Stop down more.

Will that remove the onion bokeh?

Out of curiosity, for those of us who aren't yet PP ninjas, what's the best way to clean up onion-y bokeh?

I assume a little dab of the blurring brush on each offending onion? Or something else?

For the people besides myself who already have the 24-70L, what's your final verdict? Keep the Tamron and sell the Canon, or visa versa?

Anyone care to guess which picture belongs to which lens? Canon 24-70 or Tamron 24-70?

Sorry, but the images surpassed our 1024x1024 restriction by a lot. Can you repost, but to fit, as I think these are valuable to see?

graduated filter or brush in lightroom

With the brush, do a negative sharpness, click and gone. Very easy and fast to fix if you know how to work it.

Then why give up my 70-105 range, if in the end I am at F4 or higher anyway?

So I have been following threads on this lens on several forums and the consensus seems negative.

Crap.

Any updates on the 24-70 MkII?

Can't tell.... Too distracted by the cute girl, cute kitty, rolling? (I hope, that would be beyond awesome) cart or tray with cheese, drink glasses, and videogame controller, bottle of alcohol by a blender, and fresh bananas on a hanger. That is like 7 of my top 20 greatest things in life right there!

Kidding aside, the one on the right (second one) looks like the Tamron, but they are pretty close. I think the high ISO is holding the Tamron back a little to tell you the truth, hiding some of its sharpness advantage.

lol yes, it's a rolling cart. The wife made margaritas earlier :D

Canon on the left, tamron on the right. the canon L is on the table on the second picture.....

lol

lol there we go! I knew some eagle eye would spot it.

Ok, so the big question...

Obviously you had to walk across the room to swap lenses.. The cat didn't move a millimeter... Is it stuffed?

P.S. Your wife is cute as hell.

He's a live kitty :) Very sweet too. His paw moved under his chin in the 1st pic.

And thank you, she is quite cute.

Indeed. Multiple choices abound. Ain't life grand?

the digitalpicture has done some vignetting tests on the new Tamron 24-70 VC. Looks like he has a really good copy because I'm not seeing much at all in his results.

the vignetting issue is a little overblown, like the onion bokeh. Both real issues, but overblown. I've done 0 vignetting correction in any of my photos, and only a few on my flickr stream are actually cropped. It's one of those things that you have to go and search for the problem for it to be apparent.

real world samples wide open, no vignetting correction

After I did my sharpness test and found it sharper than the L at all Focal lengths and apertures, there really was no reason of keeping it around. The supposedly slow AF has been good enough, and no difference in keeper rates. I've got around 200 shots so far, and none OOF. I rarely get OOF shots with the L, and just havent with the tamron.

out of all the tamron's, heck even all of the lens I've ever owned, this one has got to be one of the best, right up there with the brick. From build quality to picture quality. Even the VC feels better than the canon equivalent IS.

talked to a reseller today and the guy told me that i would have a better chance to get a good copy of the Canon rather than the Tamron

over the 10 last lenses of each sold, no Canon returned out of 10, 3 Tamron back for exchange out of 10

I don't see any such consensus that means much yet...the threads run the same way they're running for the 5D3: It's not perfect in every way, so it sucks.
