p.2 #1 · p.2 #1 · Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD Lens for $884


forgive me if I repeat myself on this topic that comes up from time to time with this lens, but I rented this Tamron a while back and absolutely loved it for family, nature, daytime, low light action. My only issue was the coma which affects astrophotography, so I had to pass. At this price, wow. It is a great lens, now a great price.

That's a screaming deal for some good glass owned mine for about a year now and I have no complaints, ok I actually have one the zoom direction sucks but otherwise I'm much happier and a good deal bit richer for passing on the canon 24-70ii.

from over at DP Review: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/52000539

30 August 2013:

"Well, I sent #2 [Tamron 24-70] in to Tamron to address the decentering issues and just got it back today (about 1.5 week turn-around with shipping...nice!)."

"I must say I'm quite impressed. The image quality corner to corner is just outstanding! Even a landscape image at f2.8 is outstanding in the center and pretty good in the corners, and by f4 and f5.6 is great corner to corner!"

"I now consider myself to have a "golden" copy of this lens and will definitely be keeping it! IS works quite well (I'd put it about or a little better than the 24-105). Image quality exceeds the 24-105 by a large margin."

Thanks for the update rdcny- I don't check the DPReview forums often.

I took the 24-105L to an event over the weekend, and quickly bagged it in favor of faster primes; and then, I could really have used the 24-70 focal length. While I'm interested in Sigma's claim of a 24-70/2 OS in development, the Tamron is just about perfect- as long as I can get a great copy of it. It would largely replace my 24/2.8, 40/2.8, 50/1.4, and 85/1.8 for such photography, and would preclude the need for me to carry my SY14/2.8 for most things. Granted, only the 24/2.8 is on the chopping block, as I literally don't use it enough on FF like I did on crop; and I couldn't give up the 40's 'stealth' appeal, the 50/1.4 for low-light and wider portraits, or the 85/1.8 for closer portraits, of course.

Only problem is that I'm much more interested in a 70-200/2.8 IS II, where I think Canon still has Tamron solidly beaten, in the long-end and action AF departments especially, where I'd want to use a fast telezoom the most.

So, I guess I'll be saving up .
