I am heading to India in February and want to reduce the amount of camera gear that I am carrying. Ideally I would like to travel with only one lens....but I might also take my Canon 24-105. My goal is to be able to just pull out my camera and shoot, not muck around changing lenses in the street.
I have a Canon 5D and I am considering buying a multi-purpose zoom lens.
I have looked at both the lenses. The Tamron is much smaller, lighter and cheaper... the Canon is not as compact, quite heavy and x3 the price.
A couple of questions - does the Canon EF 28-300 replace the Canon 35-350? The EF 28-300 doesn't appear in the EOS online brochure?
Has any one used the Tamron...what is the quality like? Is the 6.3 vs 5.6 at the longest length going to be noticeable.
What is the Canon like?
Does anyone have any other suggestions?
