24-105 f2.8IS
« on: February 13, 2012, 07:13:07 PM »
Since canon refuse to make a 24-105 f2.8 IS I think sigma should step up to the plate and make one their recent build quality of the latest lenses has improved alot from the last generations they could do well in this space.

Maybe can hope from Tokina or Tamron? :) Tokina seems to be leaving "wide angle only" kind of approach so who knows...

Canon would charge us north of 3K if not 4K with such a lens for sure...   ::)

I would devestated if it was tamron as I think their quality is horrible, sigma seem to be a large margin in front in this department, I guess we will see if tamron have stepped up their game with the new 24-70 IS they have coming out.

if canon made it I would pay that especially if it was internally zooming :( (as much as it would hurt)

I am hoping that Tamron's quality will improve over time but quality goes up, price goes up... I do agree Sigma is more close to it. Besides Nikon's corresponding lens leaves much to be desired I heard so there seems to be a market if third party alternatives came out.

internal zoom + 2.8 + IS + improved optics and I would be interested too even for north of 3K as I really like the f/4... I should try the lottery a little more frequently, want to have the 200-400 f/4 too when it comes out ;D

Judging by the exterior of Tamron's new 24-70mm f/2.8 IS lens, it certainly appears that they've put more effort into it.  It will be interesting to see how it stacks up.  Not that I think it'll be close to Canon's 24-70mm f/2.8L II, but if it's better than the Mark I, with IS, it could be option, depending on the price.

Maybe it would be too big and heavy? n it would also be too expensive.. and if IS?, It will also kill many other Canon Lens. So you wont buy many lense= Losses to Canon?

The 24-70/2.8 is the 2.8 version of the 24-105 f/4.0.

Just the same as the 24-105 is the f/4 version of the 24-70/2.8.

I know that might seem a bit strange, but there is only 1 f-stop difference.

I often use the 24-105 for portraits - I am not a lover of ultra shallow DOF so head shots are usually at f/5.6 ish

um and 35mm of focal range which happens to cover the important 85 to 100mm
1 stop is a lot especially when you are shooting high iso i prefer to keep iso as low as possible

Canon would charge us north of 3K if not 4K with such a lens for sure...   ::)

I'd pay it.

I can think of too many awesome lens combinations for $4k to justify paying that for 1 zoom.

If it had the internal zoom, I'd pay. Especially if it was f/2.8.

I took it to BM on my 5d2, and when I sent it off to Canon to get cleaned, they apparently had to replace some parts of the barrel, I'm guessing the part that gets exposed, due to it being pretty scratched up from all the dust. It's just there are so damn few internal zooms!

I wouldn't have the lenses I do if that lens existed.  I would have just bought that one and only used it all the time.  It would just be too easy, but the pictures I get now are much more interesting with the lenses I have, even though I have to spend time to swap them.

Tamron made a 28-105/2.8 some time ago.
http://www.fredmiranda.com/reviews/showproduct.php?product=242

The lens had a reputation for being very soft wide open.

But - it goes to show that an f/2.8 zoom with this range is not impossible.  Perhaps with modern lens design and the latest in high-refractive-index glass, one could design something that's useable.
