A Canon 70-200 f4 for a tamron 70-200 f2.8
Using on a t3i crop
I wouldn't, no.
I would keep the Canon 70-200 f/4, unless the Tamron was the $1500 Tamron SP 70-200 mm f/2.8 DI VC.
Nope, you do the math, you get what you pay for.
Non is for both lenses
Any other thoughts?
no trade if the tamron is non IS. canon is sharper, and has better resale value too.
You have to know more about this deal. First off, trading a Canon EF 70-200 f4L usm lens for a lens with f2.8, you are only gaining 1 f stop. You are considering a trade with a gain of 1 stop, and OK image quality, for a lens with excellent image quality, and Canon "L" quality build. It's like trading California Chrome, for a mule.
