Hi, Terry...

Which photos? (Be sure to view the original file links)

The 1st set shows very good sharpness wide open. The latter pics show a sharpness and bokeh comparison with the superior 70-200 VRII. The last set shows that DXO Labs resolution testing is either wrong or does not translate into real world shooting.

Of course I could have just come out and SAID so, but I do think a sample is best. If you'd like more you can google up a real-world comparison from a few folks who had the Tammy up against the 70-300vr head-to-head. At 300mm the Tamron won. On the other hand you can find people/tests showing the opposite.

I've already put the Tamron up against the 300mm F4, but I want to do a better set of tests with nicer subjects. The results are surprisingly close so far (though the F4 IS superior).
