Well i bought the tamron 24-70 and i am not sure if i received a bad copy. The images dont look too sharp to me but i am not 100%sure. I will post images i took later to have you guys take a look and confirm or deny it. I am just basing this on some shots ive taken. Any recommendations on how else to test this? Should i do the old brick wall test? I do have focal pro, is there any test o. That i can use to help determine? I did micro calibrate it and it did help i am just not sure if it is not as good as it should be
What did you shoot so far?

I have taken a few images of family members indoors, pictures of my dogs outside, and random items around the house. I didnt have time to upload anything yesterday but will tonight. Any things you can recommend that i should try shooting to test the quality of the lens?

Alright here are some samples. The ones with good lighting i feel came out ok but are the ones without flash or natural light look ok? i think they come out overly soft but i'm not sure. the first one is no light, the one outside is on a bright sunny day and the last is with a wireless flash

oh yeah none of them are processed, just slightly cropped in lightroom. they were shot in raw and converted to jpg. they were shot with a canon 6d handheld with vibration reduction on

They look sharp to me.
Assuming you were using f/2.8 and you were close to the subject, those pictures, IMHO, are well within the accepted sharpness levels.
Btw, I like the last pic of the cat, very nicely composed.

Thanks for the response. I am not sure if i am being too critical or not so it helps. Thanks for the comment as well
