Thank you for clarifying Talley! Good to know this is something that is normal and can be controlled through focus management. How has the Sigma 35 worked out for you? I'm thinking of incorporating it in my concert shooting (sorry I know this is not related to this thread).

Also I found that compared to the Canon, it tries a bit harder to hold the motion until it can't anymore, then you mgt get a jump. The Canon will tend to let you drift a bit more

Yes, the VC holds the viewfinder harder than the Canon. I actually perfer the VC over the canon IS.

Sigma is essentially the same.

Purchased mine from a POTN member last week.
Initial impression, blown away by this lens! What a piece or work Tamron, thank you for making an affordable pro quality lens. I sold a 70-200 F4 IS L to fund this as I needed the 2.8 for a wedding. I really wasn't expecting to get a better lens but I did. If your on the fence about which 70-200 to buy in the over $1000 price range and you don't need a lens built like a tank, your search is over. Buy the Tamron.

Some examples from my very first shoot with this lens.

How well does the VC work in extreme low light??
Very good!

Color rendition is spot on.

Vignetting is there but nothing so bad that I would change my opinion of this lens.

Those shots look great. This will probably be my next lens. The Canon would be nice, but I can't justify a + $1000 difference.

Hi guys,
Did someone has made the experience that your Canon cam does expose the pictures slightly longer with the Tamron, than with other lenses? The pictures I get from my Canon 500D are too bright from my point of view.

In addition there is a quiet creaking at some point when focusing in manual mode.

Is this normal?

Thank you very much in advance.

:-)

Your photos are amazing. What kind of light source and setup do you use in outdoor shots? Speedlight with softbox or any other light source? I've been searching this tamron and canon 70-200 F4 IS. Which one do you recommend?

You are the king of this thread joruiz! Love your style and all your photos.

Do you gel your strobe for some of the shots?

I haven't tried the Canon, but I like my Tamron. (:

These two photos were lit with an Alien Bee B800 and Paul C Buff Octobox 47", powered by a vagabond mini.

I don't know which one is better. I'm glad I went with the Tamron, I use it at f/2.8 often, specially in low light.

No gel, just the octobox in these shots, but I have used gels or some plastics to color a strobe once in a while (:

Thanks again! let me share a couple more.
