Tamron SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD Photographic artists have been waiting for a full-featured, constant-aperture zoom lens. The wait is over. The Tamron SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD is a high-quality, highly functional, high-speed standard zoom lens covering the 24‒70mm focal range.
It includes both Tamron's proprietary VC (Vibration Compensation)* image stabilisation to reduce shake and a USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive) motor, enabling speedy, silent autofocusing. This SP (Super Performance) series lens makes full use of specialised glass elements in its lens layout, designed with top priority on image quality, including three LD (Low Dispersion) elements and two XR (Extra Refractive Index) glasses.
Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 Di VC USD The Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 Di VC USD is a feature-packed telephoto zoom lens designed to capture high quality photographs across a variety of situations.
With a fast f/2.8 aperture across the entire focal range and a built-in Vibration Compensation (VC) image stabilization system, this lens can capture blur free, fast-moving action without needing to compromise on shutter speed.
For portrait photography, the large aperture combined with an internal 9 blade rounded diaphragm produces a beautifully soft, out of focus background allowing the subject in your photo to really stand out.
The high quality construction of this lens includes an exceptional Extra Low Dispersion (XLD) glass element and four additional Low Dispersion (LD) elements. These components combine to minimise colour and chromatic aberrations as well as increase the depth and contrast of your images.
If you are looking for a telephoto zoom lens that delivers vibrant, sharp, professional standard photos, theTamron 70-200mm f/2.8 Di VC USD makes a compelling case.

The Sony mount does not include VC, because the body of Sony digital SLR cameras includes image stabilisation functionality. The product name for Sony cameras is "SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di USD" without the VC designation.
Nikon mount version is designated as 'N' meaning it has an internal AF motor as a standard feature, thus it is compatible with Nikon bodies that do not have a built-in focusing motor.
