No, but if you hum a few bars I'll fake it.

That is not an EF-S lens, as the subject line suggests.

'Di' indicates Tamron lenses with image circles suitable for FF sized sensors and smaller...Tamron SP 70-200mm F/2.8 DI VC USD
'Di II' indicates Tamron lenses with smaller image circles suitable for APS-C but not FF.
'Di III' indicates Tamron lenses for the new mirrorless cameras.

'EF-S' indicates Canon lenses with a lens mount that prevents the lens from mounting on FF without modification...no one but Canon has this mount.

To add:

'VC' indicates the lens is an image stabilized lens
'USD' (ultrasonic silent drive) is their version of Canon's USM (ultrasonic motor) drive for autofocusing; it's a quicker, quieter type of drive than other styles.

OK, to put this to rest finally, 'SP' stands for 'super performance'

One last thing. For Canon mount, it will not work with Nikon and for Nikon mount, it will not work on Canon.

face-palm...how could I have overlooked that little known fact?!

And does 'for Canon EOS' mean that I cannot use it on my grandfather's Canon AE-1 film camera?

From actually having used the Tamron lens: (external link) it can produce images such as these.

The non-stabilized Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 lens is the lightest and least expensive lens in its class for Canon EOS-mount camera. Optically it's a very good lens, but its downfall is indifferent autofocus response.

Absolutely. The OP who is a Newbie here might very well have been turned off by the rather gratuitous comments. Clearly he wanted, and deserved, respectful opinions about this lens regardless of whether he erred with to the Ef-s reference.

Well, really the small error about it being 'EF-s' or otherwise wasn't the problem with the OP's post.

The problem was that he didn't really ask a question other than "Has anyone heard of this lens". That's why the thread has run whimsical, without any real information.

"Yep, I've heard of it." would be a legit response. My assumption is that the OP will return and ask us just what it is about the lens he is interested in knowing.

What Jeffrey said.

I'm not sure if 13 responses saying "Yes, I know about this lens" would be any better. OP probably, hopefully, has some more specific question in mind...
