I got that and a Hoya circular polarizer.

Thanks for for your help: The sample shots I took look really sharp.

sorry for that misinfo, i had misread the review, it was the focus ring only that rotates. in my haste i had misread that totally. thanks for clearing that up.

and congratulations on the new lens. that should work out really nicely for you, and a low light monster with the os and relatively large 2.8 max aperture. post some shots when you get some time to shoot!

I'd buy the non-VC Tamron. It's a good lens and very cheap. You shouldn't need VC at those focal lengths.
Canon 5D & 7D (both gripped), 24-105L, 100-400L, EF-S 15-85, 50 f1.8, Tamron 28-75, Sigma 12-24, G10, A1+10 FD lenses, tripods, lights etc
