The only lens I have currently is the 18-55 IS from Canon. I want to get a telephoto lens and have pretty much narrowed my choice down to the Canon 70-200 f/4 non-IS or the Tamron 18-270mm, ~$600 is my range. I want to take some sports/action photos and some portrait photos with the lens I will be getting. Anyone have any recommendation between the two?

It's hard to imagine two more different lenses. Do you want an optically superb, very well-built lens with state-of-the-art USM/FTM focusing? Or a consumer superzoom with a lot more zoom range but all the optical compromises that entails?

Either one would be a valid choice - just decide where your priorities lie and the correct one will leap off the page.
