Re: The Tamron is here... How they stack up.

Thanks to Jeff and others for their comments. I have the Minolta 100-300mm APO and use it on my NEX6 and NEX7 bodies via the LA-EA2 adapter. Presumably the focussing and sharpness should be better with this combo than on most SLTs. What do there think? John

The NEX 6 and 7 have strong AA filters as do the A6000 and A77.

Cameras with weaker AA filters like the A3000, A5000, A58, and A77II get sharper results.

The 100-300 APO lenses I've tried have been some of the least sharp lenses.
