wow the difference between the canon glass and that tamron oof areas is massive
great shots, not a fan of the tamron shot though due to the oof areas looking wierd

Yea, weird OOF areas. The new 24-70 is said to be much nicer, see http://www.dustinabbott.net/2012/11/tamron-sp-24-70mm-f2-8-di-vc-usd-review/ which came from one of our own forum members, http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=11251.

You do notice that I used that very same glass? There is no "new" 24-70, the old one was 28-75.

And how does OOF look weird there? In the pic with the girl in the grass, the bokeh was added at the edges via photoshop, the pic with the two girls in the window has no remarkable oof areas and the flower shot was overexposed at first and heavily edited. And of course you can't really compare a bokeh from a 24-70 lens at, say, 30 or 40mm to a 100 or 135 prime lens.

This here was also taken with the Tamron 24-70 at 44mm, and I am very much satisfied with sharpness and oof quality. The other shot from my previous post has fake bokeh, so don't compare that.

Oh, it is? Hrm...I'm so confused with their naming convention :\  I had to just chat with the LensRentals guy to figure out that the Tamron 24-70 they have listed is actually the same lens, just without the full model number. I didn't actually realize they hadn't had a previous 24-70, I thought this was their version 2 of the lens, just with VC and updated optics.

I'll be using that lens (and my 5d3) for a performance this week/weekend. If it's as nice as I think it will be from what I've heard elsewhere, I'll probably be putting it on my shopping list instead of the Canon 24-70 v2.

The Tamron is a great bargain for it's price, considering it comes with stabilization. It is my standardzoom and I am completely satisfied with it.

I'm hoping so. I'm looking forward to trying it out, and probably will get one in the next 3 months, once I sort out whatever taxes will be, either negative, or more hopefully positive.

Tamron 24-70 2.8 VC USD




I love the colours and tones of this one you wouldnt want to share your PP settings would you
also the oof looks much better on this one than that previous one even though its the same lens whats up with that?

If you notice, he said in a response to me that he did PP OOF effect on that, not real OOF from the lens itself.

Don't know which picture you are referring to. I edited the first one with AlienSkin Bokeh to make it look like that, the other one's bokeh is real. For the tones I either use AlienSkin Exposure or Nik Color Efex.

Yes, I always have some explaining to do to my girlfriend after such a shooting.  8)

Excellent shots with the mk III.  Must be cold in the snowy winter.  Is it take her coat off for 3 minutes, grab some shots, then put the coat back on and heat up in the car?  Surely the model can only take so much.

Great photos using your 5D Mark III. I have the same camera as well as the Tamron 24-70. I love how you captured the composition and the tones are so nice and soft. Beautiful.

Yup it works somehow like that. Actually it wasn't even That cold that day. Shot again today in the snow and fcuk it, THAT was cold. See results later.  ::)
