24-70: Sheffield Botanic Gardens

I’m very much making the most of the clement weather this week, and took myself off to the Steel City’s softer side today. The clouds were the perfect counterpoint to the vibrant colour of the early flowers.

The images I’ve picked today summarise the finer optical qualities of the Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD.

Excellent short range capabilities


Pleasing bokeh, even when stopped down


An image stabiliser that allows you to use slow shutter speeds hand-held for creative effect


Pin sharp detail, corner to corner, and excellent contrast reproduction.
