Re: Different Options

If you need video AF go with a native lens! If manual AF is fine (e.g. filming a stage) the Tamron will be good.

I also think there will be a native 70-200f2.8 from Tamron in 1-2 years. I would go for the (used?) 70-300 or 24-240 (test before buy - mine is fine at 240) and swap if a faster lens shows up.

Filming a stage in 4k and have the ability to zoom in and still deliver 1080 is great! Makes the video more dynamic and still only one main camera.
