I've seen both so No.

  • Excerpt: If I had not been replacing a Nikon 24-70 that got dropped, I would have probably thought the Tamron was a nice little lens but because I've used both I simply can't recommend this lens.
  • Cons: Blurry Focus

  • Excerpt: Ordered to satisfy my curiosity: I am a stong proponent of Canon glass for my Canons (1DsMIII's). After checking MTF (photozone.de and dpreview.com, et. al.) and other reviews I bought this unit. The autofocus is respectably quick, and the effects of the stabilization are quite obvious..

2 Stars not for the amazing lens, but for the purchasing experience

  • Summary: I'm writing this so that hopefully no one else has to go through what I did. After much research, I ordered this lens from amazon and noticed that it was going to be shipped from "COOL JAPAN OSAKA Select Shop".

3 out of 5 pictures come out sharp

  • Summary: I recently purchased a new Canon 5D Mark iii and needed a good lens, after A LOT of research and reviews i decided to purchase the Tamron 24-70 VC. The great reviews and par competition to its competitor "Canon" and the price sold me, especially the fact that it has VC (image stabilizer).

Good, but falls short of my needs.

  • Excerpt: I need a good 2.8 lens with stabilization for my work. I was hoping this was my answer given the industry truly dose not make a lens for the dirt track photographer.
  • Pros: Durable
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Slow Focus

VC dead on arrival.

  • Summary: VC not working. Image stabilisation did not work from out of the box. I really wanted to love this lens, but with blurry shots from the start it had to go back. I'm sticking with Canon now. The photos I did take outside were sharp and good colour, so it has potential.

... top corner less focus than other corners – probably bad copy. AF is disappointing

Vsevolod, Amazon

  • Summary: Problem with AF on 24 to 30mm and right top corner less focus than other corners – probably bad copy. AF is disappointing, tried on 450d and canon 6d. With 450d found kit lens sharper than this on 24mm. 50mmf 1.8 way sharper than this.

Naja warscheinlich ein Sonntagsteil bekommen!

  • Summary: Bin sehr entäuscht von dem Tamron habe mir aufgrund der vielen Guten Rezesionen mehr erhofft. An der Canon 6D habe ich selbst bei Blende 5,6 matschige Bilder mit und ohne den IS versucht! Manchmal... aber das ist eher die ausnahme bei meinem sind die Bilder brauchbar.

Ersatz für Canon EF 24-70/2.8 MK II???

Marcus Büttner, Amazon
29 September 2014
  • Summary: Ich habe mir das Tamron wegen den vielen guten Tests gekauft und dachte es wäre über alle Zweifel erhaben, allerdings war ich nicht ganz so begeistert. An der EOS 6 D war die Schärfe bei Blende 4 nicht besser wie mein 24-105er und bei Offenblende war mein Objektiv sehr matschig.
