The top right picture on page 3 have perfectly round bokeh balls with an aperture of f/5.6. Interesting...

interesting read indeed... im looking forward to the real world reviews, and a quote from the catalog;

The diaphragm blades maintain a near-perfect circular shape up to two stops down from the fully open state, the position frequently used for creating the blurred effect, adopted the rounded diaphragm to enable exquisite blurred-effect images

This is tempting me to cancel the 24-70 Mark II for the Tamron. VC and $1000 less is very tempting. The sample pictures don't look outstanding to me, but I would like to see some real user reviews. Only problem is I want a general purpose asap lol!

Is the Canon Mark II really pushed to July?

If the Tamron can be at least as good as the Canon 24-70L I in IQ but with VC and be $1000 cheaper than the ver II you can be certain I'll purchase one.

BUT, as K6AZ will continue to chime in......we just have to wait for real world results.

That would be because the aperture diaphragm is round from f/2.8 to f/5.6.

I'd order it, try it out, and if you like it, keep it

if you hate it, return it and exchange for the 24-70LII

Thats what I did with the 15-85....

I wish I could but being in Australia makes this too expensive an exercise. Return shipping is fairly expensive, but it's the 15% tax that prevents me doing it :(

I think the IQ will be beautiful. I just hope the low light AF speed and accuracy is beautiful also!!!

It's the waiting that hurts :(

I know I will be reaching with this, but based off the little that we know now, how will the IQ of this lens compare to the 24-105L?

The tax isn't refundable?

No way to tell but the bar is high, the IQ of the 24-105 is outstanding for a zoom. This new Tamron lens has to hit the streets and be subjected to some real world testing before we know how it stacks up to the 24-70 and 24-105.

Hopefully here in the States , LensRentals will have this lens for rent for testing purposes. Of course alot of folks will still purchase it from Amazon with free delivery and simply pay a return shipping fee back if the lens dont meet their expectations.

Regards, Ron ;)

I don't really consider the bar to be set that high by the 24-105. It is very good for a 4xZoom, but it is also a pretty old design that doesn't hold up well against newer designs. Even the old Tamron 28-75 is arguably as good or better at all shared focal lengths. It is hard to imagine this new Tamron lens would be optically worse than the 28-75.

That being said, real-world testing is called for. But I have no doubt it will do well as long as it doesn't have any production issues like Tamron has had on occasion in the past.
