Do you mean, perhaps, how do the Tamron 70-200 f2.8 & Sigma 70-200 f 2.8 compare?

If you do mean to compare the 70-300 lenses, the short answer is the Tamron is sharper, but the Sigma is much better with Ca/Pf control.

looking for a cheap deal on the tammy 70-200 2.8, prices seems to have dropped with the new sigma model being released or its just my imagination.

These buggers are absolutely swarming the lilacs this year for some reason. They be small. They be fast. They be very hard to shoot hand held.

17-50@50mm f/3.5, 1/750, ISO 100

You make it look easy, with focus nailed on the bee. The aroma of lilacs in Spring, IMO, defines Spring.

Ok cast #2

This cast completely restricts my elbow, so composing by eye with my right hand is absolutely impossible. I had to get a new, (full), cast put on today.

I told the nurse I had just got a new lens in the mail from HK and wanted to test it out, but she was adamant my elbow had to be restricted

Beautiful!

Jarvier, those are marvelous B & Ws, but the first one is fantastic, containing the meaning of life, though in code--of course. Thank You!

In your case, the LBA is looking terminal--LOL What did the nurse say, when you argued for putting your shooting above your physical well being??
