Default 7d.. lens questions on a tamron

ok.. i feel that i will buy the 7d on friday.. i have 2 tamron lens that are 2.8 28-75, and 70-200..for a Sony. the camera place is going to exchange them for me towards the ones that will fit the canon..
here is my ???.. the salesmen wants to keep me in the tamron lenses. but i see that canon has IS in the lens. should i try to combine these and buy the canon 2.8 70-200 that has the IS built in it.. or will these lens work for me without the IS .. my sony had it built into the camera. so there was no problems with this.. the count down it coming..3 days out..
im nervous but excited as well.. i'm trying to do all the research now. but really running out of time

get the canon lens, it is a sports lens, the tamron is not suite for that kind of photography.

How is this thread different than the other thread where you asked the exact same question? The answer is really unchanged. The tamron 70-200 2.8 is sharp but slow to focus thus not a good sports lens. In Canon, IS isn't necessary for sports use. Which is why I bought the non-IS version - the $600 I saved went to other equipment that was more beneficial. If I shot more weddings I would have bought the IS version.

And, as mentioned in the other thread -if you want to save even more money then the sigma 70-200 2.8 is the best alternative to Canon.

Same for the 28-75 - sharp lens but slow to focus (compared to canon's ring USM or sigma's hsm lenses).
