Re: BIF images

Also "you get what you pay for" has some qualifications.  It doesn't necessarily hold true when you are comparing products manufactured years apart.  Even though they are in the same price range, I believe the Tamron will be better than the Sigma 150-500 I own, just because coatings and other technologies have improved.  Have they improved enough to make the lens better than a $10,000, lens manufactured five years ago, almost definitely not, but it may not be as far off as the price would indicate if you were talking about two products being introduced at the same time.
