Tamron 70-210 F4 Di VC USD - anyone bought one yet?
1

I'm a bit surprised at the lack of interest in this newly released lens. Has anyone got one yet? How does it perform?

There's an incomplete review on the Camera Labs website. Early reports suggest it "performs best around 150mm focal length" and "At 210mm the lens is clearly weaker than at other focal lengths: the center is less well defined, the APS-C/DX-corner are soft, and the FF/FX-corner outright mushy."

Doesn't sound great so far. The £450 saving over the Nikon 70-200 F4 is tempting though.
