Re: Tamron 70-200 2.8 G2 vs Nikon 70-200 F4

I woud start by making sure that the camera and lens are perfectly level. There may also be diffraction evident with too small an aperture for the focal length. I was photographing a very distant subject with a 500mm f/4 lens and when I added a TC-20 teleconverter the diffraction became very evident with what was now a 1000mm f/8 lens.

One reason why I stick with Nikon for my telephoto lenses is that they are all compatible with my two Nikon teleconverters. This would not be the case with Sigma lenses and may not be with the Tamron.

I would also look on fredmirand.com Buy-Sell to see what used 70-200mm FL lenses are selling for at this time. I bought one that was in pristine condition in February for $1750 which included shipping and there was no sales tax involved, only the Paypal fee.
