Re: New Tamron SP 70-300mm Sony Mount

I made a tentative purchase through Amazon the week this lens was announced. I signed up for the monthly newsletters and the monthly drawing for a free 70-300 but after 2 months Amjazon canceled my order because they could not tell me when it would arrive. I wanted the lens to shoot my sons middle school football games. I picked up a used 70-300G and have not looked back.

Since then I sold some of my lens and picked up some others. One that was sold was the Tamron 17-50 f2.8. It was a nice lens but the range is on the short side. I replaced it with the Sony 16-105 (Color and Range) and the Sigma 30 f1.4 for portrait/lowlight.

At present I do not have a Tamron lense and may not for some time.
