Haha I was right. <img src='http://forum.photozone.de/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Smile' /> But if I'd been in a quest for a standard zoom, I'd get the Tamron. Until I win a lottery and really don't know what to do with the money, the 24-85 is going to suffice. By the way, this thing CAN be sharp.

Honestly -> I <- wouldn't buy these lenses anyway. I'm perfectly happy with my standard zoom lens - the PZ 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 OIS, a 300EUR lens.

I never really understood the sense of "fast" standard zoom lenses. The bokeh is always soso and they are still not fast enough for decent shallow depth-of-field photography. This leaves something like press-style photography (often requiring low light capabilities) as primary application - and that's where it is used the most anyway. I would rather invest in a decent slow speed standard zoom lens plus e.g. a really fast 85mm (f/1.2-1.8) lens.
