Tamron SP AF 17-50mm F/2.8 XR Di II VC LD Aspherical [IF] lens construction

Overview

Description by Tamron:

This lens covers the extremely popular 17-50mm focal length range (equivalent to 26-78mm in the full-frame 35mm format*) making it extremely versatile. It delivers impressive sharpness and striking contrast over its entire range of focal lengths and apertures.
this lens delivers a fast f/2.8 aperture over its entire range of focal lengths for maximum creative flexibility. At its maximum aperture of f/2.8 it produces beautiful images enhanced by shallow depth of field and excellent bokeh (i.e. smooth, natural transitions in the out-of-focus areas of the image).


Equipped with Tamron's state-of-the-art, tri-axial Vibration Compensation (VC) image stabilisation mechanism, which controls the effects of camera shake, this lens provides more opportunities for sharp handheld photography at the slow shutter speeds needed when shooting in low-light conditions (e.g. night or indoor scenes), dramatically enhancing the user’s level of photographic freedom.
Three compound aspheric elements, special LD glass, and BBAR coatings ensure superb correction, colour fidelity, and freedom from flare. A minimum focus distance of 0.29m (11.4 inches) offers exciting close-up opportunities.

 

Reviews

"For a lens with a constant aperture of f/2.8, the Tamron 17-50mm is quite compact and lightweight, especially when compared to manufacturer's own offerings. To accommodate the VC system, this lens is a little larger and heavier than the non-stabilised version, but not by much. High quality plastics are used for much of the lens barrel construction, which helps keep the weight down.

Focusing is powered by a built-in motor, which makes no claims to be a silent one. Despite this the focus
