Ich hoffe, das Gesieze war nur Spaß... ;)
Langsam bin ich durch mit dem Linsenkauf, mit dem Bestand kann man für's Erste vorzüglich arbeiten ;) So einiges an redundantem Glas wird demnächst einer gewissen Konsolidierung zum Opfer fallen.

Do you prefer this one over the canon 70-300 IS, that you also seem to have (had)?

As a matter of fact I do! My sample of the Tamron 70-300 is much sharper and more contrasty than my previous Canon. Not to mention the better stabilizer, better build quality, better price, faster autofocus, and internal focusing. Judging from other photos on the internet, there must be a few better Canon samples out there which are on par with the Tamron in terms of image quality though.

Thanks - good to know. I have experience with an older Tamron SP24-135,
which is puts in a very decent performance optically, but whose AF is slooooow.
Tamron has taken their time to do something about that drawback of theirs,
but seem to have addressed it lately with their new USD AF.

Yeah, the USD is a pretty neat new development, it's pretty quick and quiet. I really hope they begin incorporating this into all of their new lenses. The conventional AF motor on my old Tamron 17-50 VC used to be very noisy and rather slow, that's why I ended up with the Canon 17-55 IS USM. And of course it's better optically :)
