I currently have the Tamron 17-50 2.8 VC, I find that SOOC it tends to be lacking contrast and saturation, yes this can be corrected in PP but I wondered if anyone had compared to the Canon? The other negative is it is beautifully sharp from F4 onwards but very soft at 50mm and F2.8, how is the Canon in this situation?


Canon 60D; Canon 10-18 IS STM; Tamron 17-50 VC; Canon 100mm F2.8L macro; Tamron 60mm F2 macro; Tamron 70-300 VC USD; Canon 430ex II; Yongnuo 565ex; Manfrotto 190 classic; Manfrotto 488RC2; Hama Rexton 150; Manfrotto backpack & Eager to learn :)

I've had the Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 non-VC and the Canon 17-55 when I had my 60D & 70D. My copy of the Tamron was nicely sharp throughout the focal length and pretty good throughout the aperture range. Everyone seems to say the non-VC version had better sharpness. I eventually sold my Tamron and moved up to the Canon for the IS. I suppose the Canon gave the best of both, good sharpness and image stabilization. When comparing the two lenses side-by-side, I did not notice any significant lack of contrast or saturation from the Tamron. However, Canon lenses are known for having good contrast and saturation compared to Sigma and Tamron so it wouldn't surprise me if those characteristics were a little better on the Canon lens.

Some of the negatives with my Canon 17-55 was the size & weight, it was noticeably bigger and heavier than the Tamron. Also my Canon had the all too common dreaded lens creep so I bought a lens-band which fixed the creep issue.

I recently moved up to to full frame so I sold my 17-55, I was sad to see it go but as a replacement I am back to Tamron with the 24-70 f/2.8 Di VC USD. My new Tamron has been a great lens so far. With a 6yr warranty, Tamron really stands behind their lenses.

If your 60D had micro-adjust, I would have suggested to go that route, however micro-adjust was not added until the 70D. This is a really nice feature and one of the reasons I upgraded from the 60D to the 70D. It might be something for you to think about, the 70D is a nice upgrade for what would end up being just a few hundred dollar cost if you find a good used 70D. I've seen 60D bodies selling for $400, 70D bodies selling for $600 so for $200 you get a body with lots of nice features.


EOS 6D MkII, Tamron 24-70 2.8 VC, 85 1.8, 70-200L f/4 IS, 16-35 f/4L IS, 430 EXII, Luma Cinch Strap
