I wonder how this compares to the Canon 24-70ii. Difference is the Canon didn't put IS in this lens, I believe opting to emphasize IQ over handheld usability.

I just checked out local prices and new the Tamron G2 is priced the same as lightly used 24-70 f2.8L II's.

i can't stand watching that guy doing review. He pay too much detail into how he looks on the video. One lens, he break into like 3 or 4 video and each video, different lighting setting, different clothes, different sitting angle. WTF.. give us the review like normal people.

I like his reviews; always informative and complete. 5 stops of VC! Impressive.

Well, it's a rebodied 24-70/2.8 VC; Roger Cicala posted that the optical formula is unchanged, but everything else is updated.

Supposing that's true (haven't heard anything to corroborate), it should be a decent lens that still falls behind the 24-70/2.8L II like the G1, and about comparable to Nikon's outgoing 24-70/2.8G.

Interesting. I missed that. Given the price the 24-70 f4L IS is the bargain buy with used 24-70 f2.8L II's for fatter wallets.

If you need f/2.8, the Tamron and Sigma are probably just as good as the f/4 Canon, at increased size and weight.

I have gone off third party - preferring instead the reliability of Canon.

They probably created this lens (and the 150-600 G2) to add the compatibility with their dock. Oh, and to update the exterior style - not that the recent Tamron lenses didn't look good before. If I ever decide to go for a 24-70/2.8 lens, I'd choose between the Tamron G2... and the Tamron non-G2.
