| p.1 #1 · Canon 70-300mm IS vs Tamron 70-300mm VC |
Has anyone used both? I'm interested in image quality, most importantly at the long end. Right now I have the Canon, and have just purchased (but not yet received) the Tamron off the B&S board here. I was a little disapointed in the noise out of the Canon model...it has USM, but the old kind that spins the MF ring, and while it's not too loud, the IS makes a noise while engaging and disengaging so overall, not very quiet. I thought I might be able to jump the gun and get a comparison from someone that's used one or both. Overall, used, the Tamron is about 100 less expensive than the Canon.
I think the next step for me is going to be a 70-200mm f/4 IS with a 1.4x converter, but I'm not in a position to make that step quiet yet. I'm basically looking for the best possible image quality at the longer end for the best possible price. IS is a must for me.
I got this one last week at 300mm f/7.1, 1/100, ISO 640, cropped about 50% of the image away.
