The Tamron is a C-grade optic that needs stopping down to f/5.6 to even approach the resolution of the ZD 14-35 at f/2.0, and simply never reaches the contrast or colour fidelity, that's how. LOL - comparing the two is quite a funny proposition Thanks for the laugh.

It is not what the testers say

Tamron SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD on Canon EOS 5D Mark II

It is also known that different makers do intentionally produce different color renderings, and so there is no one better than the other. As far as the tamron goes, I saw them produce brighter and more vibrant tones, than other system (native) variants that I had. Vibrant tones do usually look attractive (juicy) in macro photography, closeups, flowers, etc..  whereas cooler hues are often better fit in portrait and even some landscape renderings. Most what you shoot today gets post-processed in one way or the other anyway (or preset in camera), so at the end it all makes very little difference if at all.
