Such a delightful addition to my collection - Used on my Nikon D90

Summary: This was such a worth while investment. I have tried both the Tamron and Nikon 70-200 mm Lens' and I can honestly say they are neck in neck when comparing how well they do. The day I received this lens I had a session that night it did not fail me. I've attached a photo of said session.
Excerpt: Straight up... I had this lens connected to my D750 and shoulder strap. Nice and tight connection or so I thought. Some how the tripod screw connector came loose and the lens camera combo fell a few feet onto the asphalt. Then, it slid about four feet before coming to a stop.

Summary: I love this lens and it took me 2 months to review it and pit it against competition. I looked into the Nikon branded 70-200 2.8, the sigma version, the cheaper non VC Tamron version, and even the 70-300 and f4 versions. I use this on a Nikon D810 and it is the BEST combo ever!
Summary: I have had several 70-200 2.8 lenses in the past and this is by far the best.... After the fine tune. My copy was a grey market (I knew this when I bought mine) and was back focusing. Did a fine tune to -20 and it is dead sharp. Crisp for sports.
Excerpt: Got this lens about a month ago. was debating for the Nikon brand VR2 or this and tried this out. Very happy with the performance and build. will have to get used to the small zoom ring but overall this lens is well worth its money.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I have used the Canon equivalent of this lens and loved it. I pulled the trigger and bought the Tamron. I have to say I have been very impressed. I use it in my business as a portrait/wedding photographer. The photo quality is impeccable. Images are very sharp and in focus.
Summary: Since I bought this lens, my photography has improved leaps and bounds. I'm not going to contrast this to the other lenses in this focal range because this is just a review, not a comparison. I'll just say that competition is good for the consumer, and this lens helps prove that.
Best 70-200 made. Get the SP 70-200 and SP 24-70 for almost the same price as Nikon/Canon 70-200

Summary: Best Zoom Money Can buy. Check DXOmark 22mp of sharpness best lens in the 70-200 f2.8. Better than Nikon better Canon and you almost save enough money to buy the equally as great a lens as the Tamron SP 24-70.
Summary: I bought this lens to replace the 70-200mm f/4l Canon I had. I am kicking myself for NOT doing it sooner!! Honestly, I should have just saved and bought this first. It is a solid solid lens no joke. The color is amazing, it's razor sharp, killer in low light, and just does what it's supposed to.
Pros: Razor Sharp, Superb Color, Has VC, Affordable, and a 6yr Warranty too!
