Thread: Canon kit lens EF-S 18-135IS vs Tamron 24-75mm f/2.8.

  1. #1

    Default Canon kit lens EF-S 18-135IS vs Tamron 24-75mm f/2.8.

    I have a Canon 7D with the kit lens EF-S 18-135IS. I am like bokehs and I am looking for a standard zoom lens with a constant aperture of f/2.8. I do quite a bit of indoor shooting, performances and portraits. I can't afford the Canon L lens. I got the Sigma 30mm f/1.4 and the Canon 50mm f/1.8. Very tired of changing lens during performances.

    1. Should I get the Tamron 24-75mm f/2.8? Or should I stick with the kit lens.
    2. Is the new Sigma 24-70mm F2.8 EX DG Macro better than the Tamron?

    Please advise. Thanks

    I was told the Sigma is a new design and has HSM and cost about three times the price of the Tamron. Is it really better? Thanks for the reply.

    Does the Tamron hunt a lot and does it have back and front focussing problems? Are the bokehs beautiful?

    Welcome to CS Bring your 7D to the shops & put on the lens & take a few shots. Then decide which you should get according to your needs & performance of the lens whether they are up to your satisfaction
