You ask and so you shall recieve...

The order will be Canon 18-135 IS STM Shot followed by the exact Same shot with the Tamron 24-70 f2.8. Both were shot at f4.0 because the canon cant go lower than that at 24 MM. I shot three shots on each at 24mm 35 mm and 70mm

No editing just converted to Jpeg and uploaded to my website.


Now that I think about it I probally should have shot them at a lower ISO but its late and I had a long day...

Thank you. The Tamron looks significantly sharper! The 18-135 STM almost looks out of focus in comparison. Whenever you have time and if you feel like, it would be awesome if you could show low ISO comparison as well. Perhaps a bit boring, but putting it on tripod and shot a brick wall or something similar for a more "scientific" comparison.

Will do. Did this last night in the dark. Didn't want to out a flash on. Was on a tripod. I should have cranked down the shutter speed and ISO but I didn't think about it much.

I think I've settled on a kit, but it's 6 lenses.

Tamron trinity
24-70F2.8VC
70-200F2.8VC
150-600VC

Canon trinity
16-35F4IS L
50F1.2 L
135F2L L

for landscapes, I find that the 16-35 + 70-200 works extremely well for most scenarios. 150-600 for specialty occasions.

School events, 24-70F2.8 + 70-200F2.8

casual 50L + 135L


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

24-105L (walk around /travel)
70-300L (telephoto / portraits)
50 1.4 (low light portraits)

I'm all set.

Realistic, in the sense that I'm paying for it on my current income level:

Three:
Sigma 12-24mm II
Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8
Canon 50mm f/1.4

Four:
Sigma 12-24mm II
Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8
Canon 50mm f/1.4
Canon 100mm f/2.8 macro

Five:
Sigma 12-24mm II
Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8
Canon 50mm f/1.4
Canon 100mm f/2.8 macro
Canon 135mm f/2L

Unrealistically, I'd substitute the Sigma 12-24 with a Canon TS-E 17mm, and the 135L with a Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8 Art. I'll keep dreaming!

Why Tamron 28-75? Don't you find it a bit too long as a general purpose lens especially since you don't have a wide lens in your realistic three selection.
Wouldn't the Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 make more sense?

Well, I now have 5 lenses, so I thought it would be a good time to check back in to this thread and report what they are:

24-105mm f4 L IS
50-200mm f4.5 L
100-400mm f5.6 L IS
400mm f5.6 L
400mm f2.8 L IS


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".
