Im a fellow nikon user as you can see in my sig, also a musician keyboards/synths mainly but have dabbled in Bass and a bit of Tennor and Alto Sax, but due to the noise equation at home and a scared dog due to the noise from them, I had to give up learning the sax - Im still using and recording with my keyboard/synth though.
With the lens situation I persoanly would stick with the nikon 70-200 as it is quite a bit sharper and focuses faster than the Tammy I understand.

Hi Pagman. Ended up selling the VR II and picked up the Tamron 70-200 f2.8 G2 some months ago. Had a lot of focusing issues early on. Bought the Tap for it,... a lot of improvements, but long and painful process. A couple updates came thru recently from Tamron, applied them via the Tap and now the G2 is tack sharp, faster and more accurate. It now outperforms the Nikon VR II,... by a good pace. Don't care much about focus breathing,... personally, I think people put too much into it.

As for music, I started on the piano, pretty much just saxophones & flute now. Pretty much only finding my way to the piano when I'm trying to write stuff out.

Am very interested in your comments re the g2 vs vr2 as I got a d500 last week. Initially I thought of getting the 70-200 f4 due to weight saving but then I thought that as I'll need some more reach, I'll need a TC so I'm back to thinking about a 2.8

Seems some reviews favour the Tamron and some the Nikon...

Do yourself a favor and go f/2.8. Depending on what you're shooting, you may not need a TC. Remember,... the D500 comes with a built-in 1.5 TC. Most of the reviews that favor the Nikon are probably referring to the newer 70-200 f/2.8E FL. I was commenting on the Tamron compared to the older 70-200 f/2.8G VR II. IMO, the Tamron is way out in front of the VR II.

When your capturing a photo, those are in-camera processed jpegs on the back lcd. Don't feel too bad. Your not the only one to be excited about what showing on the lcd, only to go home and be disappointed.

Although if your camera is capable of processing those images, your more then capable in LR.
