No surprise there.  But just want to point out, this is a DxO-like conclusion.  You used a 5DII for the test, I can say from experience that in many situations, the APS-C sensor in my 7D delivered sharper pictures than my 5DII, by virtue of its better AF system.

a lot of people forgot that a camera it's not just a sensor

get a sigma 70-200 os for portrait and you will get a greato portrait lens and you will retain the macro one

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Tamron 70-200 f/2.8 Di VC USD Hands-On
« on: December 01, 2012, 03:49:01 PM »
It would be pretty revolutionary for Tamron to step up and try to compete on merit alone without a significant price advantage, too.  In the US they still have the large price advantage, but that doesn't seem to be the case in other markets.

I'm certainly interested in seeing more reviews, however, particularly ones that directly compare the Tamron to some of the big players.

infact the 24-70 vc from tamron costs half the price of the 24-70 ii from canon...and maybe is a better lens in various aspects

third partyies like canon and signa cannot compete with original manufacturers like canon and nikon because peoples prefer to buy "originals" insted of "copies" (tis is the popula belief...tragic)

EOS Bodies / Re: 5D MARK III lens recommendation

Can you recommend lens for 5d mark iii
right now am with 24-105 f/4L

Thinking of below
Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM
Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM
Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM

Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM good choice...a sigma 70-200 OS is good too for the half of money
Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM ...terrible lens...if you plan to shoot landscapes go for a ts-e
Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM a sigma 105 OS would fits better

No more crop sensor for me....bring on the 5D 4 ;D

why not? you could have a decent wide angle lens like sigma 8-16 or tokina 11-16 insted that canon horror you carry in your bag  :'(

the new art is minimal and elegant but i will miss the old dark grey EX :)

anyway the latest lenses from sigma are very good

the 70-200 OS, the revamped line of stabilized macros (105-150 and 180) and the new 120-300 are very good quality lenses both optically and costruction wise.

gold rings are gone on the new art series style they actually look more like zeiss lenses now

gold ring is for EX lenses...this one despite the good build quality hasnt an EX designation.

maybe sigma dropped the EX deisgnation, but all my EX lenses have a gold ring, like the latest zooms released...120-300 and 50-150

Which part of this is the first lens in the new art series did you not understand? That would be new as in new - not as part of the old EX series  :P

... do they dropped the EX designation? i didnt know, but i hope you are wrong ;)

@twi

sigma started to improve quality (and prices) of their lenses well before the new tamron lenses

because the sigma is a better lens than canon optically and mechanically? also someone would prefere the gold ring than red one

Don't you mean, you'd rather a silver "A" than the red ring?

i meant the gold ring on sigma ex lenses (my english is limited..maybe i cant understand what you asked)

I had the 35L. simply amazing lens!! If price was near equal, why buy Sigma? I'm not put off by 3rd party glass, a I love Tokina and some Tammys I've owned. I would try to get a used copy for about 700 or so once plenty are in the market....assuming the lens is as good as advertised.

EOS Bodies / Re: 7D vs 5D2???
« on: November 20, 2012, 05:29:59 PM »
I'm sure this has been covered a dozen times before but I'm really struggling to make a decision.  I want to upgrade from my T2I but I still plan on using it extensively.  I shoot mainly wildlife, old buildings, anything in nature.  I currently own a canon 10-22, 24-70v1, 100-400L and 1 of my favorites, the 100 macro.  I love the extended reach of having a crop sensor so I was leaning towards the 7D (although I do not shoot sports).  I think all of these lenses minus the 24/70 tell me to go 7D.  I think I would miss that extra reach if I went with the 5D2, but I do like the thought of better low light capabilities.  I feel I'm a little limited on the crop sensor with my 24-70 but I can always back up. I was discussing my dilemma with a friend and he suggested a 5D2 with a 1.4 extender.  Would that somewhat equal out the reach id be losing by switching to full frame?  I would love any help on this.

a 1d mark iii would a better upgrade path

this topic would be in third party, not in eos one
