I'm sure most of us wouldn't even be talking about this lens if Canon offered one. Even if it was $2000

Well, maybe *most* of us - but given the choice, with my budget I'd still get a 35L + Tamron 24-70is for the price of ob one Canon 24-70ii ...

Yup!

Tamron are packing a lot of value into their lenses, more so than Canon.
