Really nice work! Love the first one, the fireman looking at the camera and the blurred water and colors along with the light makes for a great image!

Thanks.  I was returning from a jog in the park and came across the fire in its early stages.  I helped evacuate people in the next door building.  (A lot of yelling "It's not a false alarm! get the #$%^! out!)  Then turned to photography.  For some strange reason I took only my 5DIII and 24-70II, leaving a 7D, 8-15, 70-200 II and 580II in my camera bag in the car...  (adrenalin).  So I photographed a fire for 2+ hours in jogging clothing with only my camera in hand.

The weather sealing on my grip for zoom barrel portion of the lens has begun peeling off and is quite loose and floppy....has anyone else been experiencing this same issue as well?  :-[

Now here is a question:  What would be better value for the same dollar amount:  a Tamron 24-70 2.8 VC *PLUS* a Sigma 50mm ART *or* the Canon 24-70 2.8 ii?

I see praise for each lens but never a direct value comparison.
