Lens Options

I am looking at a few lens options and was curious if anyone had any experience with any of these.
-Tamron 24-70 VC
-Tamron 17-50 VC
-Sigma 17-50 OS
-Sigma 50-150 OS

So I would most likely either get just the 24-70 or get one of the 17-50s and the 50-150. The 24-70 is the only full frame lens of the bunch and it seems to be the nicest. Does anyone have any of these that would care to comment?

Re: Lens Options

What camera will you be using? What is your intended use?

Not much to go on here...

Re: Lens Options

It's going on a 7D. And I am planning on using it as all purpose lens. I'm trying to get a feel for if the Tamron 24-70 is so much better that I wont mind missing out on the additional range I would get if I got both the 17-50 and the 50-150. Also, the OS version of the 50-150 is pretty new and I haven't been able to find many reviews on it, so I am curious if anyone has any experience with this newer version.

Re: Lens Options

After much research, I am running a Canon 17-55mm as a primary lens on my 60D. This is ideal for my use - I wanted a wide-angle zoom, as I'm frequently shooting interiors and trying to get the whole room.

If that sort of use appeals to you, you'll like the 17-50 or so range. 24mm is only a moderate wide-angle on your 7D. 17mm is a true wide-angle (full-frame equiv. is about 28mm)

I can't comment directly on the lenses you're considering, but I do like that 17-55 and the range is perfect for many wide-angle interiors!

That the Tamron 24-70 covers full-frame doesn't matter to me; I made the decision that if I do go to a full-frame camera in the future there will be new lenses, too. I wanted lenses for today! YMMV.
