I'm hoping for something in that 10/14-24 range also...to fill in that bottom end gap.  There is the 16-35, but doesn't fit in as nice. ;)

16-35 on ff is as wide as the much praised 10-22 ef-s thing

True.  Canon needs their own 'Holy Trinity'. ;)

holy trinity.... :D

i have some nikon friends that use this

Heh yep, Nikon has it first.  Damn, lol.

they are crazy :D

There are numerous stories about the importance of AFMA. In the mean time, you should read the articles about "lens softness" on this website and also those about using AFMA (auto-focus micro-adjust)

Thank you so very much for pointing out afma for me - however, I think I have understood the general concept, so no need for patronizing.

What you may not understand: even if a lens needs afma, it's bound to focus *somewhere* like in the afma test strips. So I'm interested how afma can improve a lens that it isn't sharp *anywhere*?

so afma could make a soft lens, less softer, and it can make a sharp lens more sharper.

we are afraid you havent a camera to tru this out

and it has to cost less than 1000€ to be competitive  ::)

so let's start with a price list

xxxxD 400€
xxxD 700€
xxD 999€
XD 1500€-5800€

it doesnt make sense

Into the sun
Oooooooh! Lovely! I would love to learn your technique if you can share it.

A big ass reflector...

Green screen and a good sky image

i tought the same...looks too extreme

141
they havent any FF lens and co-develop with tokina aps-c lenses from a while...so it's unlikely

Tally up the recent blows to Canon on 3 major projects

1) Nikon D800 is better than the 5D3 in almost all aspects, even video.
2) Very overpriced Canon Cinema division got destroyed at NAB by Black Magic and Sony who stole all the buzz.
3) Now Tamron fills the I.S. niche that #1 feature in the 24-70 that Canon customers were begging and pleading for, but Canon failed to deliver.


so i guess Canon will shut down and exits the camera, lenses and video to focus on printers soon...lol

Good photographers can somewhat compensate using HDR techniques, but the facts don't change that 5D Mark III has much lower DR than the competition.

I don't know why people are saying only landscape needs high dr - as soon as I'm shooting an animal with black & white fur or trying to raise the shadows I'm always wishing for more dr no matter what the scene is.

Canon raw files are said to have more potential for highlight recovery than Nikon, and while I cannot make the comparison myself Lightroom is certainly able to recover a lot with ettr images without using hdr - but it's annoying to to this with every second shot.

just because landscape photographer doesnt need a very reactive af/camera like the 5dmk3, but are more interested in DR/resolution of the sensor.

yes it seems canon in test has and edge in highlight parts of pictures, but maybe wsiht acreful underspose you can get better overall results with the d800 sensor; someone would try with both sensors

@kriptikracing

get an all-around zoom to start; better to get a fast one like a 17-5x f/2.8 stabilized

+1....but budget is an issue here

i would buy a sigma 17-50 os because i like the brand (and also a risky life in AF), but he can get also a used 17-55 canon if he is patient.

maybe for him is better 17-85 is that's very cheap (i know 15-85 is a better lens but the price is quite high ) and a fast prime for indoor shooting, thern he could resell them a buy somthign that will feed better his style of sthooting.

lenses are not like a smartphone or other consumer electronic products that loose their value in very short time

and it's beaten by tokina and sigma latest wide angle aps-c zooms...so sigma and tokina are better than canon and nikon in order to deliver aps-c wide zooms?

That's not my point. I am trying to repudiate the common belief that Canon is incapable of producing decent wide angle lenses.

yes i know you didnt want to say that...i tried to advance one or two step further reasons of your, in my bad english (sorry but i am italian and i am not talented for foreign languages)

The fact that Canon EF-S 10-22 beats the c**p out of Nikon DX 10-24 gives us some hope that Canon will be able to pull off some magic with this rumored 14-24. Canon's EF-S 17-55 f/2.8 and recent EF 24-70 f/2.8 II further prove they are capable of great things.

The only issue as far as I can tell is cost. :)

and it's beaten by tokina and sigma latest wide angle aps-c zooms...so sigma and tokina are better than canon and nikon in order to deliver aps-c wide zooms? dont think so; it depens which are specs/target price they want to deliver to market.

when they wanted to deliver a superior 70-200 they did, i amconfident they are doing with the new 24-70 and maybe they will do with a fast wide angle zoom...of course the superior quality comes at a PRICE, but this is true for every manufacturer

All junks

lol… oh gosh, and someone said i am a canon troll :D
i hope you are kidding

we call a joke because we were very disappointed when it come out, really a step back from 50D

buying 2day it's really foolish for someone that is staring with photography, infact
all advantage except ergonomics over the rebel line are gone, and at the same price you can buy a nikon D7000 (slightly more expensive) or a pentax K5 (less expensive)

LOL...you gotta be kidding right? pentax??? What are you going to do with lenses??? Let me guess, Tamron and Sigma  ;D ;D ;D

and pentax for sure...tokina lenses pratically...so?

Lenses / Re: Looking for reviews of the Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8
« on: June 16, 2012, 01:36:38 AM »
I realize there are two versions of this lens (with and without image stabilization),  so thoughts on either would be appreciated.  To begin with, are Tamron lenses any good?  I see they are much less expensive that Canon or Nikon, or even Sigma ...  That usually does not bode well.

Thanks,
Mark L.

the build quality of the lenes isnt at the top, but they shoot good photo like others.

i would prefere the sigma 17-50 os
