Sell me on the newest Tamron 70-300 VC lens.
Jan 26, 2014

I really like the versatility of this zoom range.  Being a Canon shooter, I have had experience with the super-duper Canon 70-200 f4 IS USM "L" lens.  Yet I have had many, many occasions when that extra 100mm would have been very helpful.  I understand I could use a quality 1.4X TC on the Canon lens, but frankly, I don't like fiddling with lens changing when out and about and in the field.  I can afford either of these 70-300s, but NOT Canons' 70-300 "L" lens.

So....am I nuts to be considering this lens?
