VC (Vibration Compensation)
VC (Vibration Compensation) is Tamron’s proprietary image stabilization system. Tamron’s VC is a three-coil system, whereby three driving coils activate the shake-compensating VC lens group electromagnetically via three steel balls. The VC lens elements are held in place only by contact with the steel balls, achieving smooth movement with little friction. This provides a stable viewfinder image with excellent tracking performance. And as the VC lens may be moved in parallel using only the motorized control, the mechanical structure has been simplified, enabling the creation of a more compact lens.

New VC System (moving coil method)  
Tamron’s original VC image stabilization mechanism utilized a moving magnet system whereby a heavy magnet was positioned near the moving VC lens element. In the new VC unit the positions of the magnet and the coil are reversed, because of this, the VC optical lens element is attached to the coil. The new VC mechanism employs a moving coil mechanism with a lightweight coil, and the lighter coil reduces the load on the drive system. Thus, the lighter, more compact new VC unit contributes to the lens’s overall light weight and compact size.

Because the 24-70 mm F/2.8 Di VC USD is a high-speed zoom lens with maximum aperture of F/2.8, its VC system must drive a lens that is larger and heavier than other zooms. Therefore, the shape, size and layout of the drive coils are all designed to obtain sufficient thrust.  The result is a full-size, high-speed zoom that provides the same high level of compensation effect. 

About the ultrasonic motor
In the ultrasonic motor, a piezoelectric element arranged in a ring formation generates ultrasonic vibrations in a metallic ring stator, and the vibration energy is used to rotate a metallic ring rotor that is attached to the stator. The rotation energy is in turn transferred from the metallic ring rotor to operate the focus lens.

Glasgow GB
-Extremely sharp for a zoom lens
-Ideal range for portrait and street work on my d7200
-half the price of the Nikon equivalent
-Beautiful bokeh
-Great indoors
-Maybe slightly unbalanced on the camera, due to the weight of the lens, without my battery grip on. Use my battery grip 90% of the time so not really an issue for me.
- At first I felt the colours were a tiny bit washed out but a wee jig about with my in-camera settings sorted that out.
- Probably not wide enough for landscapes on a crops sensor but use my 10-20 for them anyway so again no issue.

After dropping my sigma 24-70 2.8 when shooting a wedding I resolved to replace it with something better, I had never been happy with the sigma wide open. I was on the point of buying the canon 24-70 2.8 L when I read a few reviews of this lens. After much consideration I thought I'll give it a go.

It's less than half the price of the canon, which I have used on rental, wide open beats the sigma, I've looked back over the canon shots and the Tamron is as sharp, very slightly differing contrast but nothing concerning. 5 yr warranty too ...

And, the VC stabilisation feature works very well, 3 stops down and still clear... great for events ....

Did I mention it's half the price of the canon :-)
no dislike really, the zoom ring is at the front but it just takes a little getting used to

Leeds GB I`m a pro photographer.
The lens is the best choice between Sigma and Tamron. It has faster autofocus, it is more sturdy and better built, AND IT DOES HAVE Image Stabilizer. Im not comparing it with Nikon as there is no point, but it is deffo second best lens. Unless you are very limited to finance... then grab a credit and buy Tamron anyway.
Slightly more vigneting on open apperture comparing to Sigma, but not drastic difference, can be easily removed with camera auto vigneting correction.

Sharp at 2.8, very good IQ at all lengths and apertures.
As with most lenses, the distance scale is inaccurate, but this is the only thing I think of.
