Past trends really mean nothing. Its sales that drive a product. If sales are good, and Canon is making a profit, it will stay for a while.

AND the Nikon version as well. I may actually consider buying the Tamron in an F-mount since my EOS line is adequately covered for my needs in this range.
similar to nikon's new 28/1.8G?
Yeah, but they will add IS and charge $1299 for it.
The simplest, cheapest and most effective option is a 7D.someone else suggested the same to me just the other day!
It will multiply any lens by 1.6 with no loss of aperture speed and better quality than any teleconverter. Cheaper than many of the options being suggested here.
Thanks for your responses!
As for the bird pic- nice shot! It does seem to be a bit soft for my personal taste though- is it straight out of camera or processed? Maybe with some DPP sharpening it would be fine. I know I have to do that to a few images taken with my other lenses too.
After watching some interesting bits in a local camera store - sales guy with an xacto knife near the exposed sensor - taking my sensor loop is a good start. Also taking a few shots of a blue sky at f22 to see if anything else is impacting things. Burst mode shots, AI Servo shots.
Any publicly available 'stolen gear' list I can check? A box is a sure sign of a proper sale - but last thing I want to do is pick up a stolen one.
