Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD SP

Review Date: Aug 28, 2012 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,299.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: I sold the Canon 24-70L to try out this lens and am astounding of its performance compared to the so-called main stream "L" lens. It is sharp and very nice color rendering. AF is fast and accurate using with Canon 5D3. Well built but lighter than the "brick." Look nice with FF body. I do not know this lens is better and cheaper than 24-70L II but it has Vibration Control which seems Canon does not include in the mark II one.
Cons:
It has vignetting because of the 82mm I guess and does not have glass covering in the back element like most lenses. Focal window is easy to break (did not know why?) since I had to send back to Tamron to replace it.

I would prefer to use the FL of this lens on my 5D3 99% of time I went out shooting or walk around.

Pros: Fast focus and accurate. Produces better pictures. Love the click sound.
Cons:
Heavy with 70-200

This body built like tank and heavy especially with 24-70 and 70-200. However, I feel more balance than with gripped 7d and 5d2. The 1D4 produces exceptional better pictures than 7D and 5D2. i owned 1D2n before but this one I like the most. I feel more confident with this body after taking and processing the pictures.
