Who in the hell tests a brand new 2.8 lens and doesn't post any 2.8 shots? Weird. Just about any lens will look good at f8...

Usually because of one of two reasons:

1) The 'reviewer' doesn't have a clue how to test a new lens

-or-

2) The lens sucks wide open

And now that I see those images they were the ones provided by Tamron that were linked in this thread a few weeks ago.

these are not the reviewer's images, they look like they were taken in nyc with dedicated lighting, and he is in korea. my Korean is not so good, but I think he got them from tamron, so he is just posting what he was given. makes me a little worried about not having natural lighting and 2.8 images, but maybe it just a marketing thing. string us along, build some hype, and hopefully, bang, here are the 2.8 samples.

Or the reviewer was primarily concerned with taking the images the clients wanted and was shooting them at apertures appropriate to the image...

Still yes, f/2.8 samples would have been nice...

Remember, we're talking about a f/2.8 lens here. There is no reason to buy a f/2.8 lens unless you plan to use it wide or nearly wide open. So if that had been an actual review of a lens f/8 shots would have been meaningless. Only the cheapest and worst lenses suck at f/8 if they are functioning correctly.

A good model, makeup, and lighting can do wonders! Not speaking negatively on the sample shots however I wouldn't use those as my basis for buying this lens and I'd rather wait for real world images from the public.

P.S. Does anyone know if this lens is suppose to also be a "macro" lens like the Canon counterpart? And I use the term "macro" very loosely


...BECAUSE SEEKING VALIDATION FROM ANOTHER PHOTOGRAPHER IS WAY MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE OPINIONS OF PAID CLIENTS.

I think so, I recall MFD similar to that of canon's


Sony A7riii/A9 - FE 12-24/4 - FE 24-240 - SY 24/2.8 - FE 28/2 - FE 35/2.8 - FE 50/1.8 - FE 85/1.8 - EF 135/1.8 Art - F 600/5.6 - CZ 100-300 - Astro Rok 14/2.8 - Tamron 17-28/2.8 - 28-75/2.8 RXD, 70-200/2.8 VC

I've never been impressed with the macro feature of zoom lenses. If you want to do macro get a real macro like the 100mm USM. Extremely sharp even wide open and I've seen them cheap lately, as low as $375.

No kidding...with my crappy skill, I can probably make any lens sharp at f16 with all those lights.

The farther away you get from the sweet spot in any lens the softer it will be. Stopped down beyond the sweet spot you start getting diffraction and some lenses, particularly those that have sweet spots at f/5.6 will be horribly soft at f/16 because of the diffraction. As I noted earlier, if a lens is functioning right just about all of them made in the last ten years will be nice and sharp at f/8.

Tamron USA has announced pricing and availability of its SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD image-stabilized fast zoom lens. Canon and Nikon mount versions of the lens will be available from April 26th 2012, at a MSRP of $1299. The Sony version, without image stabilization, will follow at a later, unspecified date. The lens is compatible with both full-frame and APS-C cameras, includes a moisture-resistant body, and a rounded aperture for attractive background blur.

I know on my 17-50mm f/2.8 VC from Tamron focuses very quickly and the VC seems as good as Canon's - at least on the 17-50/2.8.

Don't know about that price, though, thought it would've come out under $1000 if even just by a penny (thinking relatively to what I paid for their 17-50 VC).
