The new Tamron 20-40mm f/2.8 might just be the dream lens you've been looking for...on paper.  Of course, the "on paper" caveat is where the rubber meets the road and our resident filmmaker/photographer Josh Balich is here to dive deep on whether or not this should be a worthwhile purchase for your arsenal. So, what makes this new gear from Tamron a dream lens contender? When it comes to the market of zoom lenses they all tend to stay in the same framework. Most major brands offer a 16-35 | 24-70 | 70-200. These are all excellent lenses, but their steep price can keep many photographers at bay. That’s where Tamron's new 20-40mm f/2.8 lens comes into play. It’s a unique zoom range we haven’t seen before, and the price is actually affordable. All of these specs and of course, the price, sound great in theory. But what about in practice? Watch below as we test the lens to its limits. We discover some great no-so-obvious features along the way and several drawbacks you should consider before buying. If you're in the market for a new zoom lens, this one is for you.
