Compare1 | Tamron 17-50 VC (v) Sigma 17-70 OS (v) Canon 15-85 IS

Give the Credit where Credit it due! Everyone please give SpartanWarrior a round of applause for doing these comparison for us. He sent me the original files, so I put them up on a 3x3 side-by-side photo for everyone to enjoy here @DPR.

  • Big 1920x1200 size, best viewed on big 24" - 28" LCD Monitor!

  • Sigma 17-70 could be a bad copy, Spartan is waiting for a 2nd copy. I'll post another result when he updated this comparison photos

  • I post these for fun, don't take them as scientific proof one lens is better than others. As Spartan's test reveal. His tamron 17-50 VC comapred badly against Canon 15-85IS, but 2nd copy seem to way sharper. Your result will varies, depends on Quality Control issues.

Without further ado, here they are. I hope you enjoy these:
