Re: Tamron 28-200 vs. Sony 70-200

I am happy to stand corrected on the original photos. In any case if I put both of them through Topaz Sharpen AI (my usual sharpening software) I suspect they would be completely indistinguishable.

Another reason for considering the Tamron is that I also have a camera converted for infrared, and I am optimistic that the 28-200 will work well with infrared (see the section on Tamron lenses at infraredcameraconversions.co.uk; though the testing of the 28-200 is not yet complete, the other Tamrons tested are reported to be excellent with IR). I agree with you on the wide end, but the 24-105 is not so good with infrared: it can generate hotspots that spoil images and are hard to get rid of. For visible light, it is of course excellent.

Sony had the right idea with the 24-240, but it is just not good enough
