The review really suggested "water resist" was an advantage. In watches, however, I know that is absolutely meaningless term. It essentially means it is not made out of a sponge, but no more than that. I had a "water resist" watch stop working due to some condensation from a light fog.

I hear ya. The tamron has the water sealing gromet based on the review. Dont know how much that helps, but it's there.

Interesting. Sharpness looks good, still need some tests on the AF and VC, but 3 stops looks pretty good. Also want some more samples for bokeh, and CA/Fringing and Vignetting (2.5 stops is huge?!)..... Guess we need more reviews.

Still dunno if the 24-70mm is the way to go, or if I should get the 24-105mm (for every day use and travelling)... hrm.

You're right about that, water resistant vs. water proof or water sealed.

I think it really just means that the lens is a little bit more resistant to water if you get rained on a bit and a bit more resistant to dust ingress... both of which can't be a bad thing :p

I haven't been able to tell if it has a gasket like Canon's water sealed lenses, looks like it doesn't.

"The lens sports a moisture resistant design and a thin rubber gasket has been placed around the metal lens mount to help prevent the ingress of dust and moisture into the camera body."

That doesn't sound like the gasket Canon uses and it sure doesn't look like it from the pictures on their site which is probably why they're using water resistant instead of water sealed. Not really an issue for me as I don't need to shoot in wet conditions but it could be an issue for some.

If you look at the mount of the Tamron and the mounts on any of the weather sealed canon lense (24-70mm/24-105mm etc), the seal looks pretty similar :p

Seeing how Canon voids the warranty for all of their gear in the event of water damage, that may be a distinction without a difference.

Canon "sealed" lenses are not certainly considered waterproof.


We'd have to know the details of how each lens is constructed in order to know whether there's a real-life difference.

Canon claims the lenses are water tight with a filter. If I had one of those lenses damaged by water while shooting I do believe they would cover the lens. I think the disclaimer about water is if you happen to drop your camera in a body of water.

The constant bickering over semantics that's so rampant on forums I imagine :p

Want to know what I'm tired of the most on internet forums? People who post to threads complaining about other posters making comments they don't like in one fashion or another. I must have missed something, I thought the latest discussion was on the water resistant/proofing/sea​ling of this lens.
