Thought I would create a new thread for the new Tamron, this Lens has me curious vs. the Canon 70-200 IS Mk II. So need a place for pictures.

Photonews.ca has a review (external link) with some 100% sample shots. Pretty glowing review, and the sample shots look good. I've been pretty well set on picking up the Canon 70-200 to round out my lens set, but the Tamron is looking nice. Will be interesting to see what others think.

Thanks for the link. Just got a 5D Mk III and interested in this lens or the Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 APO EX DG HSM OS.
Keep it coming;)

Well Adorama and BH both have them in stock. Who's going to be our 1st risk taker purchaser to honor the thread?

Yeah, tough to rent, unless you just flat out want to test it out.

"Main rivals : Canon EF 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 DO IS USM and Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 L IS USM"

Huh??  ??? :confused:

It doe's look good at 200mm. Was there a problem? (back or front focus?)
