My majestic horse: D500 + the new Tamron 70-200 f2.8 G2 wide open

yeah, it's not insanely sharp wide open.  I suspect that if I dropped $2,800 on the new Nikon 70-200 f2.8 VRIII instead of $1,375 on the Tamron, I'd get sharper images wide open.  But honestly, I don't get paid for this, it's just a hobby, and I wanted f2.8 because of reasons.  I think it's a great f2.8 telephoto lens, personally.  I also have the Nikon 70-200 f4.  that's a good lens too, but on a crop sensor, I feel like I need all the light I can muster.  I feel like the Nikon f4 is better suited for FX sensors.
