Excerpt: As a photo enthusiastic, I wanted a zoom lens wide aperture for my Canon 7D. I tried the Canon 70-200 f4 IS but did not like the sharpness. This lens works as a charm in terms of image quality and sharpness. The bokeh is beautiful. The IS is smooth and silent.
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Sharpness, Strong Construction
Summary: I am new to photography but have had great success shooting both indoor and outdoor sports with this lens on my Canon 70D. It is a little long for using in a high school basketball court, but it works as long as I position myself right. Photos are clear and sharp, even with fast action.
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.
Summary: I've only used it at a small graduation ceremony yet, but I'm in love with this lens. The bokeh wide open is beautiful, nice round balls. You can see some vignetting but that's expected with any long zoom. The lens is very sharp in the center from what I can tell. Super fast, super nice.
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.
