    Hello,

    was wondering if anyone tried or have this lens yet? Went to B&H but didn't have it in store for me to try it on. Wanted to know how this compare to sigma's 70-200mm f/2.8 II DG Macro HSM & 70-200mm f/2.8 DG Macro HSM.
    which I haven't tried either.

    just in case , I'm using it on 5D. Any comments will do. thanks in advance!!

    The lack of a fast AF motor scares me on a lens like that. I have the Sigma 70-200 w/ HSM and love it.

    Agree... tamron should do something about their AF motors! The have great optics, but AF noise and speed mostly is quite bad!
