comment Canon 70-200 F4 L USM (non-IS) vs Tamron 70-300 VC
My only other consideration is I have seen a used sigma 70-200 hsm II (non-os), how does this compare? Is it sharp wide open? Af speed/accuracy? The 2.8 would give me faster shutter speeds indoors.

Thank you, I do also own a 430 EX II which should help, I am mainly worried about my camera shake I really noticed it when I was trying the canon out in the shop, i know I can improve my technique but thwere is not always something to brace yourself against. I found the bannisters great indoors at Hampton Court Palace :) I do have a tripod but it is not CF so is very heavy and with a 3 year old I am already carrying alot!

Thank you, unfortunately this version is not weather sealed, but neither is my body 60D so I wont be taking any risks :) I wish I could afford the L IS version of the Canon but I am looking used already unless I win the Lotto. If I won the Lotto it would be the 2.8 IS LOL!

Thank you, I do have a 60mm F2 and a 17-50 2.8 VC which I use for indoors primarily so this is not my main concern I just didn't want to rule out using it indoors. I also thought the extra 100mm of the Tamron would be useful.

I guess this is the difference between getting a candid portrait in lower light with a slower lens or not. so would I gain more with the tamron ie at 200mm F5 vs the canon 200mm F4 but no IS? I understand neither is going to be good for fast action in lower light.

comment Should I purchase a Tamron 70-300 USD VC or Canon 70-300 USM IS?
I too am having a similar dilemma, tamron 70-300 VC vs Canon 70-200 F4 L (non-IS) in my budget. Its tough as the IS can be great at the longer focal lengths in lower light to help prevent camera shake at slower shutter speeds. I would mainly wish to use this as an outdoor lens but in the UK outdoors light is not always the best. How does the sharpness/contrast/colours compare?
