Is my Tamron 70-300 VC matching my Nikon 300mm f/4 AF ED?
Mar 13, 2012

I recently purchased a Tamron 70-300mm VC and I'm pretty impressed with it thus far. I recently started comparing it to my Nikon 300 f/4 AF ED which I purchased used about two years ago.

To test them I shot a brick wall (sorry if you shun the brick wall test but I needed something static) several times with each lens wide open and picked out the best one. I then cropped each photo to about 50%. Both are JPGs right from the camera (D200) with no other modifications.

To me they seem just about even but I wanted others opinions as well.

Thanks,
SP
