Tamron AF 28-300 Ultra Zoom XR f3.5-6.3 LD Aspherical (IF) Macro

Can anyone give me the low down on this lens? Any reason to own it over the Tamron 70-300mm DI LD macro? Pros and cons of the lens? There is no review in the lens database.

Thank you very much. I have seen that review and it gave me some pause. It would appear that in at least that one exapmle that it wasn't a 300mm. I was hopeing someone had some personal experience with both lenses that I've mentioned.

that is common for most superzooms. they don't have the full focal length unless at infinity focus. i'm not sure about the physical explanation however...

My son Daniel has it on his K100D super. It is as good as it gets in that range. It is soft at 300mm
