Re: What would you go for? Tamron VS Nikkor @ 24-70

To Audamba & Aus4ever,

of course it is a matter of tastes, and we all have different
In my case, the rendition of the 24-70 appears harsh, with blocked blacks, and "paling" skin tones. Of course much can be done in post, but the renditions of the 35-70 & of the 28-70 are completely different.
Possibly less "good" technically, but certainly more pleasing to my eyes when it comes to depicting people.

The best thing to do is to try one in comparison

Btw, I tried again a 24-70 on my D4, which has more dynamic range than the D3s, and again, I saw that peculiar strong rendition that to me screams "digital", and is unpleasant on people (caveat: studio light mitigates the issue, as you can easily knock down general contrast with opportune lighting).

Good luck!
