Re: Tamron 31A (200-500 5.6) vs Pentax 150-450 4.5-5.6

I had one for a time. This was during the time I owned all the bigger Tamron Adaptall-2 lenses from the 180/2.5 up thru the 400/4. the 200-500/5.6 was an acceptable lens, a little better than the Tokina AT-X 150-500/5.6 SD in sharpness although the Tokina had lower distortion.

Personally I like the Pentax 150-450 better than either of those. I sold all the Tamron lenses during a short period 4 or 5  years ago.
