Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD
« on: June 02, 2012, 11:25:40 PM »
Amityville hosts a small heritage fair every year, I was out with the family and had the new Tamron 24-70mm, I took a bunch of shots, they have a few old cars on display.

I took them in a rush because the family preferred the vendors, I did some post processing to make them pop.

Thanks for viewing, hope you enjoy them.

last one of the couldn't make up my mind, sorry to clog it up with edited shots but I feel edited or not these are samples taken with the stated lens.  On the last 5 I was torn after I took a deeper look at todays shots,

I picked up the Tamaron 24-70 F/2.8 Di VC USD after renting it for a couple of days and was so pleased by what I saw I picked one up too.  Normally I am a red ring snob but this lens is so good at what it does I have convinced some other professional buddies to pick it up too after they saw the shots it was capable of producing.  Thanks for sharing.

I thinking of getting this lens on my 7D instead of the 24-105L or the EFS 17-55.

I'm no pro and just barely starting into Photography. I just want to take some nice and awesome shots.

What do u guys think? Is this worth the price or just spend a little extra $$$ for the canon version? The Version II is just way out of budget for me. Rather spend that kind of money on the 70-200 L f2.8 IS USM II. JMHO

Well, depends what you shoot the most. The difference between 17mm and 24mm is pretty big, so, I'd say the choice would be between the 17-55 and Tamron 24-70. Then its just a matter of whether you need the wide end (landscape, larger groups, etc) or the longer end (portraits, etc).

No point in spending more for the old Canon version when it lacks IS, and when everyone is saying the Tamron is sharper.

Are these shots in HDR? Some of them look like they were? As noted above, I like the first B&W also.

Thanks

I´m interested in Tamron 24-70, too. I downloaded some of your pics because i wanted to check which Camera  and Settings to improve myself. Your Exif-Data say you used a Sigma 24-70 f/2,8 IF EX DG HSM.... just wondering.

Regards

I bought this lens as standard zoom for my 5D Mark III and found it to be very satisfactory. Let's see something different than cars.

Two portrait shots. I prefer the 100mm 2.8L for that but when space is limited this also works.









And this one is pseudo-HDR.
