i've been hearing a lot about the tam being slow for following fast subjects, but now i see that's it's a big step up actually from the pentax da 50-200 WR, so to me, it performs o.k. in this area. besides, the person behind the lens must use his intuition every time and use the lens and techniques to maximize the lens's performance. Sometimes it's a matter of figuring out what you're not not doing enough of, could do different, etc. i must say that the pictures the tam produces are so good, in terms of sharpness wide open, ca, fringing control, and fabulous bokeh, that I can quite easily put up with the focus "issues". Every purchase is some trade off for something else you could have more or less of.
