    so cal
    Worth the upgrade? Dont get me wrong, i really like the Tamron i own. Sharp and very crisp shots with it. But, in some light it does seem to have an odd yellowey look to some of the shots and focus seems to miss now and then. But over all i have been very happy with it. But from the beast owners, i have never heard a peep bad about it, so...... worth the upgrade? Any one every had both in thier bag?

    Real simple, the tamron is designed for the occasional shooter while the Nikon is for the daily shooter. The Nikon is clearly superior, but the Tamron has some hit or miss qualities to it. I still use it for events where I can take my time.
