i also hope sigma bring out a 24-70 OS that follows the build and quality of the 85 f1.4

Now THAT would be something, and hopefully NO AF issues with Canon.

when this lens will be available, I hope to find a completed test which will compare theses standard zooms
- Canon 24-70 L 2.8 USM
- Canon 24-70 L 2.8 USM II
- Tamron 24-70 L SP 2.8 VC
- Sigma 24-70 DG EX HSM


Canon EOS 450D - Canon EF 70-200 L 2.8 - Canon 50 1.4

"That Nikon Guy" on youtube has part of what you want, a Canon 24-70 L vs Tamron 24-70 VC comparison.  Very in depth.

Yes, but also very amateur-like :)
I would also like to see some tests made with a stricter scientific approach.

Anyway, the idea I have made myself til now is: the Tamron is a tad better than the Canon MK1 (especially wide open), plus it has VC and it's cheaper. A clear winner here.
The Sigma is nice as well, very similar to the Canon in optical performance, although the Canon responds better to stopping down. The Sigma is the cheapest, but it's plagued by an awful bokeh. Tamron's bokeh is ok, but Canon's is still the best.

All in all, this Tamron lens seems a very smart purchase.

... though one doesn't necessarily has to agree with nikonguy's conclusion, nice videos, but he's very amateurish, I agre with Albi86 on that. Don't miss his bonus video "how to shoot a model" :-)

Esp. him saying that the vc is great for handheld video - I could not second to that, because while the frame is more stable, it jumps around like with any IS, no substitute for stabilization gear. And he only tries very few "walk in the park" situations, so every potential Tamron buyer has to figure out how much the "onion" bokeh concerns his/her shots.
