I know when I read the DP review of the lens that showed the Mustache affect that the lens will produce.  And with the 5D3 or 6D (which I have)  you can't setup in camera corrects for this lens correct?   Which means and I've never tried is there a profile one can download for LR5?   

Also anyone know if you can get a deal on refurbed lenses from somewhere?   Looking not to spend 1100 if at all possible.

Great pictures. Would it be a possible upgrade for the 24-105 F4 IS?

Bravo - these are some fabulous shots.  Particularly like the first and third of the series.

Whenever I leave my 5D MK III + Tamron 24-70 VC with VC turned on (even though the camera power is turned off), the battery drains very within a couple of days ... does anyone else face this issue?

I had a similar issue.  Call Tamron, send it in, and they will fix it quickly.  It needs an updated circuit board.

This is another reason why I don't like 3rd party lenses. Send it in for an updated circuit board on a £750+ lens so it won't drain my battery!! Be without the bread and butter lens... Ridiculous and if your a pro 'small' issues like this are a big deal.

I guess you've missed the numerous postings about problems with the EF24-70 ll. Many of those posters report receiving no satisfaction from Canon. I've read no such posts about the Tamron, and their warranty is for six years.

Regardless of the warranty and customer care after purchase. A product should work as described out of the box, not need to be sent back as soon as you purchase for an updated chip to be installed to stop it draining the battery. A lens that is not a perfect match for your camera is fairly normal which is why there is AFMA. Apples and oranges.

Perhaps you should have a look at this now 14 page thread:  http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=15231.0;topicseen

I completely agree with you in theory, but having issues with a lens is hardly unique to third part manufacturers.  My lens was out of my hands and with Tamron for about 8 days.  It has worked flawlessly after the fix and has been my most used lens out of a kit of excellent lenses.  To each his own...

So is this a fault Tamron have addressed with newer batches?

I actually don't know that for certain, but I haven't heard anyone complain about this issue recently.  I assume that they have corrected it.
