Canon EOS 5D Mark II

Review Date: Dec 27, 2009 Recommend? no | Price paid: $2,700.00 | Rating: 8 

Pros: LCD, Video
Cons:
AF, low Iso chroma noise and banding noise

5D Mark II still is a sluggish shutter response camera. Out of date AF, especially in low light, very disappointing when using with f2.0 or larger lenses. The resolution and image quality are better at hi-iso, but low iso flaws such as chroma noise & banding noise at any high DR scene, etc... can not be accepted when compared to older cameras at low iso.

I donít think it is worth $1000 to upgrade from the old 5D since my expectations were perhaps too high for AF and whole iso range.

Tamron 28-75MM F/2.8 XR Di LD Aspherical (IF)

2875mm
Review Date: Dec 3, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $375.00 | Rating: 9 

Pros: Lens Optical is the best and it is comparable with EF prime series
Cons:
Inconsistence AF in 28-50mm@all apperture - Required MFG re-calibration

Hold on - do not return your best lens - for those who has AF problem with this lens - There is a way to work around - either sending your lens back to have front focus calibration fixed (6-8 weeks) or before pushing the shutter - pushing to 75mm - haft depress shutter to AF - continue to hold on the shutter and zooming the lens back to desire position then complete the shutter. You will get 100% correct AF with mavelous optical performance of the lens this way. I find the lens performance is very much the same as EF 85mm f/1.8

This lens is just a fraction of L lens cost but its sharpness will out perform the 24-70L. Images just like in 3D if in AF.
