I am planning to buy the Canon 6D nowadays, and I cannot decide whether to get it with the kit lens or to buy Tamron 24-70. I am ready to pay little extra for the Tamron if it is much better than the Canon 24-105. For me the focus accuracy is much important than sharpness and I don't care about vignetting and sharpness loss at the corners since my objects will mostly not be at the corners. What would you get if you were going to choose between? Thanks Adem

I'm a new videographer who just purchased most of my gear, except the lenses. I have a Canon 5dmkii with a Canon 55mm f/1.8 After reading lots of reviews and recommendations I've narrowed down the field to some third party lenses I'm considering going in on. At this point my budget is roughly $600-$900, so that puts me at either one zoom lens or two primes. For zooms I'm looking at the:Tamron 24-70 f/2.8 ( image stabilization) vs the Canon 24-70 f/2.8 (with no IS). I've also heard mixed...

Hey everyone. First time posting on the forum, so bear with me. I shoot sports and action a lot - basketball, etc... I have two Canon bodies (70D and T3i) and am looking at a better wide angle lens. Here are the lenses I have: 18-55 kit lens 70-200 2.8 50mm 1.8 85mm 1.8 I'm thinking to sell the 85mm 1.8 and buying a better wide-angle (2.8) lens where the AF is going to work fast enough for sports like basketball. As I see it, I have 2 or 3 options if I'm not going with a Canon 24-70 (since I...

Hello everyone, I was wondering if Nikon 24-85mm AF-S VR is a good backup lens for Tamron 24-70mm VC? I basically need to buy a mid-zoom lens and I am thinking towards Tamron 24-70 VC, and I am also thinking of a backup (Crazy I know, my bank account also disagreeing at the moment), but everything else aside, how does the IQ hold up with a D800? I found this lens new and quite cheap and am thinking of getting one, but would really like to get the real-life user reviews. Many thanks...

Hi all, This is my first post, so be gentle! Hope I've posted in the right place! I'm shooting with a Canon 450D at the moment and I've built up a nice collection of lenses: - Canon 15-85mm f3.5-5.6 - Sigma 10-20mm f3.5 - Sigma 70-300 f4- 5.6 - Sigma 30mm f1.4 I want to upgrade because, well frankly, in low light the 450D is pants! Anything with an ISO over 400 and I get so much noise. Plus, the newer entry level camera's seem to be out performing this in every situation. I'm also going on a...

Hi All, a few facts: I've had a keen interest in photography for a long time and the best camera I have ever worked with was a Canon G10 - I've really enjoyed it, especially whilst traveling. Beyond the D600 as my first DSLR body, I have been considering the Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD as a much cheaper alternative to its Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8 counterpart. I am going travelling very soon and figure this kit will suffice (although it doesn't quite hit the 140mm equiv. of the Canon G10 at...

Hello all, I will visit these areas in June. I don't know when I will have a chance to visit them again since I'm coming from Europe. So I need some suggestions for taking good landscape shots. I will try to use the golden hours in every location. I will have my Full Frame camera, a tripod and some good lenses: 50mm 1.4 70-200mm 2.8 I moved recently to Full Frame so I'm looking for a wide angle lens. I'm actually evaluating the following lenses: Nikon 14 - 24 f2.8 (very limited availability,...

I was looking around for a fixed aperture standard zoom and had almost settled on the Tamron 28-75 f/2.8 lens for my Nikon D5100. and now it has come up with a newer 24-70 VC lens that costs more than double. USD 1200 agaist USD 440 for the older one Is it worth investing in teh new lens or rather can anyone help me with understanding what I would "stand to lose" by sticking with the older model?

Hi everyone, I recently purchased the 650D (t4i) and got the kit with 18-135 IS STM lens. I have been shooting with it for a while and I am pretty satisfied with it. However, as anyone else I would like to be able able to get those sharper and more brilliant pictures with the smooth blurry background.Will upgrading my kit lens to a mid-to-high range zoom such as the TAMRON 24-70 f\2.8 or Canon 24-105 f\4L really create a noticeable difference in the parameters I expressed above? Alternately,...
