    Re: What do you guys think of Tamron 24-70mm G2 lens?

    I agree, unless you really need f/2.8, get the kit lens if using the Z7 because that little lens is spectacular corner to corner. I got to use one for a week and that lens impressed me as the sharpest least distortion zoom I have ever seen. If you want 2.8 for narrow depth of field there are cheaper better primes. If using the Z cameras Tamrons will not even work on them until Tamron updates their firmware

    I hope to try that within a month.
    I have 2 Tamron lenses, 24-70 F2.8 G2 and 28-300 PZD VC, from Sigma I enjoy the 150-600 Contemporary.
    The G2 lenses can be updated through Tamrons Tap-In console as soon as they become available.
    As soon as possible, I'm hoping to rent a Z7 for a week or so.
    That's a better option than buying... for the moment... my wife is still not amused, I bought the D850 one year ago...
    My nicest combo...:

    With AF-D 24 mm F2.8... not the sharpest lens, but beautiful retro look, little, light and not expensive.

    Tamron is surely making compatibility with the Z a high priority, the Z6 is going to be a sales winner, great price point.

    Of course, when buying a new camera you tell her "WE need this camera because it is needed to capture your beauty in the way it deserves"...... so something to that effect.
    Remember..."We need this camera.."

    Repeat in front of a mirror until it sounds convincing...delivered with her favorite flowers

    I have both the Tamron 24-70 G2 and the 70-200 G2 and use them both on my D7200. I've gotten to use both side by side against their Nikon counterparts and IMO they're delivering 90% of the image quality at half the price.

    The few "issues" I have with them are minor. I wish the 24-70 had a panning-stabilization mode like the 70-200. And I wish the 70-200's mode switches were less prominent; currently with a sling strap the switches get changed by rubbing back and forth on clothing. I also think the 24-70's VR isn't quite as aggressive as the 70-200. Now, it could be that it's just easier see it doing it's job when you're zoomed out further.

    Anyway, I'm VERY pleased with my purchase of both of the Tamron lenses and whole-heartedly recommend them!

    What is the focus speed of the 24-70 G2 like? Say, on a D3 or D4, and for indoor court sports? Definitely interested in this lens. The situation I'm typically in is, I'm shooting one subject but then have to wheel around and shoot someone at a different distance, and I need the lens to focus ASAP. Nikon's 70-200 VR II is excellent in terms of AF speed. The 200-500 is too slow in terms of AF speed.

    I'd mention one other thing for anyone considering this lens. It's an 82mm front filter thread. So is Nikon's new 24-70. That's annoying. I don't have any other lenses in 82mm, so no 82mm filters. I have everything in 77mm.

    Re: What do you guys think of Tamron 24-70mm G2 lens?

    Thank you everyone for ur inputs. I’m happy to tell that I now have Tamron 24-70 f2.8 on my camera. B&H had $100 off with free tap in console and another $200 off coupon code. With $300 off decided to buy it. It sucks now to be paying taxes on B&H living in WA though.

    Gear is useless and I hope to learn and grow my photography vision and skills.

    Thank you again.
