I read the Tokina is very sharp, are there any comparisons available on all specifications ?
Maybe it's a bit like the Tamron 24-70 2.8 but without VC then.

I've seen a few reviews that put the Tokina IQ above the Tamron 24-70VC, and near the Canon LII. All reviews claim the focus is REALLY slow. Google is your friend.

Thanks Tom, you are my friend too :-D
As snappy AF is important too i'll stick with the Canon 24-70 2.8L MKI.

In past I tried the Tokina 24-70 2.8 VC, great VC for filming, but re-sold it due to the unhandy backward zoom.

A new Sigma 24-70 2.8 Art OS would probably be too expensive in future.
Primes of +-900 are allready expensive, but double the price standard 24-70 zooms of +-1800 are over the top...

Did you mean Tamron? I tried one of those, too. I sold that lens really quickly. I didn't mind the backward zoom too much. I couldn't get used to using something that BIG and that SLOW. I use primes if I need aperture.

Yes I meant I had the Tamron in past, I didn't find this one big or heavy in comparison with the Canon 24-70 2.8 BRICK I re-bought :-D
Normally I'm also a prime-freak (I started with all primes and I still have more primes than zooms).

But for events, citytrips, partyshoots a 24-70 is more handy to have the 24mm & 70mm.
I had to do a shoot of a miss election this summer, I could get the whole group of misses on the picture with my 24mm, the other photographer with his 28mm had no space enough and didn't have the picture.
Also for allround citytrips the 24mm on FF is nice for buildings,...

Sometimes I doubt to rebuy the 35 1.4 Art but i'll stick with the zoom for the moment, the 24mm is too wide as allround prime :)
