In this video, I do a VC and AF noise test for the Tamron SP 24-70mm Di VC f/2.8 lens. I wanted to ensure that the Autofocus and Vibration Control noise of this lens would not be too distracting in a quiet environment, and I think it did quite well.

The AF test was done on a low-contrast subject with my T2i camera, which uses older Autofocus mechanisms, but it still did quite well. From using this lens for a couple of months already, I’d say it is a good focuser.
