Pros: Very sharp @ all focal length @2.8. Bought it 2 years ago and thought if this is sharp I can imagine how good the canon 24-70 mm 2.8 L lens would be. Saved up enough money and ordered the canon from B&H. Did a controlled test and was dissapointed how the canon performed. Sent back the canon and reordered another exact canon lens thinking that I had maybe a bad copy. Did another controlled test and again the tamron came out ahead. Tamron was sharper at 28, 50, and 70 mm @ 2.8. Both lense held their own @ 35 mm. Tamron was lighter to carry around and easier to handle.
Cons:
Not as well built and rugged as the canon lense.
