So, this is a better lens, but considerably more expensive.  Possibly the latest Canon and Nikon 135 system equivalents will have caught up to this level of performance?  (Not at f/2, obviously, but putting that aside.)

Then there is the rather important fact that the Zuikos don't work on any APS-C or 135 body in any case.  So really it is a bit irrelevant to compare them as they are not options in themselves -- you must choose a system that will use the Zuikos if you want them.

The point I was making was not that 14-35 is of lesser value lens, the point I was trying to communicate is that Tamron is not a c-grade optic either. Looking at these test results I can not say I am not impressed,

Tamron 24-70mm F2.8 VC Studio Tests

But as you say, it is irrelevant to compare them outside their systems. And since my Nikon 24-70/2.8 hardly gets any use on FF camera, I don't think I would ever have an interest in 24-70/4 variant if there was one.
