I'm ok with that. IS would be great, but I would jump on this lens if Tamron releases an EF-M version!

I for one am never going back.

Life without IS is like cars where you had to change carburetor jets when changing altitude. You might enjoy having such a car available, but mostly it stays in the garage.

I get that.  In low light, where you don't have options other than bumping the ISO way up and/or shooting at a lower shutter speed, IS is a huge help.  But, for so many cases, I think it's possible to shoot at 1/100 or faster, especially when you can shoot at f/4 or f/2.8.  There are many trade-offs.  I think I'd be willing to forgo IS for a fast zoom.

And, as we've learned in this thread, this lens actually has "vibration control", VC.  So no trade-off required!
