    Di can work on film cameras. Di2 will result in vignetting on film cameras at the wider side.

    Apparently Tamron Di (Digitally Integrated) lenses have better optical characteristics that will bring significant performance on a DSLR, although traditional film SLRs will also be able to take advantage of the Di characteristics.

    How much difference it brings on an SLR with a Di lens compared to one that is not a Di...hmm...I don't know.

    Personally I'm not aware there is a Di2-designated lens from Tamron, but Di lenses can be used on both SLRs and DSLRs.
