    Yes...it's a very nice lens. But this and a 1.4X TC or the 100-400mm really bugs the hell out of me. Can't make up my mind.

    Just out of interest, what would you use it for if you bought one?

    Well, it's possibly two lenses in one. But the Tamron looks like a fine piece of kit...no point for you to give it up if you're into macro shots.

    Tamron absolute fine and it gave me great pictures! Just that, my small i-Case can not hold too many things.

    Indeed...I agree with JediForce. In the past I used to have two slingbags and eventually decided to get a backpack. The MicroTrekker looked really cute, and it was adequate at that time, but I am thankful that the final decision went to the MiniTrekker. It's not an overly huge bag, but it has a surprising amount of space inside. That can be used for snacks, a spare T-shirt, plastic bags...and the rear pocket can be used to house a water pack as well if you really want to go 'trekking'.

    i will prefer 70-200 f2.8 + 1.4x TC

    more flexible and the quality wont degrade much (with the 1.4x) even at wide open

    certainly, AF and sharpness wise, the 300mm prime will wins hand down
    We are HDD of PC & FT are MB add to storage;
    so PC never hangs with enormous storage capacity - LKY
