Does anyone out there own this combination, the Tamron 24-70 and the A77II? If so, what has been your experience with focus accuracy and the need for MFA?  In particular, do you find a huge discrepancy in the needed MFA value at 24mm versus 70mm? Reason I ask is so far I have tried out two copies and both are way off in needed MFA at both ends.  Both copies are off by as much as 13 points.  At 24mm, I need around a -6 to -7 to get tack sharp photos.  But setting this makes the 70mm shots very...

I am considering buying one with Sony A mount.  The reviews are awesome and beside  vignetting and barrel distortions at f/2.8, and 24 focal distance (which are somehow normal and also present in the more expensive zooms). My main worry is how the hybrid aspherical lens is going to last in time. My understanding is that the hybrids are made from a spherical lens behind which optical quality resin is injected to form an aspherical type of lens by superposition. This resin (some call it...

Hello Friends.. Need some help... recently I bought Nikon D750 and Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 DI VC USD Lens ... I am having battery drain issues .. I thought its a battery issue but I tried it with other battery, still the same issue. A full charged battery takes only 150-160 shots though nikon claims 1200 plus shots. To do further research I started using my Nikon f1.8G prime lens and I found that the camera battery is performing much better... takes around 600 plus shots with some video...

This is about zooms: 16-35, 24-70, and 70-200. Canon is unique in offering both F2.8 and F4 versions. Nikon only has F2.8. Sony FE (the new A7 models) are only F4. But there are differences: 1) While the 70-200 has IS for both apertures, the F4 has for the 16-35 and the 24-70. For low light stills, IS may provide 2-4 F-stops more light with a slower shutter speed (although with more motion blur of a moving subject) while the F2.8 is just one F-stop faster. For low light stills, F4 IS would...

Hi, I am going on a trip through Europe in a month and am considering replacing my APS-C camera (Sony A65) and all my lenses with the A7r. Most of the photos I like to take are landscapes, hence why I am considering the A7r. The problem is I cannot decide what lens I should pair with this camera. Initially, I will only have enough money for 1 lens so it is going to have to be a zoom. Currently I am looking at the 24-70 lenses as the main lens I use on my A65 is the Tamron 17-50. Here are the...

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...
