Bump to see if anyone has bought this lens for FX camera. There are no used ones out there. So I don't know if that means it's good enough for people to hold on to it or just not many people are buying it.

I saw a hobbyist shooting one on a D600 at a cycling event last weekend. First time I've seen one out and about. Didn't get a chance to ask him about it.

Based on my experience with the last Tamron 70-200 I'd rather pay a little extra for the Nikon version, simply because the resale on Nikon lenses is much better. Sure - it may cost $500 more up-front, but you'll come out ahead down the road. So if the Nikon represents a lower true cost of ownership it's a no brainer, assuming you can afford the initial purchase price.

It's a $1000 difference. That's a lot of money
