But, in case you do mind FF ...


I have a Tamron 70-300 as a light-to-travel tele-zoom. Used it on a 7D, and now also a 6D and I assure you even on FF is it very usefull and very well capable of competing against lenses like the 100-400 L (which I also have).

I've added a picture to my gallery, taken with the Tamron 70-300 @ a bit beyond 250mm : http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/1558624433/photos/2406253/d-aebn_0615

I know exposure and white balance can be better, but just look at the top of the tail.

The discussion 55-250 or 70-300 has been here on the forum several times. This is a reply I gave in 2011 in one of those discussions, based on own experiences : http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/post/39466153

My opinion has not been changed since.

Regards, Sandor.
