    Default Need opinion on lens

    Hi, my friend is looking to buy a lens for his new camera. He takes pics of events and does street photography. His choices are the Tamron 17-35mm or the Sigma 24-70mm. So tamron vs sigma, which is sharper or has less problems? Which one should my friend get? Opinion needed and will be appreciated. Thank you.

    they are very different animals.

    more so after factoring in crop factor, assuming his camera not full frame.

    One is more wide angle, the other is more mid telephoto. It totally depends on his shooting preference. Both are good lenses.

    You want your friend to spend $$$ on a lens based on vague advice from anonymous forumers?

    Ask him which range he shoots more... for street, I would suggest the Tamron 28-75, though...
