Re: Sony SAL 55-300 or Tamron SP 70-300 Di USD?

Well I'm going to play devil's advocate here a bit.

Going with the 70-300 means there will be a 20mm (30mm ff equivalent) hole in your range, vs 5mm (8mm ff equivalent) on the 55-300.  Even if the Tamron is a better lens (I'm not saying it is or isn't), you might miss that range sometime.
