It definitely isn´t bad lens. Roughly it is plus minus on the same level as Nikon´s 24-70 which has been highly regarded for its optical performance. The only problem of this lens is the price - Canon pricing policy seems slightly arrogant in this respect. Of course, they are Canon - "they can". For the money, I think the lens should be really better at f2.8, actually it should have been better than any other competitor....

Like it was said in the summary: Now the Tamron 24-70 really IS a much more reasonable choice for most Canon shooters. Yes, the build quality is better with Canon but remember you can buy 2 Tamron lenses for the price of 1 Canon - what will be more durable then...?
