I did a while back try the Canon non L version and thought the auto focus speed was agonizingly slow. I ended up buying the Tamron and find it is quite acceptable for my purposes - focus speed is fine, sharpness is fine, stabilization is good. Samples from mine and the 7D are at: http://jwhphotos.zenfolio.com/p540996682

It looks like you are getting quite sharp shots at 300mm at F6.7. so you are not having to stop down too much.  Nice work.  Are most of your shots handheld/tripod or both?
