Re: Tamron 24-70, f2.8 VC

I hope that the quality of the new lens measures up to the price! For that price I would opt for Canon or Nikon. I have the original 28-75 2,8 and regardless of all the wonderful reviews mine is going back to Tamron on Monday. It is extremely soft at 2.8 dead center both on my Canon 60D and a new 60D at Calumet where the Calumet Associates checked it out. Their conclusion: "Send it back to Tamron. This is not a good lens and it needs adjustment if not replacement." I actually worry about the level of service, but we will see.
