    Serious, they have 2 variants? So far, i've seen is all made in Japan. If it's made in China, i'll pass. Haha.

    "Made in China" and "Assembled in China" are not equivalent.

    And yes, there are 2 variants. Usually premium lenses are "Made in Japan" while some of the affordable ones are also "Made in Japan" too.

    tammy is cheap & lightweight compare to sigma. u can get a very sharp copy.
    canon is expensive and overrated piece of glass & heavy.
    but canon has advantage at the wide end.
    i hv no experience with sigma.

    but if u dont need the f2.8, u can also consider 24-105/4L for its versatility.

    Finally someone who agrees with me. Canon lenses can be overated at times. No choice. They force us to buy them. Unless other lens manufacturers can make a good Auto focus system on their lens, Canon still seems the only choice.


    Tamron really needs to improve its AF.

    I need the f2.8 at times. That's why I am considering that lens.

    $420 at BnS? Hmmm, how much is brand new?

    Brand new should hover around $500+ i think. There isn't a price for it, at the lens guide.

    There's a new version. 167x zoom. The 128x zoom is cheaper. If you do the calculations, it's about a dollar per zoom. Haha.

    the AF speed & build aside, the tammy can give the L a run for the money.
    but once bitten by L, u cant resist for more..

    anyway, if u just starting out, i suggest go with tammy.
    the L can wait.
