If you're also shooting motorsports get the mkii, it has mode 2 IS(I don't recall the Tamron having it) and the best AF in it's range.

112mm (70mm on APS-C), for me, is the long end of what I like to use for portraits. So a 70-200 on crop starts long, and just gets longer.

In comparison, on full frame 35mm, 70 is good for 3/4 length and 135-200 is good for headshots.

I agree. on crop 70-200 is a long lens for wildlife or sports.

Since you are on a T3i, I'd suggest the Sigma 50-150mm f2.8 OS. It's a LOT cheaper and the range is way more useful on APS-C. It's like 80-240m on FF. It covers the classic portrait lengths of 80, 100 and 135mm. It it great for sports with the f2.8 and HSM. OS will be handy for panning shots of racing.

In a year I will hopefully (plan on) going to Full Frame though. I would like to get L glass now, so I am ready and prepared for the new body with the lens lineup. That's the only reason I am considering the L glass so I don't have to buy another telephoto later on

I find 70-200 to be an awkward range on crop for portraits.

Why? the 135L is hailed for its use in portraits. On a crop camera thats 84mm

I'm with Chris on this one. I love the range on FF but not on a crop. Not wide enough inside and I use mine a good bit indoors.

OP, I'll second looking at the new Tamron. Cheaper than the MkII and about 95% of it. The VC system is spectacular.

From what ive read this seems to be exactly right. I just bought the tamron 24-70 vc thats arguably 95% of what canon is but with VC
