The 24-70mm f/2.8 lens is a favorite workhorse of numerous genres across a wide range of genres, but such lenses are often quite expensive. Both Sigma and Tamron make much more affordable alternatives in the 28-70mm f/2.8 DG DN and Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 Di III RXD, and this excellent video comparison takes a look at both and how they each perform in real-world usage.
Coming to you from Arthur R, this great video comparison takes a look at the Sigma 28-70mm f/2.8 DG DN and the Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 Di III RXD lenses. While traditional 24-70mm f/2.8 lenses typically run about $2,000, the Sigma and Tamron lenses both come in under $1,000, making them quite affordable alternatives that are also impressively portable. The most notable drawback of these lenses compared to more traditional models is the loss of 4mm on the wide end, which can be a bit annoying for genres like landscape photography. That being said, both Sigma and Tamron seem to have made many smart compromises to get the prices of their respective lenses down, and they both turn in impressive performances. Check out the video above for the full rundown on each lens.
