haha. but the poll is biased. More like a count of ownerships. Unless we have used both lens before, else our vote is simply biased only. hehe

Yep,quite true,but at the same time,it also shows that all these owners are satisfied with the lenses and willing to vote for them. ;)

In digital photography, it doesn't matter whether you use a tamron or canon micro lens.
Photoshop can make the difference.
But in film, there is a difference in both lens.

Pick up your choice in your mind.

Hi Guys,

I read that the Tamron 90mm length grow during focusing. It is a concern?

Do a search on google.

U can easily find a comprehensive review regarding comparison between both.

From 100% crops there, the tamron seem to even win slightly in terms of sharpness.

In summary there is very little diff in IQ, the extra you are paying is only for handling and brand.
