Very sharp images and fast focus.

I have had two samples of the Nikon lens and compared to both, the Tamron easily wins in the IQ department.

I need to preface this review with an announcement from Canon that they are releasing three new lenses around summer 2012: An improved Mark II version of their popular EF 24-70mm f/2.8L, and image stabilized versions of their 24mm and 28mm f/2.8 lenses. Canon users were scratching their heads: Why an update to the venerable 24-70mm f/2.8 with NO image stabilization, while at the same time adding IS to the 24 and 28mm primes?? The new EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM is set to retail at $2,299, a whopping $1,000 over the Mark I... with no IS... it just doesn't make any sense, especially when Canon has had an IS equivalent for APS-C cameras out for six years already: the Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM.

Now comes this Tamron SP 24-70mm Di VC USD lens (available for Canon, Nikon and Sony mounts), already shipping in late April 2012 for $1000 less than the upcoming Canon non-IS version. Tamron is really stealing Canon's thunder with this lens! The VC stands for Vibration Compensation, Tamron's version of image stabilization. I was able to pick up a copy the first week it was out, and after running it through its paces with the amazing 5D Mark III, I have to say I am VERY happy with it.

Right off the bat everyone's main concern is going to be the sharpness vs. the grand old Canon "L" version. Put those concerns aside, this lens has excellent sharpness at most focal lengths wide open, with just a bit of softness and light falloff in the corners. Stop it down just one stop to f/4 and sharpness / contrast improves quite nicely in the corners, with superb image quality across the whole frame from f/5.6 through f/11. I said "most" focal lengths because this lens excels at the wide-to-normal range, performing the best from 24mm through about 50mm (35mm is outstanding).

Style Name: Canon MountSize Name: A007E
This is my first Tamron lens of all my Canon L lens series. I was disappointed with Canon after a long wait for their new release 24-70 MkII. Needless to say I cancel my pre order and instead bought this lens after reading favorable reviews. I got my lens yesterday and took a couple of indoor and outdoor shots. The vibration compensation WORK extremely well. The picture stay sharp with steady hand even at slow 1/8th of seconds. There is vignetting in wide open f2.8, however the vignetting was very subtle and this does not bother me at all. The vignetting can be adjusted in post production software like Adobe Lightroom 4. A LR4 feature under lens correction and check profile, then choose the right lens manufacturer in this case Tamron and then choose proper lens focal length (adobe LR4 need to update Tamron lens profile).
The camera use to review this Tamron lens is Canon 5D Mark II (full frame). The big plus for this lens vs. Canon 24-70 Mki and Canon 24-105 f4/L are;
1. Tamron is fast lens at f2.8
2. Vibration compensation is seamless and unnoticeable.
3. Quite ultrasonic focusing. Its fast.
4. Sharp in the center wide open and sharp corner to corner stopping down to f4.
5. Bokeh is pleasant. Do not be fool with the onion ring bokeh. I did not see it in my indoor shots at 100% magnifications.
6. Color saturation equal to Canon lens or even better in some shots I took.
7. Close up shots is sharp in center with blurry background. Taken wide open. Beautiful dreamy effect.
8. The MOST important advantage of this lens is the PRICE. High for Tamron lens but way better price point than Canon L lens.

The minus for this lens;
1. The zoom ring is tight hope this will break in after several use.
2. The filter size is huge 82mm. This is the same size filter with my Canon 16-35 2.8L. So not bad if you already have extra filters

Well folks hope this review help. So keep on shooting beautiful pictures out there.

I shoot general photography, which includes all sorts of activity, from restaurant outings to gardening. When I bought this lens, I had currently owned the Canon 24-70mm L mark 1, and loved that lens, except it didnt have IS, which is incredibly useful for video and low light. I found that my keeper rates have not changed going to the Tamron (if anything, it improved from great to excellent), but the sharpness had definitely improved at every focal length and aperture. I had to verify that it wasnt my imagination, so I tried a few tests on a tripod, using live view, and indeed the tamron was a tad sharper at every focal length and aperture on my full frame camera.

It's not the perfect lens though (I dont believe one exists!), it is the jack of all trades. VC is extremely competent, probably the best in the business. AF is not L fast, but fast enough that I dont miss shots, and even AI Servo works fine. The build quality is on par with the 24-105mm, very very solidly built. The bokeh does have issues(onion and a tad bit busy), but I've found them to be very minor with real world shots, and very easy to clean up. The color rendition is L level. Vignetting is kind of odd on this lens. The drop off is less overall than the mark 1, but where it actually vignettes, it's more pronounced. F2.8 is very sharp, from corner to corner, I have no hesitation shooting it wide open. There was no way I could get the canon 24-70mm Mark 1 to be as sharp as the tamron at F2.8. I was very suprised by that finding, but it is what it is.

In the end, it came down to a hard decision. Having a Canon L series lens is very comforting. You know that you've got the best tool made by the manufacturer. It had better bokeh, but was less sharp. It was built like a brick, and weighed like one too....
