Is there also gonna be a new thread for the VC version of this lens, or will we just keep it all in one thread?

I would assume the VC folks would want a new thread.... dunno though.... I just picked up a mint non-VC version for an unbelievable price of $280 CAD.... so ill be posting in this thread once my lens arrives and its all mounted on my 50D!

I agree with JayStar. They should definitely make a new thread as the lens is a completely new version. Seeing as how the old lens is constructed with 13 Groups/16 Elements and the new one is constructed with 14 Groups/19 Elements. This should mean the the optical qualities will be different. So, after all that babble I say new thread for sure!! :)

I just received shipping info on my Non-VC version, so I am itching to try it out and post here!

in terms of optics and low light capability, then yes. In terms of build quality and AF, no.

To a certain extent I agree completely about comparing this lens to the 17-40L. We all know that build quality is second to none on the Ls and I know this personally from using them in the past. The focusing that USM provides is always going to be faster and quieter than the standard focus motors. However, optically the Tamron is on level if not higher ground than the 17-40L. I am only comparing the optical quality and nothing else. I guess many people are looking for that "bang of the buck" factor and the Tamron provides that to an extent that would make many people, even myself say things like, "This lens produces better than the 17-40L."

Edit:

Right after reading this post again, I thought that maybe you were actually looking at this from the other side of the coin (my side in fact). :oops: If that is so, sorry to come across as a strong defender of the Tammie! 8)
