      I also looked at the Canon 70-200 F2.8 (because I shoot on Canon) and I found that the Tamron far exceeds the Canon for image quality and built in features like image stabilization. One other very important point is the Tamron can focus on objects or subjects that are only about 5 - 7 feet from the lens, making for some awesome Bokeh in your backgrounds. If you're in the market for this type of lens you will not be disappointed with this one!

      Love this lens. I've been using it for a few months now and I am more than pleased by the quality of this lens. I use a crop sensor camera and the sharpness in the photo is outstanding. The only negative critique I have for this lens is that I hate that the focus ring and zoom ring are flipped and that the ring mechanism is the same as nikon. I've gotten used to it, but if Tamron would fix this I would give it a 5/5.

      I purchased and returned TWO 70-200 Canon white lens and both were duds. A photo store guy told me about this Tamron lens and said that the Tamron rep all but admitted that Tamron makes the 70-200 2.8 lens FOR Canon. I was skeptical, but saved $500 and bought the Tamron. I have never looked back. It's been an awesome lens. The only thing I don't like is that the focus and zoom rings are the reverse of Canon.....

      I have used this lens for three shoots so far. I have not yet made any adjustments for front/rear focusing, however, my photos were sharp. Auto focus is quick and accurate. Tamron's vibration control works flawlessly. Shooting with Canon and Tamron zooms required my getting used to location of zoom rings, which I did. Any breathing has not been a problem for me.

      I used the tamron G2 with canon 6D. I tried to find better quality as the own canon lens. Fortunately, I found almost same quality with canon and it was the best price when I compare b/w the canon lens. Also, I was able to find this US warranty (6 years!)
