Re: which is the best 70-300mm for A57

My wife picked me up the Tamron 75-300 Macro for Xmas last year. I needed the distance but had a very limited budget. I am surprised how well this lens has worked for me. it is not very quick on the focusing but if you have time to compose it should be plenty of time to focus. I do shoot in manual focus with peaking turn on in a pinch. It works very well in the sun and cloudy days with non action photos. Low light it sometimes searches and that's when manual comes in handy.
