Sharpness comparision of Tamron 70-300 VC USD with Nikon 70-300 VR
[quote name='anyscreenamewilldo' timestamp='1288467419' post='3845']

. . . yes please, new pictures from unusual unposters for a different point of view . . .

. . . and on a totally separate matter i'm hoping for a few of klaus's holiday happy snaps - always worth a look - please [Image: rolleyes.gif]


Now there is a grand idea/suggestion <img src='<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Big Grin' />
I had read a few reviews about Canon 70-300mm IS before I bought it. The views stated that Canon is very good lens to beat Nikon 70-300mm VR at 300mm F8, but besides it lags behind the Nikon. I also have experience using Nikon before, and as my feeling, Nikon is slightly better from 70-200mm and at 300mm Nikon performs similar to my Canon at every aperture. In the views, Canon is better at 300mm F8, but my lens does not perform so even stopping down to F8 image quality is still the same as Nikon's. I believe my lens is bad copy.

I found a lot of Tamron owners in Nikon mount finding out that it is very good lens to perform far better than Nikon's at 300mm wide open, so I think this lens is better than Canon at every focal lens length and aperture. From what I read from reviews and my own experience, Canon 70-300mm IS lags behind Nikon 70-300mm VR both image and built quality (not at 300mm F8) and Tamron is the best among them. However the new 70-300mm L IS will reverse it.

True, bad language on sammys part. But I it would also help the peace on this forum a lot if people (e.g. brightcolors) would abstain from stating general beliefs which throw a bad light on a whole group of people (e.g Nikon users) and can easily be taken as an insult.


Agree <img src='<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Sad' /> but it is easier to accept personal opinions being stated as general facts than insulting language. Both serve to diminish the quality of the forum. Kindly Vieux Loup
Now everything is clearer. It is reviewed on

From what I learned from the review is Tamron 70-300mm VC has poorer IQ from 200-300mm. So if this lens is not a bad copy, I will never buy Tamron because I have already been disappointed with Nikon 70-300mm VR at 300mm.
