I mostly do newborn photography in the hospital and some portraits as well. I Love the versatility of the tamron I have and am happy with the output. What Im wondering is would I benefit from upgrading my tamron 28-70 to the canon 24-70 (version 1). I understand its heavier and more expensive. Would the contrast,color, or sharpness be better?
Heres some sample shots taken with my 5dmk2.
Please let me know what you think
Thanks in advance
-Matt

I never owned 24-70 from Canon simply, because I'm satisfied with IQ from Tamron.
Why not wait a bit longer for new 24-70 Tamron? I'm waiting for sure.

Nice pictures, but I think you could ease up on the sharpening especially for newborn photography.

The 28-75 is a great lens. I would definitely not upgrade to the 24-70 mark I, although I am interested in the mark II and Tamron 24-70 VC USD, which should be coming out within the next couple of months.

it focuses a bit faster and def quieter and built better but... it is heavier, bigger, and more expensive.

IQ wise they're the same. i actually sold my 24-70L for the tamron bc i didn't use it much and build quality and AF speed didn't matter too much for what i used it for. i never shot in the rain or plan to drop my lens. i never focused from MFD to infinity so AF speed didn't matter.

I have both right now, and the canon is definitely better. Missing focus is a thing of the past. Be warned the brick is nearly twice as big. Quality is slightly better with the canon. Tends to produce more sharp shots due to the focus.

i don't own either but i've used both when i was helping out my friend for some paid shoots. with the canon, you get better build quality, better and faster AF and better contrast/color. f/2.8 is much better on the canon than on the tamron. it's an expensive upgrade but i think it's worth it. the 4mm on the wide end does make a significant difference too.

I had both at one time, sold the Tamron and never looked back. If you have the money to burn, I suggest to get another flash and some reflectors rather than the brick. My copy ended up sharp, but I don't see the point of shelling out another $1000 just for that. If i knew what I know now, I would have gotten some studio lights rather than collecting L lenses.

The Canon has better edge resolution, but the problem is that it also has field curvature (plane of focus at the subject is not a true plane!)

I asked myself the same question and ended up with both lens as I need a back up anyway. Will compare them once of these days when I get time. So far, I love the faster focus on the Canon but paying for the weight and size compare to the Tamron. If you have money play with, do it.

I went from the tamron 28-75 to the Canon 24-70L. I really needed that extra 4mm on the wide end because I don't always want to carry around a wide-angle lens too. I found that the Canon focuses much faster and more accurately, is much better built, and of course heavier. I wouldn't say it's any sharper than the Tamron, but it's very close. Overall I'm glad I switched to the Canon because of the work I do, but for someone on a budget the Tamron is fine.

Make the change. You will not regret it. I did. I have the exact same lenses. Your images look great with the Tamron but they will look better with the Canon 24-70. Sharper, crisper. I made this exact same switch and have been very happy. I now shoot mostly with my L-series lenses and have never been happier.
