Re: This is a bit OT but a D40 with the older Tamron 70-200 f2.8 in very bad lighting

I know a lot of things are wrong in this shot especially the lighting for the runway shoot, but we cannot deny that the Tamron even with the D40 is sharp and the AF is spot on.

At ISO 400 1/160 F2.8, the lighinting is not bad at all. and the subject is either static or moving rather slowly at a fairly far distance, it is in no way a real test of this lens's AF speed and accuracy.
