[updated at 21-02-2017] according to readers feed back the canon image test may have some problem , after investigation seems we’ve got auto focus problem on the 5DSR at 135mm (worst at 135mm , better on 70 / 200mm ) . The 135mm result in the article are updated to the new one .

This time we are test under these condition:
Mounted on tripod
Liveview enlarge manual focus to maximum sharpness   (don’t trust the auto focus on a non calibration setup this time ,which i thought canon lens with canon body will be ok)
mirror lock up
remote shutter

Camera body using in the test :
CANON 5DSR at ISO 100

p.s. not a lab test but we try to made it better

we also did a short image test , for some reason we crashed the file of 200mm test so we put it away (sorry for that)  , the 200mm test will updated next week 
^ we do the test of 200mm already and following is the link to the part 2

at 70mm focal length , there are quite big difference on border resolution test , Tamron SP 70-200mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2 provide sharp and good contrast even wide open , and less purple fringing issue

Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM seems cannot feed the monster 50MP cmos of CANON 5DSR , we spotted resolution drop compare to the center ,and got some fringing issue . stopped down the lens did improve the resolution but still behind the Tamron SP 70-200mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2。

Following is the test of 135mm
updated at 21-02-2017 , reason stated at the top of the article , to ensure the quality of content we redo the test again, if you have any tips please leave us a comment or email us =D

At the 135mm center resolution test , Tamron SP 70-200mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2 provide good contrast , sharp image at wide open and you may found Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM still little bit softer compare to the tamron

at 135mm border resolution test , Tamron SP 70-200mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2 didn’t got advantages like other test  , Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM keep up quite well and it did perform similar to the Tamron at this range

Sorry again we crash the 200mm Test file so we will update it next week =[
^ we do the test of 200mm already and following is the link to the part 2 
http://frankster.digital/tamron-sp-70-200mm-f2-8-di-vc-usd-g2-image-test-2/

Conclusion :

Tamron SP 70-200mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2 did have great image quality , good build quality , 5 Stop image stabilization , weather sealing and ARCA standard tripod mount and it only cost  10,980 HKD = 1,415 USD , 9,980 HKD preorder with gifts , and i expected it will be like 9,5xx in those camera store after a short period .

People we suggested to buy this lens :

You need a fast tele zoom with F2.8 aperture (may upgrade from F4?)
Sony A7 generation 2 user who can have fast focus too by canon EF to sony adapter
You need a high resolution tele lens to feed your monster camera who hunger for good lens

trust me , spend money on good prime if you looking for top image quality , safe money from those expensive lens like GM , spend it on accessories , light modifier or even spend for going a trip =D

following are some demo shot by the tamron , you can take a look of it
(nothing special , just some random shot +__+)
