Question.....which lens should I keep??? Tamron 70-200 (no IS) 2.8 or the Canon 70-300 4-5.6 IS? I want it to take pics of moving action such as kids sports as well as use it for Seniors on location.
Thanks!

The larger aperture seems to be more suited to your needs IMO...

You got also my vote for the Tammy. Great lens, really sharp, and with f/2,8 you can get some nice shots of your running kids.
