My copy just came in and here are my initial thoughts:

-VC works really really well
-Bokeh is pleasing
-AF is faster than i figured it would be, and accurate
-Build quality is better than expected, expecially for a $400 lens

Pictures are SOOC

Mine is arriving tomorrow. Then I need to decide whether to sell my 70-200 f/4 L (non-IS).

Just got my Tamron! I have only taken a few shots around work, but so far I really love this lens, wayyyy better then the 55-250is I had, and I like it alot better then my Bigma for size, VC and sharpness. Here are some quick shots.

What do you find better on the Tamron vs. the 55-250IS, beside the obvious longer length? I've been thinking of buying something like the 55-250IS as a lightweight cheap walk around or vacation lens instead of lugging around my 70-200 or 100-400 that I'm getting soon.

I used to have the 55-250is and just got the Tamron. The vc on the tamron is much better than the IS on the canon. Image quality is better as well in my opinion. Construction is much more sturdy than the canon. As far as size the tamron is bigger and heavier than the 55-250 for sure but shorter than the 70-200, maybe same weight as the f/4 is but much less than the 2.8.

Yep I agree with all of that :) I find the weight and size very nice with my 60d, it just feels like I "biggie sized" my older T1i and 55-250 set up. LOL

this was in the store where I bought it.

hand held, 300mm, f/5.6, 1/15 shutter, iso 500.
I don't know if I got lucky or what....but 300mm and 1/15 shutter is just nuts

If this lens had weather sealing - I'd get it - but I think I'll have to spend 3x as much and get the 70-300 L... next yr... :confused:

Nevertheless.... "Subscribed" to this thread ;) :cool:
