Still, Wombat, it's hard to believe that the Tamron was sharper on FF than the 24-105. My bet is that your 24-105 sample was a bit of a lemon. I have no doubt that the Tamron is a worthy lens for the price but it's notorious for its soft edges on full frame.

1. It seems like the TDP has somehow never received a good copy of any like ever. Look at the 70-300 VC at 300mm, it looks like he spread grease over the front. And he never seems to get around to ever testing third party gems like say the Samyang 14mm, only Canon stuff.

2. I was afraid that maybe my first 24-105 had been bad so then I tried two others and I got the exact same results. Maybe I've just had the worst luck with 24-105s and got the best Tamron 28-75 ever, what can I say.

My Tamron 28-75 is closer to my 24-70 II than to any 24-105 I tried.

My Tamron 17-50 worked out better than my 17-40L too.

OTOH my 70-300L is better than the two Tamron 70-300 VC I tried. The 70-300 VC seems to be amazing for the price but is not an L slayer (70-200 2.8 non-IS, 70-200 f/4 IS, 70-300L all seemed better 70-200mm and 70-300mm for the latter, the tamron did beat out the 70-200s+TCs though at 280mm). The Nikon folks got the tamron 70-300 vc first and had been saying such crazy things about how it was almost a match for the nikon 300 2.8 etc etc. so I thought it might be another truly stunning L slayer, this time at ridiculously lower price than the L, but not from what I could see, Ls definitely better this time.

I've had very good results with the 24-105L. Very sharp across the frame on crop with great saturation. The IS is very helpful as well

The new, yet to be released, tamron 70-200mm VC is also very interesting.

agree, on my 60D the tammy 28-75 shined, those very soft edge aberrations get clipped off on the crop sensors, on FF that lens gets exposed.

it is a very , very solid sahrp lens for a bargain price on a crop sensor, unfortunately most people dont like the range.

The problem with that range is it needs to be supported by a wide lens. 28mm on crop is certainly not wide. I have Tamron 17-50 f2.8, and I very often think to sell it for 28-75mm, but the thought of adding a wide angle lens, stops me. Besides I do not use the 28-35mm range anyway. So net benefit would be additional 25mm for a loss of 17-28mm. I guess 17-28mm loss is more compared to the gain. Otherwise I think Tamron 28-75mm is a real bargain, price vs range vs f2.8.

BTW my 100mm f2.0 is coming soon to compensate for the reach :)
