^^ those look really underexposed, or is that the theme you're going for?

Thank you galen5150 & fotojennik. I loved the 35 I rented as it made me think about each shot but a zoom is nice to have. I have a wedding to shoot next weekend so its time I decide.

Wow, that makes it tougher.

Some pros for the Tamron at a wedding - VC will give you some interesting shots, multiple focal lengths when things are moving fast, 24mm is sometime a necessity (in a small bridal chamber).

For the 35 - Sometimes you're going to need 1.4 for the extra light. VC's great, but only on non moving subjects.

Also, there is a rumored 35 ii coming out later this year if you can hold off you might be able to save a bit on a used mark i.

It isn't and neither is the Canon.

Have to agree with Charlie on this one. The top three test shots are ridiculously underexposed, and the other three shots are also underexposed if what you are going for involved showing the individuals faces as anything other than shadowy blobs with no detail.

They were balanced in the onboard meter, I don't know if that helps or doesn't help.

Already covered earlier. "they" are Lensrentals.com, which is a pretty reliable source, and what they said is that the Canon is 24-68 while the Tamron is 23-64. That means the Tamron may actually have a slightly broader angular field of view than the Canon, it just starts and ends a bit earlier. Personally I trust Lensrentals to be telling the truth on this until multiple other professional sources deny it after doing their own testing.

Yes that helps a lot, though I already figured that was the case for the first three shots at least. Never trust your meter entirely, doubly so when your camera is pointed at something very dark or very bright. In this case since you had a fairly large and very bright spot in the middle of the frame it assumed you wanted that light to be somewhat properly exposed and so it underexposed the entire scene to make that light something other than just a ball of overexposed whiteness. Personally I don't trust the meter at all. I use it as a general guide only, but I rely on practice, experience, chimping, or my incident meter to make sure I get the metering right.

In addition, the further you go from that light the darker things are, so that also means the corners were already darker naturally because the light was in the middle. You can see in my earlier shot of my daughter how being closer to the light source makes for less apparent vignetting.

the Tamron is 23-64.

which means if you crop out the vignetting corners in PP, voila, a TRUE 24-70.

Not exactly. It will never be 70mm because you are losing part of your frame size.

However, I a, thrilled to hear this news because I can use any mm I can get at the wide end :D

if only canon would offer peripheral illumination correction support for this lens.

This is making it a hard choice between this or the Canon 35L.

So far from what I have seen I like my 35L more but it's still early. I would really like to have a 24-70 more for the 24 side and the VC is nice (works great on my 18-270) but I just love my 35L. It's going to be a hard decision I'm sure once more samples show up.

Thanks for the samples (and welcome to POTN!) but why the 24-70mm on a 60D?

We crop body shooters can't win... first, everyone tells us that FF has better IQ than crop, and then when we finally start getting ready for FF by buying a lens to replace the irreplaceable 17-55, we get our heads bitten off for trying to mount a FF-only lens on a crop body!

:lol:

Don't worry; I was being quite facetious there. :p In all seriousness, though, I'm wondering if the Tamrom 24-70 might be my next lens purchase, too. I already have a 12-24 for the XSi, so this would slot in perfectly between that and my 70-200.

And then I'd be prepared for FF if ever I wanted to make the switch. (note: not sure if I'm speaking for moda or not... just thought I'd give my own logic on why I'm reading this particular thread)

Really odd ghosting in the slightly-out-of-focus areas on these shots. Almost a double-image in some spots. Are you guys using crappy filters?
