Tamron 70-300 - any samples gallery?
Sep 22, 2009

I'm interested in this lens as an alternative to my excellent, but heavy and manual K300/4. I noticed on photozone.de, that it is the quite sharp lens throughout the range (most important to me), so I intend to buy one and use till the better lens will be obtainable. I know 60-250 is excellent, but far too pricey. I know, good can not be cheap, but compare it to Canon 70-200/4 L USM. It costs half of the price of Pentax. I hope there will be an real alternative for this from Pentax or any other brand.
How fast and realiable is the focusing of the Tamron at 300mm in good light?

It would be nice to see any samples taken by the Tamron 70-300 before taking decision, so let me know if you know any gallery.
BTW: one of the pictures taken last Sunday with the K300/4:

The shot taken from about 30 meters. Unbelivable how sharp this lens is (better visible in full resolution). The camera was K20D.
