I did recently jump on the tamron boat with the so-far superb 24-70 VC. Which it seems like I've been holding out forever on a 24-70 zoom but at 800$ on Craigslist. Why not?

How does the Tamron work with outer points in servo?

The jury is still out on that. I just got it two days ago and still hasn't quite made its way into my bag. It needs a B&W filter, 82mm LEE adapter and a 82mm Polorizer before I can start bashing it around alongside my trusty primes.

Did you land on another ship or in the water?

I landed in a strange world where the ISO button is on the top of the mode dial. Of course, the most logical place to put it.  ::)

Not sure why this happened but Nikon and Canon lens zoom in the opposite direction?

Recently Canon has placed the focus ring closer to the body (200-400, 70-300L).  Are Nikon controls laid out this way?

I take it you haven't observed the peripheral point AF issues that I mentioned in http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=11251.msg311218#msg311218.
