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

Review Date: Sep 2, 2019 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $800.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: Sharp Half the price of canon 24-70 2.8 mk2 One of the first 24-70 f2.8 lense with image stabilization Cheap compare to Canon lenses Comes with 6 year warranty (vs 1 for canon lenses)
No red ring and does not look expensive - may matter if you are shooting in front of clients The manual focusing ring is thin, so harder to turn if you need need to do manual focusing.

I have been using the Tamron 24-70 f2.8 VC on Canon 6d and Canon 5dmk3 for 2-3 years. I use it mostly on events such as weddings and business functions, as well as portrait sessions. I compare it against the Canon 24-70 f2.8 mk2, and found its image quality and sharpness to be very close. I can not justify spending an extra 800 on the Canon when the Tamron meets 90% of my needs. The focusing is fast and silent. The VC (image stabilization) works with slow shutter speed. I don't shoot in extreme conditions so I can't comment on how weather resistant it is. I would highly recommend this lense, unless you care for the red ring on canon lenses.
