You are so right. This stuff is supposed to help you, not make your life harder. I understand VC is not going to be helpful above a certain shutter speed but it shouldn't introduce more blur than if you had it off.

Yes - this is a failure. What I don't understand is that it functions incredibly well below that. At some point it should disable itself (above certain certain shutter speeds etc.). Most VR/IS systems do this (on tripods etc.) and Tamron have been making VC lenses for a while so this shouldn't be a new problem.

You can get pixel sharp images of really distant subjects handheld at 1/20s at 70mm, and it can't handle this. Optically, I like it. And when the VC works it is really really good.

Anyway, I have emailed Tamron seeking to contact their technical side as it is obviously a design aspect, hopefully firmware fix will be available.

Hopefully a fix will be out soon.
