My Tamron 24-70 VC vs Sigma 24-70 HSM test
May 2, 2012

Ok, so after a couple of days with the Tamron 24-70 2.8 VC lens, I've put the summary of my findings on my blog here:

http://www.arthurdomagala.com/blog/2012/05/tamron-24-70-2-8-vc-tested-vs-sigma-24-70-2-8-hsm/

The synopsis: the Tamron is very, very good wide open. But when stopped down the edge performance seems poor. It is possible I may have gotten a bad copy of the Tamron. I will be returning mine, but would be very interested in seeing if anyone else gets more positive results with their copy as this is still a lens that would be worth consideration. But in the meantime, I'm sticking with the Sigma as my go-to zoom lens.
