Wide open at 300mm the Tamron is tack sharp. Bokeh is quite reasonable and the lens AF is quick enough. Be sure to VIEW ORIGINAL to see the better quality view.

I've been able to get tolerable results out of the Tamron

Fuzzy stuff in Yosemite

But I wouldn't characterize the bokeh as reasonable; I see it as what you get out of a typical crummy cheap zoom.

100% crop of fuzzy stuff; OOF vegetation in background

I got tired of fighting the image quality at 300 and got a 300 f/4 Nikkor. The Nikkor prime is way better.
