Replacement for Tamron 70-300 LD Di lens?
I went to an airshow last week and thoroughly enjoyed it and was the first time I had used my A57 in this scenario.
I used my Tamron due to the fact that we were situated on the top of a cliff and the airshow was out over the sea (It was Bournemouth for those that know it) and so needed the length.
The LD Di is an ok lens for the price but the screw drive was a real pain; it was slow and the colours aren't as nice as the 50 f/1.8 or 18-135 I usually use and the images just look flat. So I think it is time to consider replacing it for something better.
I would really love the 18-135 as a 70-300 lens as it rocks (super quick focusing, great colours and still sharp wide open).
What would people recommend out of:
- Sony 75-300
- Sony 55-300
- Tamon SP USD 70-300
I think the 75-300 will be too close to the LD Di lens but i'm not sure if the 55-300 is going to be quick enough (focusing wise). I am also weary that the 55-300 has a rotating front element and as I would like to start using filters, this may be a pain.
Any other thoughts?
