Tamron SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD Lens for Canon $689.99 + Free shipping from Canada. This is a grey market item and only comes with a one year warranty through the seller. I ordered one last week and this deal popped back up so I figured I would post. Serial number started with a '3'. I heard there were some issues with S/N's that started with a '2'.

Just a note. This isn't the G2, which is considered to be significantly better.

Thanks for the clarification! I forgot about that guy. It's almost twice the price so that's why I decided to go with the older model. DxO scores are at this link

the G2 data isn't available, but the G1 looks to be just under the quality of the Canon L mk2. I believe the build quality on the Canon glass outshines though.

I have quite a few canon L's, and a few of the new sigma ART's, and i keep coming back to this lens. Absolutely love it, but hey - maybe I just got lucky and got a really good copy.

Good you think so! I was between this and the Canon L (original) for about the same price. After looking at the DXO mark it seemed like a no brainer. I also have a sigma art 35 and like how the tamron renders similar colors. My non L canon glass was always really green...
