Compability, auto focus and focal length
The lens is available for both Canon and Nikon cameras, but there are two different versions of this lens (one for each brand and mount) so it is important that you ask for and choose the right version when bying the lens.
This lens is constructed to fit all models of Canon and Nikon cameras, regardless of camera model or type of sensor.
Here it is the only Canon version of the lens that has a built-in auto focus (AF) motor. The possibility to use auto focus (AF) is available for Nikon cameras but only if the camera itself has a built-in auto focus (AF) motor. Some cheaper and budget camera models from Nikon lacks a built-in auto focus motor, and we at Lensora appreciate auto focus, so in the list of compatible cameras we have chosen to display only the cameras that you can get autofocus with.
The lens has a focal length of 28-75 mm. Depending on which camera the lens is used, the experienced and perceived focal length will be different. Please visit the list of compatible cameras below, it will provide the equivalent focal length you get on each camera.

Lens brightness and image stabilizer
The lens brightness and aperture value is f/2,8.
This aperture value indicates that the lens is very bright.  This will make it so much easier shooting in darker environments where you do not want or can use flash lighting, for example in churches or at different sports venues.
A feature worth commenting, which is also related to lens brightness, is that the brightness and maximum aperture-value remains constant regardless of focal length used. This makes it easier for you as a photographer. No matter if you are have the focus ring and focal length at 28 mm or at 75 mm the aperture value can be f/2,8.
The lens lacks image stabilization, which otherwise os good for avoiding the blur that can occur when using slow shutter speeds. Since the lens is bright, with good aperture value, the lack of image stabilization might not be that big of a deal, although a image stabilizer is always an advantage to have.

Filter and Lens Hood
The lens has a traditional filter thread on the front and its measuring 67 mm which also the filter you will use must have. If you use for example an UV filter can be a cheap insurance against scratches and dust.
Together with the lens there is a lens hood included but we have unfortunately no further information on model etc so feel free to contact us if you know more.

Text from Tamron:"The Tamron SP designation is reserved for lenses developed with special emphasis on extraordinary photographic performance. Engineers are free to innovate in an uncommon atmosphere where optical performance comes before price, resulting in lenses that satisfy the demands of discerning photographers.

High resolution full-frame digital SLRs demand the optical quality for which the SP 28-75mm F/2.8 XR Di is famous. Another in Tamron´s selection of fast and constant F2.8 maximum aperture optics, its speed benefits photographers in several ways, including the ability to render cluttered backgrounds well out of focus, added low-light shooting freedom and a brighter viewfinder image. Featuring XR (Extra Refractive Index) and LD (Low Dispersion) glass in an optical formula employing 16 elements and 14 groups—assuring sharpness, optimal contrast and color accuracy, rendering striking images. Sophisticated aspherical element design and internal focus contribute to barrel size that belies a typically large F2.8 optic. With both an ideal picture angle range, fast aperture and outstanding optical properties, it´s no wonder that so many SP 28-75mm F/2.8 lenses can be found in the bags of noted wedding and corporate shooters."
