Tamron SP 70-200mm f/2.8 Di VC USD lens review by Gary Wolstenholme at EPZ

Gary tests this lens with a Canon 5D Mark II Full Frame dslr body:

"This telephoto zoom from Tamron certainly delivers. Sharpness is excellent from maximum aperture through much of the zoom range, plus chromatic aberrations and distortion are kept well in check. The suggested retail price may come as a shock for many, who may be expecting this lens to be considerably cheaper than lenses from camera manufacturers. Even so, the performance of this lens is on a par with those lenses, and suggested price at launch is rarely the price a lens will eventually retail for."

Pros
Very sharp throughout the range in the centre
Effective Vibration Compensation system
Excellent build quality
Moisture resistant construction
Low distortion

Cons
Tamron SP 70-200mm f/2.8 Di VC USD Cons
Suggested retail price at launch is higher than some camera manufacturer's equivalent lenses
