So it’s getting close to upgrading lens time.. I won’t be able to do it till Jan, but I had a taste of my friends 70-200 2.8is canon version and can see how that improves my shots in the areas that im looking for improvement. Im basically only using my 50mm prime.. I also have my 55-250, but rarely use it and would sell it. After reading and watching reviews I have noticed that the Tamron 70-200 2.8 VC holds its own very well. Especially with the savings I would get over the 2.8 Canon 70-200 I could invest that in other areas.
I have seen some inamges of the Tamron and they look respectably sharp. Am I missing something or is there a F4 Tamron? Also, I know others have said that the Canon 70-200 f4 IS is very sharp for what it is and that most don’t need 2.8. My biggest thing, just like everyone else, are sharpness (of course) and a shallow DOF.
So that’s where im at:
Tamron 70-200 2.8 VC or
Canon 70-200 f4 IS
I do like have a very shallow depth of field, but does anyone have a decent portrait example of the canon at f4? Also, I (may) be able to sell my 60D and pick up either a 6D or whatever FF is close enough and not too expensive.. Would going from the 60D to the 6D be a big enough improvement to warrant the change ro do I wait?
