Well I like the 24-105mm its not the sharpest but its such a great range and they are cheap. The 24-70 F4 has pretty much the same IQ and the macro is a gimic when your used to shooting with a 100mm L as the distances are too close to shoot anything alive... the sigma is massive and heavy in comparison and the 24-70 is the best you can buy but lacks range IS and is heavy.

I would take the 35mm as its nicer focal length than 24mm for general shooting and a zoom and possibly the 100mm…

Hard choice but taking 3 wouldn't be a back breaker and you could always choose what to take with you that day?

But I do agree why not just rent a lens… cheap then no worry about spending so much and regretting the decision.

EOS Bodies / Re: 100D/SL1 Discontinued already??
« on: February 25, 2014, 04:31:47 AM »
DR is usually a good source tho as they have most kit in very quickly after release and get rid of it as its about to be discontinued. Being nearly 12 months you would expect an upgrade from an entry level camera but usually there is a hint there will be a new one. Thats maybe what the second DSLR announcement will be later on in the year.

Canon will be still trying to sell the last of the batch whereas DR might not be able to get anymore therefore discontinued.

EOS Bodies / 100D/SL1 Discontinued already??
« on: February 24, 2014, 11:27:24 AM »
Has the 100D/SL1 been discontinued already 11 months after release?

At the moment its current status is discontinued on digital rev. Has the 1200D replaced it?

Is it just me that thinks the crops look very similar?

Nope, they are very close, distortion is a bit different at 24mm and the real difference are seen at the 100% crops. Even then it's not quite the res you need. See below (hope they help).

Thanks for the links. Its interesting the top of the image of the Canon is much sharper than the Sigma (RunDMC) and the bottom of the sigma is slightly sharper. Centres are almost identicle.

I have the 70-200mm L F2.8, its sharper than the IS version I and you can pick them up for good prices.

Love it and works great with 1.4x tele converter and at a push a 2x

At £1049 in the UK thats a hell of a lot for a F4 zoom… It better be good, makes the camera seem pretty pointless its huge!!

224
So is this a fault Tamron have addressed with newer batches?

Regardless of the warranty and customer care after purchase. A product should work as described out of the box, not need to be sent back as soon as you purchase for an updated chip to be installed to stop it draining the battery. A lens that is not a perfect match for your camera is fairly normal which is why there is AFMA. Apples and oranges.
