Please share experiences on Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 G2


I am thinking of getting a 24-70mm f/2.8 lens.  Looking at the prices right now @ BH:

* Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II: $1599 after instance rebate

* Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8L G2: $1199

The price is close enough.

Can someone who has used the Tamron lens before please share experiences on this lens (both pros and cons)?  Knowing what you know now, would you buy it again?  What are the gotchas?
