haha.. bring in the 300mm f2.8...

So I bought a 7D body but now still deciding on the lens. I'm deciding between the:

Canon 70-200mm f/4L ($640)

or

Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 Di LD IF ($760)

I'm leaning towards the Tamron because of the aperture but I know the focus speed is slower than the Canon lens. So the trade off question is: focus speed or +1 stop aperture.

What do you guys suggest between the 2?
