Disassembled and Resolution-Tested: Canon 24-70mm f2.8L II

Time for action on the Canon 24-70mm f2.8L II front, the highly-anticipated workhorse Canon lens among Canon f2.8 SLR shooters. It is a double feature at Lens Rentals, where they have decided to disassemble the lens after running a few resolution tests.

The lens is available for pre-order for $2300 at Adorama and B&H Photo.

But the world does not completely revolve around Canon and Nikon house-brand lenses. Tamron is no longer Tammy Wynette, after they decided to add image stabilization to their 24-70mm f2.8 Di VC lens. See how it performs by checking out its continually increasing list of completed reviews. The Tamron goes for exactly $1,000 less than the Canon and has image stabilization. It also has an "accidental bonus", glue unglued as observed by Lens Rentals.

The Tamron 24-70mm f2.8 Di VC is in-stock for $1300 at Amazon by Amazon itself.
