Re: Canon EF 70-300IS or Tamron 70-300VC help me choose

Hey I have the 60D and tried both canon and tamron in choosing between the two and testing both as well. Canons af is slightly faster but I found tamrons vc contrast and quality from 70-300 was better. As said tamron doesn't have a front rotating motor. And it's motor is better quality than the canon, hence the nonrotaring front.The tamrons vc does jump at the start to 'wake' it up but after that it's fine.

When I was deciding between the two it was about $30 more for me to chose the canon but I went tamron. I have dog show pics of the tamron in my gallery, have a look
