Nikon 24-120mm f/4 vs. Tamron 24-135mm f/3.5-5.6 - MY TEST
Mar 14, 2013

So I'm trying to decide if I should keep my 24-120mm (I might have some slight VR issues) or not and picked up a cheap Tamron 24-135mm on ebay in case I do sell the Nikon.  The Tamron is amazingly cheap used and I got mine for $90 on ebay.    So far the Tamron is doing very well.

All these shots were shot with VR off, high shutters, and processed through Lightroom.  I took out the CA, but did not mess with the distortion.  I also used the same sharpness levels for all shots.  I also downsized the Tamron 135mm shots to 'fit' the Nikon 120mm shots.  Pretty interesting results IMO.
