Nikon 24-70 vs. Tamron 28-75 on a D3 -- focus test gallery

Like others above, I would recommend the Tamron 28-75 as a lesser priced alternative to the Nikon 24-70.

I have both and ran a focus test comparison on my D3.

Test details: 43 inches distance, tripod, shot in NEF, converted to jpg, no in camera or PP sharpening, no PP, uploaded full size to a Smugmug gallery.
