Awesome. Looks like that new lens is working out just fine. IQ seems at least as good as the Tamron if not a touch better and without the purple fringing.

Thanks! Yes, I have to admit it's a great new lens. I am having to relearn to stabilize myself for pics though cause at 300mm almost any camera shake ruins the pic.
