Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD SP

Pros: great VC (IS), well built, sharp enough, affordable
Cons:
not quite as sharp as Canon's V2, backwards zoom.

This lens is absolutely wonderful. It is sharper than Canon's 24-70 2.8L V1, but not quite as sharp as Canon's 24-70 2.8L V2. Having said that, I have never felt my Tamron lens this lens lacking in sharpness in real world situations. This lens takes great photos. The zoom ring take a little getting used to, but it is worth it. This lens is near HALF the cost of Canon's latest, AND has VC. Buy this lens, try it out, and you'll never feel the need to upgrade.

Pros: small, cheap, sharp
Cons:
None - it performed exactly as I expected.

This little lens is a nice one. It is sharp at all apertures and super cheap. It's also ridiculously small and compact. One of the best budget Canon lenses around.
