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.

Camera Store look

Rather informal, but they find that the Tamron is a little sharper, better sealed, and is noticeably lighter, but has slightly less effective VC.

The Sigma predictably turns the Canon direction, and the Tamron the Nikon direction.

He seems like politic. Talks hours and tells you nothing worthy. All could have been said in 1 minute. Is it good or is it bad lens? Well lets find out in another video = more clicks

Dustin's part 2 video on the direct comparison

Summary, if you use a Tripod, the Canon is very slightly sharper - if you handhold the lens and use 'normal' shutter speeds, the Tamron will be consistently sharper - and since many people who purchase this type of lens (a 24-70 F2.8), are Event shooters, there is really no difference and the Tamron is cheaper.

(1) As I posted in the forum, in both Part 1 and Part 2, in many places where the Canon is called "just a hair/shade better" or "almost the same" etc., I find that, at least as it comes across on YouTube, i see clear/stark "leaps and bounds" of difference. The Canon images just pop out as more crisp and detailed, both at 1:1 and close-up. I have no doubt that my assessment could be majorly wrong due to YouTube compression! But honestly, it seem the Canon is not just "slightly" sharper, but an entire class better, in almost every non-hand held comparison.

(2) I am not an event shooter, so forgive me for my ignorance ... but does IS help that much if the subjects are living, breathing, and moving? I guess if you ask them to "hold a pose"? But for just taking shots in the background while the event plays out in front of you, maybe not?

for shooting people you want 1/60th or faster anyhow

So I doubt 5 stops of IS would help unless it is ambient light in a flash shot or something.

I do not confirm Rob. Shooting events does not mean, people hurry around all the time.
I did great shots at 1/15th in available light situations that would not have been possible without IS because I would not have been able to hold the camera still enough.

As good the Canon 2.8 II is - the missing IS made it a nogo for me and I chose Tamrons 2.8.
Very happy with it. Great lens, excellent IQ, less then half price and a 5 year warranty I am dreaming about as a long time Canon shooter.

The only problem with Tamron I have is that all new lenses are horrible overpriced compared to same product one year later. So I have to wait for one year before I purchase the "new" things. But that is same with Canon bodies (not lenses).
