Part Tamron 70-300VC for the new Nikon 70-200/4?
Oct 24, 2012

To be honest, I am not a real photographer... playing the gears is about as important as getting good picture out of them...

I was a Canon 70-200/4 IL user, and actually hold on my Canon gears for this this for few years after I got the Nikon D700;

I am a Tamron 70-300VC user and quite happy with the VC.  I got some clear hand held shot at 1/15s 300mm, which is impossible with other lens at that time; The image out of this lens, however, is somewhat flat compare with the Canon 70-200/4, but I can't quantify it, or clearly articulate the difference.  It just look different and less pleasant to my eyes.

Looking at the MTF of the new Nikon 70-200/4 VR seems at least match the Canon's, if not better, and the VR is better on paper...

Anyone else struggle about this as well? Too bad we have choice
