Please compare Tamron 24-70 vs Canon 18-135 STM IQ wise. Big difference?

24-70 - is SP glass and has VC (tamrons IS) and USD (UltraSonicDrive). The f2.8 is GREAT, the lense is tack sharp and is in a completely different class than the 18-135 3.5-5.6 IS STM. 24-70 is worthy every penny of 1300 bucks. Def as good as the Canon L version for 1000 less.

18-135 IS STM is a GREAT lense dont get me wrong, its the perfect accompaniment to the 70d's autofocus and Live View AF for video. the STM is SILENT even more so than my USM lens and the USD lens so any time I would shoot video it would be with the 18-135 STM.

IQ wise id have to shoot the same picture with both (which now I am going to do tonight) just to see how they stack up. I havent compared them because they arent in the same league i guess. but I will just to see if I made a mistake spending all that money on the Tamron haha.

24L II, 50L, and 100L All owned and it's pure perfection.
No zooms and no problems, I find I don't need the 85L II either.
The bokeh at 50mm f1.2 is almost identical to the 100mm at f2.8

Have the 4 lens in my sig and am pretty happy with them all. I want to add the 70-200 2.8 II...used to own it a couple years ago, but sold it as the kids got older and the constant baseball, soccer, birthday parties slowed down. Still regret selling that lens and hope to add it back some day.

It's interesting to go back a few pages and read what users list for their "realistic" lenses and then looking at their signature below which shows what they have presently.

A lot have changed up their lenses that they posted back then, while others do still use the same ones .

It is interesting to look back, even at one's own list. Here's mine from almost eight years ago.

I still have the 50 and I bought and still have the 85.

I've sold the Tokina, the Tamron and the 70-300IS as well as two excellent copies of the Sigma 30.

I never got the Sigma 150 macro, but I do own the 100L and 180L

Right now, the only item on my wish list is the 24 TS-E II

Five lens collection:
Have: Tokina 12-24, Tamron 28-75, Canon 50-f/1.4 and 70-300 IS
Next Up: Sigma 150 macro

Expanded Collection:
Considering: Sigma 30 f/1.4, Canon 85 f/1.8, XXX-400 (If only I could bring myself to accept white lenses!)

16-35/4 IS
50/1.2
135/2
70-200 or 70-300

With these four, you could take just 2 for any number of situations and be happy.
