Tamron unveils next-gen 15-30mm F2.8 lens for Canon and Nikon full-frame
Tamron has unveiled a new version of its SP 15-30mm F2.8 Di VC USD lens. The second-generation ultra-wide-angle zoom, which will come in mounts for Nikon and Canon full-frame cameras, is claimed to offer better edge-to-edge sharpness, faster and quieter autofocus, and an improved Vibration Correction system delivering up to 4.5 stops of stabilisation.
The SP 15-30mm F2.8 Di VC USD G2 is now the fourth Tamron’s zoom lens to carry the G2 (Generation 2) moniker, joining the SP 24-70mm F2.8 Di VC USD G2, SP 70-200mm F2.8 Di VC USD G2, SP 150-600mm F5-6.3 Di VC USD G2.
The Nikon-mount version of the lens (Nikon F, FX) will be available in the US on 21 September while the Canon version (Canon EF) will be available on 21 October. Australian pricing and release dates have not yet been confirmed but in the US both versions of the lens will carry a suggested retail price of US$1299 (AUD$1850).
