    Sure, one has vibration compensation. Read the details on the tamron website. Will only take you basic effort, common sense and reading ability.

    DI-II is crop. DI is full frame. VC is stabilisation. It should be Di-II VC OR Di-VC, not Di-VC II.

    if you have no clue what you want to buy, don't buy. Those that you listed does different stuffs. it's like 50mm vs 28mm vs 16mm vs 11mm, so what do you want/need?

    I think it will be like he said, all lens are good. Even all cameras are good, if you play within their limitations, this applies to the lenses as well.

    Also, you have yet to specify what you will be shooting. If you have some form of stuffs that you shoot, you should provide some details, we are not mind readers.

    Such "basic" details should include:
    - What do you currently shoot
    - What do you currently own (lens in this case)
    - What is it you find limiting that you want to get a new lens

    Good for us has nothing to do with what's good for you. Good for me is:

    - Zeiss 24-70 ssm
    - Zeiss 135MM f/1.8
    - Sony 70-400 G


    I suggest you learn how to make your own decisions based on your needs and after reading reviews.

    Lenses good for Catchlights will be totally useless to you, because he uses Nikon.

    You left out the wide angle perspective leh. Haha!

    16-35 f/2.8L II
    24mm f/1.4L
    35mm f/1.4L

    For telephoto, can consider:
    200mm f/2L
    300mm f/2.8L
    And of course, the 400mm, 500mm, 600mm monsters. Hehe!

    there is a very long list of Good Nikon lenses and third party lenses with Nikon mount which I like to have.
    but that is rather impossible to own all of them, and it is also meaningless if I not able to utilise them.

    so I only can buy what I need the most, and all these are my money lenses.


    you should get the lenses which you need to the most, not because of somebody says these are good lenses.
    if you have no ideal of what you need, probably you don't need it at all, than buy it for what?

    but if money is no issue to you, and owning all them will make you happy, than just go ahead and be merry.


    hope this help.
