP 15 30mm F 2 8 DI VC USD Lens (9)

This ultra-wide angle lens from Tamron sports a fast constant aperture of f/2.8 and as it is one of Tamron's 'SP' lenses, it sports rugged build quality and a dust and weather sealed construction. Unusually for a lens in this range, this optic has Vibration Compensation, which should help to tame camera shake at low shutter speeds. An ultrasonic focusing motor should provide quick focusing speeds, silently with full-time manual focus override.

This lens is available in Canon and Nikon mounts. Later on it will also be available for Sony too. The Sony compatible model will lack Vibration compensation, as this functionality is already built into Sony DSLR and SLT bodies. As this lens is a 'Di' optic, it is compatible with both full frame and crop sensor camera bodies.
