Excerpt: I bought this lens for my Canon 5D MKIII and it works great. I use it for video as well as photography. The image stabilization works great on it. It's a wonderful lens. The only negative thing is that I am also looking at getting a Sony A7 series camera and I am told this will not work with E-mount...

Excerpt: We bought this lens for use with our Canon 7D to capture action shots during our daughter's indoor and beach volleyball games. It has met the challenge once we figured out the correct camera settings to capture the action. This is also excellent to use for exterior and street photography.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh
Summary: I have a bunch of expensive Nikkor lenses but this one -Tamron SP 24-70 mm DiVC has become my go-to lens since I purchased it a year ago.

Summary: First off, this is a Beast. Heavy, 82 mm filter thread, very dampened focus ring. Walking around with this camera all day long is a workout, not for the weak or those who prefer to take pictures with their cellphones. But damn is this thing sharp!

Summary: Such a great lens! I tried the lens first (borrowlenses.com) and immediately bought it the same day the rental came in. The focal range with the slow f stop is such a great combination for event pictures where things are happening fast and the lighting is low.
