Burst Mode problem ?
Aug 13, 2012

Just got the Tamron 70-300 (couldn't resist that $100 rebate) but I am having an issue I didn't anticipate.

With VR on, I can't get a series of sharp shots in burst mode. It's worse the longer the lens gets. The first will be fine, but the rest not so good.

Is the camera frame rate "faster" than the lens can handle to AF and stabilize; is this typical for stabilized telephoto zooms? If so, I guess I'll have to give up burst unless I'm willing to use a tripod and turn off the stabilization?
