Tamron has an 24-70mm vc and a 28-75mm non vc.

The 24-70 is brilliant on a 5d mkiii. Great vc for filming fast constant aperture and it's very sharp across the frame in stills.

For an sl-1 it's just complete overkill and you will miss the wide-end.

The stm is good starter lens but the sigma 17-70 is better.

The sigma is simply a full stop faster. At 70mm it's a decent portrait lens ands the faster aperture allows you to use lower iso's.

What do you think about Tamron 17-50 VC f/2.8?

Good value and optics.

Vc is good too.

Af motor is terrible and noisy.
