Tamron 24-70 vs. Nikon 24-70...Worth the price difference?
Oct 29, 2012

I know the Nikon is the better lens, but is it worth the extra $600+ now that Tamron has an image stabilized alternative?  I have a D90....looking to step up at some point (tempted by the D600 but have too many DX lenses).  I would use it primarily for travel and family.  Right now, I use either my 18-105 or one of my primes (35 1.8, 50 1.8, 85 1.8) but I was always envious of the 24-70 2.8.

Thanks for your help on this!
