Hi,

I'm currently deciding which lens i should buy, I want to have an wide angle but since the price is that steep at the moment for it... I just have 70-200 f2.8 and 85 1.8.

Now should I take the 24-70 L USM f 2.8 or the 24-105 L IS USM f 4.0 or Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8.
should not having the IS on the canon 24-70 IS 2.8 oppose a problem?
I am doubting .... so maybe you guys can actually help me make a decision!

Either one of the 24-70. 24-105 is definitely out since you already have 70-200.

If you are not going to use the picture as wall-paper, you will get excelentt sharpnes and other IQ demands from all of them.

The question is if you A: need f.2.8 or B: need 105mm.

You can narrow the question down to those two.

For my need 24-105 is perfect. For those pictures where more is needed, I bring out a Prime. Wich give alot more help in bad light condition, and much bether image qualitity than 24-70. 24-105 is for me the always on lens, and I am using it at the Wide Angle and at 105mm the most. Between that much less.

The Prime I use, is a Walimex 35mm 1.4 (Samyang 35mm 1.4). You can get both a 24-105 and a Walimex for almost the same as a canon 24-70.

But of course it also depends on what camera you are using. If you have a crop, then there is ALOT of other lenses you should look at before you pick one of those three. canon 15-85, canon 17-50 f2.8 are my favourites.


Living in Austria, I am so glad that there is stuff like Gimp out there...
I am a happy giver, so if you find any misspelling in my text, you can keep them... :)

Formal studio portraits or casual shots of people?
Which camera body?
What is the use of the photos?

If you're doing commercial work in a studio, f/2.8 may be too shallow DOF to produce an image clients are happy with. If you're shooting at f/5.6 or f/8, then any of those lenses are just fine.

If you're on a crop body, 24-70 is enough. On a FF body, the extra reach of 105 is beneficial and the shallower DOF makes the f/4 opening workable.

For portraits you don't need bitingly sharp images. Get the image in focus, truly in focus, and you'll have enough sharpness for any use.
