Details from Tamron USA about this lens:

Setting high-performance DSLRs free with SP engineering, strengthened by F/2.8 maximum aperture advantages and Tamron VC.

The compositional options afforded by the SP 17-50mm F/2.8 Di-II VC’s wide-to-moderate-telephoto zoom characteristics are prized by experienced photographers, rendering a picture angle range approximating a 26-78mm lens on a full frame DSLR or a 35mm SLR. A fast and constant F/2.8 maximum aperture allows cluttered backgrounds to be softly obscured, additional freedom in low-light conditions and added viewfinder brightness. State-of-the art properties, including XR (Extra Refractive Index) and LD (Low Dispersion) glass in an optical formula employing 19 elements and 14 groups—assures sharpness, optimal contrast and breathtaking image fidelity. Its form factor and handling characteristics can be traced to the use of aspherical element design and internal focus. Tamron’s proprietary tri-axial VC (Vibration Compensation) image stabilization adds to image sharpness and further expands low-light shooting freedom by combating image blur resulting from camera shake. Tri-axial VC addresses the adverse effects of camera shake in three planes making it possible to shoot handheld at as many as four shutter speeds slower than would otherwise be possible.

The Tamron SP designation is reserved for lenses developed with special emphasis on extraordinary photographic performance. Engineers are free to innovate in an uncommon atmosphere where optical performance comes before price, resulting in lenses that satisfy the demands of discerning photographers.

 


Here are a few images taken with this lens:

The results of the Vibration Compensation (Image Stabilization) are amazing in these Tamron lenses.  Check this example out!

    How would this lens benefit your photography?
    I am just beginning my career in Photography and right now while I am establishing myself I either have to rent equipment or work with what I’ve got (which is limited). This lens would greatly benefit me because it would offer me a lot of different perspectives and clear, crisp, creamy textures!

    What is your favorite focal length to shoot? 50mm is my favourite 🙂

    I only have one lens, I have a canon camera. My camera is like my purse, I take it everywhere. I LOVE pictures ! I would enjoy have different lens to choose from. I enjoy sports shots, landscape, and potraits. I like to see life though pictures ( I captured a small boy holding his great great grandparents photo at a memorial service this weekend for the great great grandfather. The small boy will only know them by their pictures.). I would like to preserve special moments in life and this lens would help me. :O)

    How would this lens benefit your photography?
    This lens would benefit me because I would be able to shoot a wider group in a small area. I also am starting to do more portrait shoots and only have the 18-270 so the F stop is much better on this lens than the one I currently own. 🙂 My hubby is unemployed and so am I and I have just started doing photography in a more professional manner so more lenses would make my work a lot more versatile 🙂

    What is your favorite focal length to shoot?

    I think that 35-55mm is my favorite length to shoot at. Although I only have the 18-270 lens so I cant really pick an exact favorite. 🙂

    1) This lens would benefit the quality of my photography, taking it to the next level will bring confidence in my shooting and I would love to be able to do weddings 🙂 I would also like to give my clients an even better product.

    2) My favorite focal length is 50mm because it’s so clear. The clarity is unbeatable and with a 2.8 it would be amazing!

    Thanks for this opportunity!

    I would love this lens for my close up photography. I am going on a vacation to costa rica and I would love to be able to bring this lens along with me.

    I mostly use my tamron 18-270mm for everyday use.

    1. How would this lens benefit your photography?

    Right now I only have a kit lens, and it is frustrating me a lot. I would really like to get the tamron lens because of the nice bokeh.

    2. What is your favorite focal length to shoot?

    Most of the images I take are around the 40mm range.

    1.How would this lens benefit your photography?
    This awesome lens would benefit my photography as I have recently completed a photography course & would love to start a photography business, although I only have 3 lenses for my canon 550D. I have decided that I love taking photo’s of children & families (portrait shoots) & this lens would be perfect for that!

    .What is your favorite focal length to shoot?
    My absolute favorite focal length is the 50mm, the photo’s are amazing when I shoot with the 50mm, so crisp & sharp.

    1. This lens would be awesome for me because I have no wide angle lenses. I Love landscape photography as well as portrait and this would really take my photographs to the next level.
    2. I don’t have a favorite focal length.. I LOVE THEM ALL! So it really depends on the subject.

  9. June 4, 2015 at 2:58 am —

    1. It will replace my 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 (the only ones that I have … 🙁 ). With that 2.8 I could do beter portraits to my kids
    2. Now I take everything I can from this lens that I own: shout 55 for portraits and 18 for the rest of pictures…
    3. I like your FB page from a long time http://i.imgur.com/oFacNBw.jpg

    1. My portraits and landscape photography with new Tamron would become more colourful and attracting. Image stabilizer will allow me to shoot the motion and enjoy every minute spent with my digital Canon camera.
    2. 50 mm is great for portraits. For shooting landscape and nature, I like having broader wide angle, 17 mm is sufficient option.
    3. I follow and looking for interesting news and content.

    1. This lens would benefit me because I don’t have anything smaller than a 50mm
    2. Favorite focal length is 50mm because it’s all I have! I’d love a wider lens to shoot landscapes though
    3. I like MCP on Facebook!
