I too have two faster shorter lenses for indoors, this would mainly be an outdoor lens for photographing my three year old, hubby playing football and wildlife. I would love to be able to use it for longer candids/ portraits as my next longest men's is only 60mm. I expect the Canon Af may be better for sport etc but the vc for the wildlife/candids if i don't have a tripod with me. I think if i went for the Canon i would have to get a monopod too which is more money, I have not quite convinced my husband of this one yet. If the sharpness is simiar in the 70-150mm range I will go for the tamron.
