Has anyone looked at the Tamron SP f2.8 70-200 as an alternate for the Canon 70-200 f2.8? I don't believe its IS but I've read the quality is pretty good. Has anyone ever tried it?

Regards,

John

I got this info from Tamron website just in case you don't have a full framed camera   

Focal length range of 70mm medium telephoto to 200mm telephoto when mounted on full-size format SLR cameras and a focal length range from 109mm to 310mm* ultra telephoto when mounted on a DSLR camera.

The Tamron is a bit sluggish on the autofocus. The Sigma version is a better performer in this respect. Image quality is a tossup between the two, All depends on what you shoot and how you shoot. The lenses are both in the same ballpark pricewise. I think the Tamron is a little cheaper.
