Re: Which of these looks sharper/better to you?

I find it amusing that after I posted info that revealed which was the Sony and also mentioned this thread in the Sony SLT forum the 70-400 got a bunch of votes. It's why in polls like this what gear is represented must be kept secrete. Now I do not claim the Tamron is as good as the Sony because the 70-400 G2 is supposed to be the best of it's type but but for sharpness they are darn close. Here's a sharpness comparison between The Tamron mounted on a Canon 5D MK III and a Sony A900, cameras that are pretty comparable relative to resolution. In fact the Sony's slightly higher resolution sensor might give the 70-400 a slight advantage yet the two are very close.
