300mm F4 + TC1.7 or Tamron 200-500mm for sports
Jan 23, 2013

I shoots sports occasionally, so I do not want to spend too much money on the proper lens for sports. That said, so far I have been using Tamron 200-500mm with reasonable success for sports, but lens could clearly be sharper. It appears that Nikon 300mm F4 + TC1.7 is IQ wise perhaps even better.

How is it speed wise? Especially if one has experience with Tamron 200-500mm to compare.

Thanks!
