Tamron claims that its new SP 15-30mm F2.8 Di VC USD offers prime lens quality across its focal length range, paired with a fast maximum aperture and - uniquely in its class - optical vibration compensation. We've been impressed by how this wideangle zoom performs in our studio, but that's only half the story. Our latest video field test follows DPReview Deputy / Technical Editor Rishi Sanyal as he uses the Tamron 15-30mm to shoot architecture, cityscapes and waterfalls.

Falls Creek Falls, Carson WA. Tamron 15-30mm F2.8 Di VC USD lens shot at 25mm focal length on a Nikon D810. Exposure info: 1/15s | F8 | ISO 64. Converted from Raw to taste. Additionally, 11 images were averaged in Photoshop to simulate a ~3/4s exposure, since a neutral density filter could not be used on this lens.
