Nikon 300 2.8 vs. Tamron 300 2.8

Discussion in 'Lens Lust' started by RKnecht, Apr 10, 2007.

  1. Has anyone compared these 2 lenses? Even though I like my 300/4, would like faster glass in the 300mm range. I know the nikon 300 2.8 does well with a TC, what about the Tamron? I think my Kenko TC will also woek on the Tamron. I know there is a huge price difference, and I am curious of how "bad" the Tamron really is for the money. Any input?

    Rich, I don't have experience with the Tamron, but the Sigma version is very nice costing around $2,600.
  3. I have the Tamron and the Tamron pro TC's to go with and get wonderful results!!

    this one with the 2.0 TC

    this with the 1.4TC

    All the best
