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?

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.
