The 24-70 range itself is known as the workhorse of all photographers and videographers. For Nikon shooters, the two choices for this range would be either the Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G ED (2007) and Tamron’s new SP 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD.

What you normally see with third party manufactures is that they copy features from the original manufacturer’s lens and of course, sell it at a cheaper price. Tamron has changed the game by adding image stabilization, a very valuable feature that may set it above its Nikon competitor for most.  Even more attractive is the price that is comes at, which is 30% cheaper than the Nikon lens. The Nikon comes in at $1887 and the Tamron is $1250. In terms of focusing distance they’re the same coming in at 1.2 ft (0.38m).
We did a quick test to see how the two performed.
Overall they’re both sharp, only the Tamron has IS. For those on a budget, the Tamron is the better option. You would be saving around $600, which could go towards another lens. You can check these our by clicking here.
