Lens for Canon R5

Hi All,

In 2021 I bought the Canon R5, but my lenses are now the bottle neck in performance.

I have now:

Tamron 24-70 2.8 - 5 years old

Sigma 70-200 - old version, maybe 12+ years old

Canon 15mm Fish Eye - Good for some fun shots

I have still some cashback to spend (550 euros) and I want to invest in the lens which gives me the biggest boost in quality performance/work. In +- 3 years I want a complete the switch to RF mount lenses.

Budget I can spend now: Around 3000 euros (this includes the cashback).

Focus: Concerts/events (60%) Bandshoots/portraits (20%) Travel/docu (20%).
Most used: Tamron 24-70 (60%), Sigma 70-200 (20%), Rest 20%


Canon RF 28-70 2.8
Canon RF 24-70 2.8
Canon RF 70-200 2.8

What do you think will be the best choice? It looks obvious to look in the 24-70 range, but actually, I think the quality gap between the Tamron and the Canon RF's is the smallest so the smallest boost in performance upgrade?
What would you do?

Canon EOS R5
