Excellent alternative for Canon L
from Atlanta, GA
I recently bought a Canon 6d and got the 24-105 F4 L lens with it. After using it for a few weeks, decided that I needed the f2.8. Sold the Canon lens online and bought the Tamron. Was concerned about quality issues but mine turned out to be an excellent copy. Love it. I have been playing it ever since I got it and have gotten some gorgeous pics with it. Well constructed, decently fast and very sharp. Perfect walk around lens. Great for indoor use, the image stabilization coupled with F2.8 works really well for videos especially in low light. This one is a keeper.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Definitely a winner!
This Tamron lens is more than suitable as an alternative to Canon's flagship 24-70 f/2.8 II. The lens is solid, well built, tack sharp, and has the benefit of IS! Images produced have wonderful color and clarity. Focusing is generally not an issue - I use center point focus - and even at 2.8 my images have come out clear and sharp. Compared to the Canon lens, I don't see any reason not to get this Tamron lens!
Great mid-range zoom lens!

Solidly built; especially like the large aperture, the weather seal, and the VC. A little heavy, even though that's something I expected.

A lot of hype but marginal results
from Potsdam, NY
I bought this for shooting indoor equestrian events with my Canon 60D. Lighting is usually nominal at best. In low light the lens tends to hunt more than my Canon 85mm 1.8 and the AF isn't fast enough to keep up with moving subjects. At full aperature the results were not sharp. The lens was sharp at F8 in full sunshine but I have less expensive lenses that produce similar results. I expected better results from a $1000.00 plus lens.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This is a great lens. It's sharper than both my 24-105 F4L and 17-40 F4L Canon lenses at the same focal lengths. Ultrasonic Autofocus is fast and quiet. With the F2.8 it's great in low lighting. At over a grand less than the comparable (and at this point unavailable) cannon 24-70 F2.8 it's a steal.It's a big lense, if you're used to kit type lenses. It's pretty close to the same size as the 24-105 F4L Canon. I didn't put that in as a con because that is typical of high end lenses. I was a little worried about spending this much on a off brand lens but did it anyway and am glad I did. It has the same dust seal as my L series lenses. Other than missing the red line around the front I like it every bit as much as my Canon lenses.
