Re: Tamron 28-300mm VC - I love it!

It's a great lens, and taken to new levels with the FX format. At the moment, with the D300 I find it soft between 250mm and 300mm, but otherwise more than adequately sharp at other focal lengths. Some owners have reported good sharpness at 300mm with the D3/D700, so here's hoping for the best... I'll be able to confirm when I get my D700 in a few days time.

With flash any time or non-flash under normal lighting conditions, this lens is fantastic, with excellent sharpness, colors and contrast. AF speed is okay, and locks focus confidently.

Lens creep is starting to set in on my half year old Tamron, but I just love using it and thank goodness for the zoom lock.
