Re: The new Tamron 24-70 VC is the FF 17-55 Equivalent!

I have a 5D MK II in the mail and will play with EF primes first, but I expect the Tamron 24-70 VC pricing to come down and I hope to see more consistency in their lens instead of playing the lens lottery. I've seen at least 5 different accounts of this lens ranging from completely worse to the 24-70, completely better, or mixed depending on focal length and edge or center! Nothing has been consistent, but supposedly even the Canon 24-70 does not have a consistent nature making many reports completely inconsistent!

What I do know however is that samples and results from near-perfect copies are just that...near-perfect!
