only 1 thing, it's hard to focus and the focusing speed is slow at LOW LIGHT condition. Other then that I think that's a good lens

Well, the AF motor is quite slow compared to sigma. But I'd love the colour and the sharpness of the picture from this lens.

It depends on what you shoot. Tamron is famous for its sharpness, but its focusing speed is quite slow. If you're shooting sports or events, you might have missed a lot of great scenes. Wedding is okay, I suppose. (personally do not use 70-200 for wedding, it's just too long @.@)
