Excited to see some real world samples of this lens. Have been considering the Canon 10-22 on my 70D for quite some time now.
As an owner of both, with little experience with the Tamron yet, and years of experience with the 10-22, I would have to recommend the Tamron without hesitation if you are not in the used market. Even if you didn't pay $150 more for the Canon, the Tamron is a better lens, with less distortion, better weather sealing, and four-stop VC. I don't know if there is a photo sample thread for this lens here yet, but there are numerous reviews out there with lots of examples. I don't make video with my DSLR much, but the video people seem very excited about this lens. The new HLD motor is apparently very quiet and responsive when making video.
Now, as someone who will be selling his 10-22 in the near future, that lens can be a great bargain used!
