I have the tamron one.yanagi said:So far looking on Sigma APO 70-300 F4-5.6 Super II and Tamron 70-300 LD F4-5.6.
Which one is better in pic quality?
I heard that Sigma one is bad in mechanical thing. very easy to be broken. is that true?
u can do a quick search as u r not the 1st person to ask this question.yanagi said:nice shoot. I like the first one pic.
But seems getting softer after 200mm. Anyone made a comparison between sigma and tamron? I saw some sigma pic before, like its color.
Huh? care to share where you heard that from?yanagi said:Thanks u all for the suggestions....
But I heard that Nikkor 70-300 ED one actually is made by Tamron and seems have the same quality with Tamron one.
I am a little shy in pocket, so price may not beyond $500. In this case, seems Sigma one is the best choice so far. right???
I read it somewhere too... when i was using a nikon system - just starting out, i was looking for a 70-300 zoom. everyone recommended the ED which was about 600 bucks and i did some research. The mechanisms and build of the Tamron, not to mention, design is almost reminiscent to that of the Nikon 70-300 ED and if im not wrong... one of the review sites (a popular one online) did some article about it and established and even (iirc) said that the Nikon version was OEM'd by Tamron, but with a different lens coating. Something like that... dont take my word for it if you dont like what you read, but i'm being dead honest.TMC said:Huh? care to share where you heard that from?
you are right -- if the stage is indoors and the lighting is very dim, but outdoors, this lens kicks ass -- bang for the buck, to put it crudely~ I can't recommend this lens for stage shooting as well, unless it's a really bright stage you're shooting.eight said:base on my experience Sigma 70-300mm cant without tripod especially for the stage shooting...
i think the thread starter may want to consider if u r the one selling this lens at the price of a sigma 70-300 apo. if that is the case, pls count me in too.espn said:AF-S 70-200VR f2.8G.

If you can get the 70-200VR at the price of the Sigma 70-300, I buy from you lor.vbs1979 said:i think the thread starter may want to consider if u r the one selling this lens at the price of a sigma 70-300 apo. if that is the case, pls count me in too.
