I have this lens with my 5DIII but continue to experience AF problems. It requires AF adjustment (unlike my canon lenses). But the real headache is that I cannot adjust the center AF point to match peripheral AF points. When the center point is adjust perfectly, the peripheral points are back focused. Then when peripheral points are adjusted perfectly, the center point is front focused. I tested 2 more copies at the store and they all had this problem. Had mine sent into Tamron and they acknowledged this problem and couldn't even fix it and instead sent me a new lens from a new batch. It is a lot better than my original lens but problem still exist just difference between center point and peripheral points is not as severe.

In reply to:

eddiephtgrphr: This camera is still not affordable. I was under the impression that there will be a price range between $1200 and $1500 Cdn.

Keep dreaming...A full frame camera for $1200 to $1500? Not going to happen anytime soon. If that happened what will become of the Nikon D7000 and Canon 7D?

Of course there is PP. Heavy? No way. Remember, this was taken through 2 inches of thick glass, which resulted in a loss of saturation and contrast. All I did was boost the contrast and saturation of the original Raw file. No heavy PP here. The original scene was even more colorful.
