Tamron 24-70 f/2.8 VC vs. Canon 24-70 f/2.8 Mk I?
Jun 9, 2012

I just bought the Tamron 24-70 VC. So far I'm pretty happy with it. Focuses quickly, colors are nice, and seems to be pretty sharp. I've never used the Canon 24-70 Mk 1, however, so I'm not sure how the Tamron compares to it.

Here are a couple of shots and 100% crops. I'd be curious to hear from anyone that has experience with the Canon 24-70. How do these shots compare in terms of sharpness?
