I downgraded from a Canon 24-70L to the Tamron 28-75. It was the worst lens change up I have ever made. I did it to save some money but have been totally dissatisfied with the Tamron. I must have had a GREAT copy of the 24-70 or a not so good copy of the 28-75 because the IQ is not even comparable. The 28-75 has left the bag one time in over a year and I just make due with my 16-35 / 50mm combo. I'm hoping the MKII version of the 24-70L is announced soon so I can pick up a MK1 copy for a good price:D

I'm interested to hear the OP's opinion after trying out the 28-75!!!

From the numerous positive opinions of the Tamron, including mine, I have to assume yours had a problem. Did you send it in to Tamron ?


Bohdan - I may be, and probably am, completely wrong.

Good luck with it. The Tamron is not bad. I keep considering selling my brick too even though it's such a great lens because its just such a massive lens. I may go back to f4 zooms.
