Tamron 24-70mm f2.8  (1 of 3)

The Tamron 24-70mm f2.8 VC has become one of my go to lenses for many applications. Image quality is great, Vibration Control (Tamron’s version of IS) does a good job of stabilizing the camera, and over all image quality is better than the original Canon 24-70mm f2.8. Normally this lens will set you back close to $1100, but right now you can pick it up on ebay for a buy it now price of $859 with free shipping. These thanksgiving sales don’t last, so if you’re in the market you might want to pick one up.
