Excerpt: After much research I knew I wanted and needed a 70-200mm 2.8 lens for my Nikon. The only real question was whether to go with the Nikkor or Tamron. The price of the Tamron was nearly 1/2 the price of the Nikkor. i went with the Tamron and haven't looked back! It's a fabulous lens.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: This Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 is my second Tamron f/2.8 lens (first is the 17-50 f/2.8) and I could not be happier. I'm using this with my Canon D20 and use the Av setting for most all of my shooting.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Overall, I am very happy with this lens. I have had the lens for about a month and used it for both indoor and outdoor events and some nature photography. It is a nice sharp lens. Auto-focus is fast and accurate (only rarely had times where it had trouble).
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus
Excerpt: OK, maybe not quite as fast as the comparable Nikon "cheap" f2.8 lens, but a good lens for the budget-conscious photographer who wants to get professional-quality shots without a high price tag. Great bokeh for portraits, wildlife shots, etc.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: The lens performed as expected and the some. Thus is not the VR version but I had no issues with stability and focus. The images are crisp and focus is spot on. The lens is a little heavy, but I knew that going into it. I would recommend this lens!

Summary: Only and amateur but...I buy the best I can afford and I bought this lens after researching several lens and watching several videos on all kinds and all makes and finally decided to get this one as a replacement for a Canon kit lens that has a failed motor. I LOVE this lens.
Summary: I will admit this lens is not the Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 L II, nonetheless this lens still produce great quality in every image I take. I do not mind the push/pull AF/MF that I have heard complaints about. Most of the time I am using AF anyway and when I need to use MF it's just a simple pull...
