dat tamron.
 
Wow, surprised by tamron...

why? It's always been rated better than the Nikons.

The only reason any review ever put them behind the Nikon is "build quality".

There are, however, charaterics of the Nikons that I think beat out the Tamrons. Bokeh quality/transition for one. Cost not being the other.
 
I've always been fond of them.

The VC is amazing--It engages smoothly and has an almost gyroscopic feel to it.

Both are sharp even at f/2.8, but really impress when you start stopping down.

The 24-70 exhibits onion bokeh balls, so it's nice quite as pleasing as the nikon, but it's also kind of interesting.

Both are smaller, lighter, and less expensive as their Nikon counterparts.

Tamron and Sigma are going to force Nikon to step-up their game; both coming out with "first-in-class" lenses that are most impressive.
 
How about the 3 Samyang primes on the list.

Both being at $400, I'd rather just stick with the 85mm 1.8G over the Samyang 85mm f/1.4.

But the 35mm is interesting at ~$400 again; damn thing is huge though and it's manual focus.
 
Also, Tamron's 90mm VC macro lens beats Nikon's macro lenses hands down. I'm waiting to see the test on the 150-600mm

The Tamron zoom are just stunning. I've been using the Tammy 70-200 2.8 VC with the D810 with amazing results. And the Tamron trinity will soon be completed, with the current development announcement of the Tamron 15-30mm f/2.8 VC.

Nikon will really need to come up with a renewed trinity to step up again against Tamron.
 
I want the 150-600 before I look into the 15-30.
 
It makes you wonder.. why is Nikon slow releasing new lenses?

The 24-70mm f/2.8 is 8 years old. You think they would have a VR version in the works by now.
And i cant even talk about the 14 year old 300mm f/4 (that didn't even make the list!!!)

Tokina, Tamaron and Sigma are knocking them out of the park each new release...

(*sad face*)
 
laurels & fan boys.
 
Third party lenses are kicking butts. :eagerness: Now people on a budget can have the best for half the price.
