The new battle of the pro standard zooms!
#21
Indeed, the two 16-35mm lenses, the 24-70mm f2.8 and the 70-200mm f2.8 II are very good zoom lenses. But the new Nikkor 70-200mm f2.8 E is now even better than the Canon counter part, and the Tamron 24-70mm offers IS. There is always something to complain about  B)

  Mixed opinions on the 70-200mm lenses, the Canon still holds up best at the long end, but maybe the VC/VR is the trump card here!

 

  Speaking of Canon temptations..... a white Canon EF 300mm f/4 USM L IS came up on the bon coin for 300 euros.....a bargain!...I almost got sucked in, needless to say the seller was bombarded with calls, it would have been worth buying a Canon body at that point.

Whoa, that indeed is quite the bargain! I'd jump on that lens too.

#24
Ditto, if nothing else it could've been resold for twice that amount down the road. It's either a case of criminal stupidity on the seller's part, or there's something fishy about the lens (stolen / broken / waterlogged etc.)

    Well the final result of the shoot is rounded up by this video:

   The Tamron pips it overall....if I were looking for a 24-70mm F2.8 the Tamron G2 would be it!

 

           ...........grey market (eglobal)  €1,000 

 

           ........... official market (FNAC) €1,400
