The closest for CANON would be the EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM (at about $2 400 :bigeyes: )Isaiahfortythirtyone said:im using the tamron one. sharp and light yet still feels solid. but nevertheless, i wld still suggest u go for original KM stuff, especially if the price is good.
too bad canon doesnt have a KM equivalent of a 28-75 for $600
yes, i read that somewhere too.mpenza said:KM collaborated with Tamron to produce the 28-75 if I'm not wrong.
sold my 17-40L and 24-70L n replace it with the tamron's.cosycatus said:they are the same lens basically. the tamron version can shoot in macro mode( not real macro, but allows u to get closer than normal)
Its a good lens, very sharp, colors are close to that of canon's L lens. Tamron's comes with 1 year international warranty + 2 year extended.
Going for $635 at MS color and $615 at alan photo.
How much is it in HK? Is it much cheaper than Singapore?Isaiahfortythirtyone said:yeah i just came back from HK with my 28-75 tamron. shot at f/2.8 in a variety of situations using ISO800 or 1600. sharp enough for good 4Rs. can see wrinkles clearly etc. great lens. am thinkin of gettin the 17-35 tamron to complement it. cant afford Ls la. hehe
