Hi All,

Can somebody give mea comparison between these three.

I want a good walk around. I am getting a wide angle to cover 12-24. So i am not into 17-40 or 17-85 asa walk around. I want a fast lens than a IS lens. so a F2.8 is what i am looking at.

I have read some reviews on canon 24-70 . its one of the best lens from canon. But i also came across sigma and Tamron.

If the difference is negligible but the cost is nto i will definitely pick an alternative.

Please do help

The Tameron is their 24-75
I have the Sigma, and it's very sharp, good bokah, good colors and contrast...

I have the Canon 24-70 and the Tamron 28-75. Image quality between the two is negligible, but the Canon focuses in an instant, where the Tamron isn't slow, but doesn't instantly snap onto focus like the Canon.

The greatest difference between these two lenses is the size and weight. The Canon is a large, heavy brick compared to the lightweight Tamron. For this reason, I prefer the Tamron as a walkaround lens. I only use the Canon when I'm doing high-paid wedding work, where I cannot miss a shot waiting for the Tamron to focus.

Here's a ink to the two side-by-side:



Hope this helps,
