All three of these have their plusses and minuses but it came down to which one fits my situation the best.  As I expected, I can see that the bulk of the Tamron would be more if an inconvenience for me than the other lenses.  I have nothing negative to say about the Tamron except for the size (for me).  One thing playing around with all three did, was help me determine the best lens for my use.  I actually had the Sony 70-300G a few years ago and sold that - now I remember why I did.  The size is similar to the Tamron 70-300 USD.

Jeff,

Thanks for this really good discussion. It cleared up some things for several of us. These lenses are all a compromise in one are or another, but we can find one that suits our needs. From what you wrote, the Sony fits you just right. Happy shooting!

Jack
