Some interesting observations about AF that will no doubt convince people here to never buy it :)

Hi,
   Hmm... I don't have the problem the dpreview describe unless in low light condition.
I did a test quite some time ago using 6D at a target around 50m and the initial AF speed of the Tarmon @400mm in One-Shot AF is as fast as my Canon EF 400mm F5.6L. Didn't test in AI Servo (not sure how to measure the time taken), but I feel the Tarmon is a bit slower than my Canon 400mm F5.6L in AI Servo.

   May be should re-test using 7D2.  :P

   Have a nice day.

 this line from the review sums it up pretty well

 "I spent some time studying the images from the Tamron in great detail. What was immediately obvious to me was that I liked them a lot more than our lab tests would have suggested I might"
