Bokeh samples of Tamron 35-135/3.5-4.5 (feat. Sigma 17-70 also)

Okey here are some a little bit more controlled shots/samples:

Tamron at 35mm, f/3.5:

Tamron at 135mm, f/4.5:

Now modest comparison between Tamron and Sigma 17-70/2.8-4.5 lens at 70mm:

Tamron at 70mm, f/4:

Sigma at 70mm, f/4.5:


Tamron at 70mm, f/4:

Sigma at 70mm, f/4.5:

hmmm... Sigma's bokeh looks actually pretty nice at 70mm if compare to Tamron, although it's well know fact that this kind of zoom lense's bokeh is acceptable at long end but worse in middle of range (like 70mm with Tamron 35-135 lens) also Sigma 17-70mm's weak spot is 40-50mm what comes to bokeh - though I think that this Sigma is overall quite (better than most of) good zoom lens.

Tamron's 35mm, f/3.5 crop:

Tamron's 135mm, f/4.5 crop:

Also Tamron show much nicer bokeh at its long end.

next: some real life/ daylight shots in near future
