Yes, the Macro works well at f8 or higher, so limited to outdoor still shooting. AF is too slow with moving object. For telephoto macro, you might want to use with a tripod. You can search around here,there was older topic discussed about this lens under Tamron 70-300. I think most of these telephoto zoom lenses are slow in AF. Maybe a prime telephoto lens will have faster AF.
Yes.I would say you are correct.

Could this quantaray be a rebadged Tamron Di lens? It looks just like the Di version.
I bought this new too. The box says "compatible with digital and film". There's a peice of paper with model number "A17PR" printed. "A17" is Tamron Di's model number.
I wonder if there is a non Di version look like that?
