Tamron 24-70 VC -- NOT sharp :-(
Apr 28, 2012

I just bought a Tamron 24-70 VC from a local dealer.

After comparing it to a Canon 24-70 and a Canon 24-105, I am sorry to report that it is dramatically less sharp.

I have a series of shots at 2.8 and 6.3, auto and manual focus. All at 50mm. And on all of them, the Tamron is muddy, the 24-105 is noticably better, and the 24-70 is slightly better again.

Unfortunate. I have the Tamron 70-300 and I love it. But the 24-70 VC is not the lens for me. I returned it. I also took a few test shots with the store copy Tamron lens, and the results were the same.

I'll post pictures tonight.
