ordered $399 Tamron 45mm f/1.8 Di VC USD

Tired of waiting on Canon for a 50 that is sharp wide open with IS.

And they'll make it too expensive if they release it.

My 50 stm is sharp enough at f2.5-f2.8 but I wanted IS and sharp wide open at f1.8

Plan to use on my 7d2 and T7i for FF equivalent of 72 fov f2.8 3+stop IS

I have the 35 f2 IS which is a great lens but wanted a bit longer for portraits

I read the Tamron is just a tad slow to focus - but overall the reviews are positive

I read I might need to turn off in camera lens abrasion on my t7i

Comments appreciated
