New Tamron 24-70 G2 or used Canon 24-70 L?
1

I have been waiting for the tamron to come out/reviews, but I have found a Mint Canon 24-70 L for £1250 vs the £1450 the tamron will be when released on a Canon mount in a couple of weeks.

The question is which would you buy? I'm edging towards the Canon as its half the weight and is normally tack sharp thoughtout, plus saving me a couple of hundred notes!

The tamron is twice the weight, but of course will have VC, but is that useful on a 24-70? Knowing that Canon didnt put IS on theirs to keep the sharpness, do you think the tamron will be that different without pixel peeping?

So what would you do buy the Canon or wait for the Tamron hoping its another G2 winner with VC
