Tamron 24-70mm 2.8 VC problems, return or exchange or warranty?
Mar 4, 2013

I just got one Friday, while testing it on the weekend I checked and it looks like I have the problem where 2.8 to 4.0 the exposure doesn't change in addition to auto focus being way off. Did a quick adjustment at +7 at 70mm made it better but it was way off all over.

What are the chances if I exchange it, the new one will not have the same problem?

Not sure if I should just return it, or risk a exchange or send it off for warranty and hope everything gets sorted out.

Its a nice lens, not sure how common the problem is but I've seen the other threads with people having it and some DIY fixing info which I will not do and don't feel I should have to do on a new lens.

Got it online so either way I'm shipping it somewhere.
