Friend of mine just bought a Tamron 24-70 f2.8 VC. Super sharp lens and the VC (or IS) is very nice. At $1300, I think it's a better value than the new Canon 24-70 f2.8L II, which is nearly twice the price and has no IS. The one nitpick with the Tamron is that under certain lighting conditions, bokeh highlights can be onion-like in appearance, but it's not a common thing and easily fixable. It's about the only Tamron I'd consider buying. The other 3d party lens makers I would use are Rokinon (Samyang) for their 35mm f1.4 and, of course, Zeiss.
