About Tamron 28-75...
In reply to the_arje, Sep 18, 2010

I was fairly happy with mine. Bought it used a few months back. Lately, though, the AF has been very spotty, both on my D300 and D700, in good light. I've cross-checked other lenses, and they don't have the same issue. Just last night I was trying to AF fine tune it on my D300, and it just stopped focusing... totally lost. I'm going to try a few more things, like cleaning the contacts, etc., and if not, it's bye-bye. Third-party lenses are such a crap shoot. I think we're all better off saving up and getting the real deal.

It's easy to argue about equipment and technique, but hard to argue with a good photograph -- and more difficult to capture one .
