Tamron or the Canon 24-70 F2.8 II? Ignoring the fact that canon costs twice as much I am debating. Tamron VC is attracting me but I have never owned a tamron. Time to do some research.
Be a nice person and enjoy life

Which was nearly 4 years ago and will probably not get as low as $799 anytime soon

If your wanting to try out the lens, I'd purchase from Amazon as they're much better on returns than best buy in my opinion. The lens is very sharp and the VC works well. View the sample shots on Amazon.com reviews for this lens. Excellent all around lens and the F2.8 makes it that much better

Having had this lens I can tell you it's super sharp, fast focus and a bargain compared to Canon's latest. It probably sits in the middle between Canon Mark I and II. I sold my Canon 24-105 f/4 Mark 1 for this Tamron.

You would only want Canon's 24-70 f/2.8 II if you're a professional, slightly faster, reliable focus, and you want to stay in the realm of native glass.

I would have loved to keep it, but I shoot primes in that range.

I shoot weddings with this all day long, it's also a tank, dropped a padded bag with a backup canon 6d attached. Body was a write off lens is still great. Only quibble is that the lens hood mount is brutal, very easy to lose if not careful.

Have been using this lens for a few years. This is an very under rated lense.

Nice lens, too much $$ for me though, will stick with my entry level primes.

More interested in a deal on the 70-200 f2.8 VC.

Speed, accuracy, both?
Does your copy need calibration?

i don't recall it being an issue

speed appears fine, but accuracy appears lacking, shot in the playground yesterday, i have very low ratio of usable picture. vignette is obvious in low light, even through my view finder. this is my second tamron, have another 90mm macro len which did a great job for me. not sure if this is just my own experience
