I really wonder if buying the tamron and a 35 f1.4 might be better than buying the 24-70 mk2
the 35 f1.4 has been tempting me to buy it for quite a while now. knowing my luck i'd buy it and they would anounce the mk2
My thought exactly: Buy the Tamron 24-70/2.8 and/or 35L instead of one Canon 24-70ii, though I'm interested if it'll live up to the hype, too.
It's the same thing like the 5d3 - you can get two 5d2 for the price of one 5d3, two Tamrons for the price of one updated Canon lens. Now of course few people need a similar backup body, let alone two equal lenses - but it helps getting the price vs. iq/feature relation straight.
