Tamron’s newly improved best-in-class, high-speed zoom lens
The 24-70mm G2 high-speed zoom is designed to maximize the potential of the latest high-pixel-density cameras while delivering best-in-class image quality with the use of new specialized, high quality glass materials that offer greater optical transmittance. Our proprietary eBAND Coating resists ghosting and flare, making this lens ideal for backlit photography. In addition to cutting-edge autofocus technology, the lens offers the highest vibration compensation in its class—with a CIPA image stabilization performance level of 5 stops. With Fluorine Coating and rugged, Moisture-Resistant Construction, the A032 is an excellent choice for outdoor photography. A built-in lock in the lens hood offers additional protection. The combination of advanced technology, versatility and superb image quality makes the easy-to-use 24-70mm G2 zoom an excellent choice for everything from landscapes and portraits.
See the world with new sharpness and clarity
The use of new specialized, high quality glass materials that offer greater optical transmittance are used in the new model 24-70mm G2 to ensure superior color reproduction and even greater sharpness. The 24-70mm G2 lens comprises 17 glass elements in 12 groups, including: 2 XR (Extra Refractive Index) glass elements to counteract optical aberrations; 3 LD (Low Dispersion) elements to minimize axial chromatic aberrations that can occur with telephoto, as well as transverse chromatic aberrations that can be an issue with wide-angle; 3 GM (glass-molded aspherical) elements; and 1 hybrid aspherical lens element that effectively neutralizes spherical aberrations and distortions to create superior image quality. Thanks to a combination of these special glass materials, the lens achieves previously unseen levels of accurate color reproduction and depictive performance.
eBAND Coating dramatically curbs ghosting and flare
The new 24-70mm G2 lens features Tamron’s original eBAND (Extended Bandwidth & Angular-Dependency) Coating, a technology that combines an extremely-low-refractive-index nano-structured layer with conventional multiple-layer coating techniques to provide superior anti-reflection performance. The optimal application of this eBAND Coating in combination with Tamron’s BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) Coating successfully and substantially curbs the ghosting and flare that can occur when photographing backlit subjects.
Equipped with the new dual MPU (micro-processing unit) control system
The 24-70mm G2 zoom features a new control system that uses a dual MPU (micro-processing unit) process. In addition to an MPU with built-in DSP (Digital Signal Processor) blocks for superior signal processing, Tamron has added an MPU dedicated solely to vibration compensation. The result is quicker, more precise AF performance and more consistently powerful VC (Vibration Compensation).
Dramatically improved autofocus accuracy and speed
The 24-70mm G2 is equipped with its own MPU (micro-processor unit), with embedded DSP (digital signal processing) blocks that enable high-speed digital signal processing, achieving both excellent responsiveness to signals from the camera and high-precision AF performance.
The highest vibration compensation (VC) levels in its class
The 24-70mm G2 zoom lens is equipped with Tamron’s original VC (Vibration Compensation) system. With the addition of an MPU specially dedicated to VC processing, the lens offers the highest vibration compensation available,*1 with CIPA image stabilization performance level of 5 stops. Now you can enjoy jitter-free handheld shooting and more flexibility—even in low light conditions.
