Review Date: Jul 8, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

Pros: Sharp, build quality, colours, focal range, f2.8 in low light.
Cons:
82mm filters.

Well i now own the canon 24-70 f2.8 L usm and can say the Tamron is a fantastic lens on my 50D, is the canon really worth the extra 800? i am no pro for what i do the answer is no.
I have found the Tamron a very sharp true to colour lens, great focal range, not too heavy and built to last forever.
I have used it inside at f2.8 and did not find it soft but taking pics outside i use f4 for truly stunning sharp pics of insects and flowers and at f16 the lens makes a great landscape lens.
Huge 82mm filter size gives bright view finder but a polarizing filter cost me 87, bit steep!
I would buy this lens again if i ran short of cash and had to sell the canon L Glass over anything else out there, you can buy one for around 200-250 used these days.
