i am considering buying a used 5dmk2 (getting lower prices, and when the mk3 will come out will even be lower..) - right now i am using 28-75 tamron and afraid it could not handle the 21 mp. what do you think? someone has experience with this combo? maybe i'll just go for a 5dc but the video is really a charmer......
First of all, look at my sig. I own the 5D. I have owned the Sigma 24-70 EX, Canon 24-70L and Tamron 28-75 Di. In that order. If I had it all to do over. I would go straight to the Tamron.

Full frame 21 MP cameras DEMAND the best glass and I would not insult it with anything that was not Canon and did not have L after its name and even then preferably a prime.
Really, a lenses resolving power stops a 12mp? I know of no camera that out-resolves a good lens. De-fraction is more of a problem than resolution in my mind.
caveat, if you are shooting professionally. You would consider the Canon first for the following reasons.
1. It zooms inward, making the hood perfect over all its range.
2. Its canon so canon will not blame the Tamron for any problems you have.
3. You have big muscles as it weights a full pound more than the Tamron.
