TWI by Dustin Abbott:
For those still considering this lens, here's my take on my first wedding done with the lens:

I have given quite a few examples and reviewed it more from the perspective of professional use in that type of setting.

Here's one of the photos from last weekend:

Also, if you are interested, here is my initial review of the lens on my website:

Ahh yes, looks good, it's either this or the Sigma 35 for me, but being able to shoot slow stopped down is certainly a good point for those group/scenic shots. It's sharp and the bokeh looks great too

Thanks.  It is when you have to stop down that a lens with a great VC system like makes a lot of sense.  You don't have to crank ISOs to get a decent hand-holdable sharpness.

What are the lens are used in the camera's?  There are a lot of different types of lenses appropriate for many different situations and needs.

Interesting review, thanks. One question though since i see you've also got the 24-105L with IS (next to a zoo of other lenses in this focal range): Do you think the f2.8 aperture makes a decisive difference for your work, and when do you still use the 24-105L at all if you are so convinced by the Tamron?
