    impressive, making good use of the VC
    it's still reasonably sharp

    Looks good, I'm sorely tempted.

    seems like the corner sharpness for tamron is quite severe from the comparison..

    It seems from reading the forums that there is quite a lot of variability between copies of this lens. If you get a good one then it should be fantastic but if you get a "bad copy" then its a bit of a problem.

    In the US people tend to try and then send back if there is any problem , but in Singapore sending things is not an easy task .

    I am debating whether to get the 24-70 L or 24-70 VC (Tamron)

    MS told me only arriving Jul-Aug period, no quote on prices as well.

    Sigh, cannot decide between the Canon and Tamron. Maybe if I can land myself a cheap 2nd hand I'll stick to Canon.

    After reading the reviews, I bought a Nikon 24-70. I don't really like the onion bokeh and the slower focusing of this lens. Just have to give up the VC.

    just buy canon or nikon one if got the $$$ and don't need VC. they are the best overall.

    otherwise tamron is really value for money and vc allow u do blur some motion of people n water w/o tripod.

    worry that tamron will have QC issue.

    It's going at US$1,300 in the USA, so yeah. I wish it can be cheaper. But oh well. It is Still cheaper than the Canon and Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8 and comes with VC.
