One question I am frequently asked is how does the Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6 VC USD compare with the Canon EF70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM. The answer is “extremely well”. But don’t take my word for it, look at these purely non-scientific examples for yourself. Read more Canon 70-300mm IS vs Tamron 70-300mm VC
Tamron has announced 2 new fast prime lenses: a 35mm f/1.8 and a 45mm f/1.8. both lenses will feature Tamron’s VC “Vibration Compensation” image stabilization technology and weather resistant builds. The new 35mm will compete directly with the Canon 35mm f/2 IS that was released not to long ago, with the Tamron sporting the slightly faster max aperture and weather resistant construction over the Canon. The 45mm is a rather odd choice to me – not sure why they didn’t make it a traditional 50mm instead. The Sigma Art Series lenses (24mm 35mm and 50mm) have been very successful so it will be interesting to see if the Tamron lenses will be as popular.
