Third-party lens depreciation
Jun 19, 2012

Hi,

Finally the Tamron 24-70(1100$) is in stock here where I live. I was looking forward to this lens, because it is more than half price of the Canon 24-70 II(2600$) and even 500$ more expensive than the Canon 24-70 I, and also includes VC which is not a must for me but it can come in handy.

One thing that concerns me is that if I buy the Tamron and try to sell it anytime after, it would not keep it's price as the Canon lenses will.

Anyone of you that has sold a third-party lens, could you tell me the percentage of the value loss in 1 and 2 years, or any experience you could share with me.

Is it smart to invest in the Tamron or stick with Canon m. I becase m. II is out of my reach at the moment, but even if i save enough I would feel bad for spending all my money on just 1 lens
Thank you.
