How many tanks for 8 man ops?

I would still take 2 tanks and here's why: some fights have adds that might hit your 1 tank hard enough early on (first time through/pre-geared) that healers get behind. Other fights divide your group up into your 2 4 man teams - you'll want a healer and someone that CAN tank in each group. Finally, hardmode operations will require 2 full tanks and you'll want them geared from normal mode to be useful in hard. The dps loss from taking a second tank really won't matter much in normal mode, but the geared tank gained by doing so will be necessary for further progression. So while that second tank may not feel very tank like for most encounters on normal mode, he certainly will be needed in hard. If your guild has absolutely no intrest in hardmode operations, by all means, take/gear 1 tank.
