Since I owned the canons flagship 24-70mm f2.8L version i for two years, I was impressed with the photos it captured. It's definitely sharp and the colors are vivid. But in my opinion the Tamron 24-70 f2.8 VC has surpassed the lens from canon in many aspect. I think that Tamron lens is a lot sharper and colors are a lot better. But the Build quality of the canon lens is far superior to Tamron lens. The Tamron's VC is a must have which the Canon 24-70 version I and ii do not have. (I can't say much about the canon 24-70mm version ii because I never tried it)
- very sharp
- consistent focus (spot focus)
- vibration compensation
- build quality (doesn't look cheap anymore)
- noticeable vignettes in wide apertures on 24mm and 70mm
The Tamron 24-70mm f2.8 VC is a great option if you want to upgrade from your kit lens or upgrade your old Canon 24-70mm f2.8 version 1. Hands down I'll get this Tamron international version (international is $800 while US version is $1499) and save me money to buy another lens. If I had the money to buy the canon 24-70 version ii, will I buy it.... Sure! (Red ring L series is always the best). But I don't want to spend more than $1800 or more for a lens considering photography is not my bread and butter .
The Tamron Lens' Vibration compensation is a must have. And I think that Tamron finally got this lens right this time. I am looking forward to pairing this Tamron 24-70 f2.8 VC with the 70-200 f2.8 VC. Good luck and happy shooting.
This is a really great lens, end of lens review. Seriously, their are many great professionally done reviews about it and they are not exaggerating about it's quality, it will not fail to please.
I mainly wrote this review for few different reasons that may be helpful to some.
I purchased this grey market from CW US. The grey market part I was fully aware of, the "Made in China" stamp I was not and was going to return it just for that reason.
But after some research I found Tamron manufactures in China as well as Japan, they have two locations/facilities in China so it is not being sourced to Chinese manufacturers and that makes all the difference.
I was still a bit wary of "Made in China" of course for reasons we all are aware of. But I have tested the lens extensively and it functions flawlessly, I have compared to the Japanese version and is identical, so my advice is don't let the made in China aspect bother you too much if you get one from there it makes no difference it is a quality lens made to Tamrons high standards.
Bottom line, No it is definitely not some cheap knock off.
Warranties = waste of money in all but a very small percentage of cases.
The extended warranties you see offered do not cover grey market items period and are a total waste of money.
The fact is companies that offer them do not go out of the way to make it known they do not cover international versions that have no USA manufacturers warranty, I bought a SquareTrade but after some research canceled it got my money back after they confirmed they do not cover grey market so read closely or call and ask for your self the other companies that offer them..
Technically they are doing nothing wrong since it is all in the fine print but truthfully they are dishonest cheats that bank of the fact most people that buy the warranties will never use them.
In many cases they would not honor many of them as well when then did not fall into a narrow set of guide lines and even those reasons are at there discretion.
Also on side note if you buy the drops and spills that will not be covered unless it is specifically offered at the time of sale for the item you are purchasing and it must be purchased at the time of sale as well, seriously that is right in the fine print.
So if you are expecting them to verify your item will be covered, you are quite mistaken.
Extended warranty providers are some shady characters so beware.
Tamron the company just to make things worse and something you must know before buying a Tamron lens is Tamron the company will not even look at these grey market lenses, Period. Seriously they will not fix them for cash. If you don't believe duckduckgo it.
So if it is in need of service you will need to find an outfit that can and has access to parts from Tamron if needed, as of now I have no idea of who would.
Basically if you break it that's that.
In my experience their is very little that can go wrong with these lenses, if it is okay when you get it probably will stay that way if you take care of it, they are very reliable under normal use. If you use it in extreme conditions and expect you may need maintenance or possible repairs you may want to spend the extra and go with an official import.
Tamron is the exception with repair issues, other manufacturers like Sigma are happy to fix any of their lenses regardless, Canon as well.
One must question Tamrons malfunction in this area of policy
