Party Shots – Tamron SP AF17–50mm f/2.8 XR Di II VC Lens


With its fast f/2.8 aperture, perfect for low and natural light shooting, you’ll capture all the party happenings with this lens. And you can shoot handheld without worrying about the effects from camera shake. Plus, this wide-to-moderate tele zoom delivers impressive sharpness and striking contrast, unlike your phone’s camera.

The Tamron SP designation is reserved for lenses developed with special emphasis on extraordinary photographic performance. And this high-speed telephoto zoom, designed for digital SLR cameras with smaller sensors, covers the very popular 17–50mm focal length range. This makes the lens extremely versatile—and easy for you to capture party shots in a variety of scenes and conditions! In addition, since it includes Tamron’s Vibration Compensation (VC) system, the lens is a great performer in low-light scenarios.

Made with state-of-the-art optical glass, the lens gives you remarkable crispness and contrast over its entire focal length and aperture range, so you’ll capture the perfect party shots. Plus, its maximum aperture of f/2.8 delivers images enhanced by shallow depth of field for smooth, natural transitions in out-of-focus areas of the image. The result: you’ll take people pictures like the pros, with sharp subjects against artistically blurred backgrounds. MSRP: $649.
