Found this thread on the old forum and wondered if posting on it brings it to the new forum - answer? No. It disappeared into the ether!
I am thinking of turning over my lenses for FX versions and find the choice in the mid range is between the Nikon mid range 24-120 f4, 24-85(s) 24-70 f2.8 and the new-ish Tamron 24-70 f2.8 lenses. According to DXO mark the Tamron whoops the 24-120 AND 24-70 Nikons, anybody have any views on that? I am thinking 16-35 f4 Nikon and 24-70 Tammy - does anybody have any better non-Nikons at the lower end? I don't want the flare problems that I see often in images taken with the 14-24 so am open to suggestion on whatever is as good or at least close.
I may be forced to go for the 70-200 Nikon as it looks like the Tammy version is disappointing - any ideas on something close from anybody else? Sigma is about the only manufacturer I will not use.
If no personal knowledge is available then perhaps just a recommendation to a good lens testing site would be helpful.
To mainly fund this I will be selling all my other FX and DX lenses from ultra wide zoom through fast primes to telephoto zoom and I need to not spend too much so bare that in mind please. ">
