Get an Amazing Deal on the Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 DI VC USD Lens Today Only

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.

This lens has recently been updated but I can't say that I really notice a difference (aside from the look and build) between this and the new one. If you're looking for an affordable 24-70mm 2.8, this is your best option.

Amazon has it for the same price, in case anyone has Prime and the Prime credit card (which gives 5% back on all purchases on Amazon)

Actually, the newer Nikon 24-70 f/2.8 does have image stabilization.

I've been shooting with the Tamron for 3 years now and I highly recommend it. The newer version of Nikon comes with stabilization as well though

Ah yes, I worded that poorly. I meant the nearest in price doesn't include it. Thanks for pointing that out; I'll fix it.

Man I need to replace my mid-range lens, but I'm not buying a new Nikon lens till I see what the new Z-mount is about and the mirrorless system they have coming. I'll already need an adapter for my 70-200 if I end up going that route so a native optimized lens might be my 1st purchase if it's ready on release...And good.

If you compare the price, yes, it is cheaper than Canon and Nikon 24-70mm F/2.8, but to be honest, I have the same Lens, in build quality I`am very disappointment, also in focus, so many issue. But now, I will go always with the Cost, not the Price.
It is just my opinion!

Am I the only one who wished for the Tamron 28–75/2.8 to go G2 with some miracle glass hopefully polishing the corner sharpness, instead of the 24–70 behemoth?
