Is there that much difference re the use/quality of lens...considering there is such a price difference

i have used the 50-300 vr nikon on the ft1, my father in law owns the lens, the vr isnt as good as the one on the nikon 70-300 vr, it is isnt as sharp and is particularly bad in low light acquiring focus.

One advantage is that it is considerably smaller and lighter than the 70-300

Personally I would rank them in the following order, 1. Tamron 70-300 vc, 2. Nikon 70-300 vr and 3. Nikon 50-300 vr
