Remember, it's not the CPU that's in your camera that makes great images, it's the one located about 4" behind the viewfinder that does.

Yep...showing relative sharpness, and bokeh. Beyond field flattening at 300mm the Tamron's bokeh is pretty good wide open. Of course the 70-200 VRII can hold remarkable sharpness at 2.8, which is what I signed on for (among other things.

My Nikon 70-300vr had bokeh that was in the same ballpark, but sharpness was not quite as good at the long end.

Some have said the Tamron 70-300 VC only exhibits the high degree of sharpness at closer range, but if you look at my sailboat shots and heavy crops, there's plenty of detail there. My 300mm F4 will only best it when you pixel peep and the corners will be better (of course).

Cheers,

Robert
