Re: IS and image quality

I suspect you are right.  Given the apparent difficulty of getting edge-to-edge sharpness in shorter lenses anyway, it seems that adding an IS group would be more of a problem there.  That, combined with less need for IS at shorter focal lengths probably limits its utility in that area.  I suspect (as you pointed out) that is the reason Canon went non-IS on the 24-70/2.8 II; it will be interesting to see how that works out for them.  It works out so well on my 17-55, it is hard to image giving it up in that range.  If I had Keith's problem (having to deal with a new 5D3), I'd have to take a long hard look at the Tamron.
