The 24-70mm f/2.8 is one of the most versatile lenses a photographer can own, and today only, you can get $500 off Tamron's version, which also includes vibration compensation.
Neither Canon nor Nikon's 24-70mm f/2.8 closest comparable lenses include image stabilization (though Nikon's most expensive version does), which has made Tamron's version an enticing alternative for many photographers. The 24-70mm f/2.8 is really a bread-and-butter lens for a vast range of genres, particularly wedding and events shooters, as well as landscape photographers, portraitists, and more. Today only, B&H is offering $500 off the Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 DI VC USD, bringing the price to just $799, about $1,000 less than the Canon and Nikon versions with the added bonus of vibration compensation, or $1,600 less than the Nikon version with vibration reduction. One thing to note: this is the older version of the lens (as opposed to the 24-70mm f/2.8 G2), but it's still highly regarded, holding an average rating of 4.5 out 5 stars. It comes with the quiet USD motor (great for video shooters), three LD elements, three Glass-Molded Aspherical elements, one Hybrid Aspherical element and two Extra Refractive elements for reducing aberrations, a rounded nine-blade diaphragm for smoother bokeh, and moisture-resistant housing. And of course, the marquee feature is the vibration compensation, which allows you to shoot at slower shutter speeds. It also comes with a free UV filter. Get it here.
