I have owned a Tamron 70-200 F2.8 DiLD since they came out and have been happy with the results though it was very slow. The AF recently went out and it spent 7 weeks in the shop. While gone I acquired a Nikon 70-200 VR AFS.

Below are comparison crops at 100% (or more). D300, tripod, ISO 200, first 2 @ 1/1000 sec, third @ 1/250. As they say a picture's worth a thousand words. The only place that the Tamron beats Nikon is it focuses about 2 feet closer.
