  • Tamron SP AF 17-50mm F/2.8 XR Di II LD ASPH (IF) Lens Review
    tested in this review was designed for Canon EF S mount but Tamron manufactures Nikon and Sony variants Summary Lens Composition 13 elements in 16 groups Angular Field 78 31 degrees Minimum Focus 27cm 10 6in Focusing Action AF MF f stop Scale f 2 8 f 32 camera controlled Filter Size 67mm Lens Hood Petal shaped included Weight 430g 15 2oz Dimensions 74x81mm 2 9x3 2 Lens Case None Field Tests The lens showcased pretty good performance in the field with decent image quality at wide aperture settings and outstanding results in middle of the tested aperture range The lens was at its best at the ends of the zoom range with results in the center being somewhat less consistent The lens felt comfortable to handle thanks to the wide rubberized zoom ring I would not recommend holding the lens around the focus ring though Tamron did not decouple it from the AF system so the ring rotates during focusing One disappointment is the AF system While reasonably accurate it is quite noisy and pretty slow I also discovered that AF tends to hunt pretty much in all lightning conditions which adds to my overall disappointment with the AF system on this lens As mentioned above the overall build quality leaves room for improvement this becomes especially noticeable when the plastic filter ring attached to the front side of the inner cam starts to wobble during zooming making a rather unpleasant scratchy sounds Don t know if this is going to be a common problem for all samples of this lens though Vignetting f 2 8 1 6x crop 17mm vs 50mm The lens showed very mild vignetting on an APS C camera at the widest aperture level which pretty much disappears by f 4 To my surprise and satisfaction the color reproduction was quite good with excellent contrast throughout the zoom range and no major color fringing in the center and light fringing around borders at the wide end of the zoom range At 17mm the lens showed slight barrel distortion which is noticeable even to a naked eye but things improve towards longer zoom range and by 24mm distortion disappears ISO 100 1 1250 f 2 8 17mm Tamron SP AF 17 50mm f 2 8 XR Di II LD ASPH image gallery Lab Tests Please note that MTF50 results for APS C and Full Frame cameras are not cross comparable despite the same normalized 0 1 range used to report results for both types of cameras Canon APS C Performance was all over the map with no particular trend noticeable across the zoom range or the tested aperture range Center performance remains pretty solid from f 4 through f 11 throughout the the zoom range however border quality is somewhat sporadic 17mm seems to be the lens Achilles hill both center as well as border performance at 17mm is rather mediocre throughout the zoom The lens achieves its best overall performance around f 5 6 Here

  • Tamron SP AF 28-75mm F/2.8 XR Di LD ASPH (IF) Lens Review
    sharpness across the entire frame and throughout the zoom Thanks to its relatively light weight Tamron 28 75mm f 2 8 was quite easy to handle keep your hands off the focus ring when using the lens in AF mode Tamron did not decouple the focus ring from AF so it rotates when camera tries to auto focus the lens My biggest complain about the lens is its build quality the lens just feels too flimsy with too much plastic and constant wobbling of the front lens element The noisy and slow AF adds to that feeling of dissatisfaction Vignetting f 2 8 full frame vs 1 6x crop 28mm Vignetting f 2 8 full frame vs 1 6x crop 75mm The lens produced noticeable vignetting on a full frame Canon 5D at its widest aperture throughout the zoom range While vignetting on the wider end of the zoom is understandable the fact that the lens still produces vignetting at 75mm is somewhat disappointing Fortunately once you stop down to f 4 vignetting is pretty much gone And on APS C body the lens showed practically no vignetting throughout the zoom range even at the widest aperture settings The lens did not show any visible distortion but fell prone to flare predominantly at the wider side of the zoom range and its widest aperture of f 2 8 Color fringing was basically non existent throughout the frame ISO 100 1 1250 f 2 8 28mm Tamron SP AF 28 75mm f 2 8 XR Di LD ASPH image gallery Lab Tests Please note that MTF50 results for APS C and Full Frame cameras as well as cameras from different manufacturers are not cross comparable despite the same normalized 0 1 range used to report results for all types of cameras Canon APS C Tamron 28 75mm f 2 8 showcased quite impressive results in the lab Center performance was top notch throughout the zoom range and throughout the tested aperture settings Here the lens performance rivals that of even most fixed focal lenses Border quality was pretty solid in most situations as well with the exception of f 2 8 where the lens is somewhat softer border performance is outstanding Overall performance throughout the zoom range peaks around f 8 The lens also shows the most balanced results at f 8 The peak performance will get you outstanding 19in and 16in prints in the 28 50mm and 75mm ranges respectively Conclusion This lens delivered one of the biggest surprises when it comes down to resolving power Who knew that behind a somewhat cheesy plastic shell you can find such a good performer MTF50 Line Width Inch on the Print 28mm Normalized raw MTF50 28mm MTF50 Line Width Inch on the Print 35mm Normalized raw MTF50 35mm MTF50 Line Width Inch on the Print 50mm Normalized raw MTF50 50mm MTF50 Line Width Inch on the Print 75mm Normalized raw MTF50 75mm On an APS C body the lens produced low to
