I hope this question fits in the thread.
Would you recommend this lens over Canon 70-200 f4 NON IS ?
I sold my 55-250IS because i wanted something sharper and faster but after that I got canon's 28 1.8 and 85 1.8 primes (i love them) and now I can't really afford 70-200 f2.8 lenses and not sure if I can justify spending that money on a hobby. I also don't think going back to 55-250 would be an option.
I'm looking for a longer lens to use for motorsports and sometimes portrait photography. Here where I live a used 70-200 f4 non IS costs around the same as new Tamron 70-300VC.
Which one would you get?
I don't know where you live but in the US the Canon cost $630 and the Tamron $350 so to me it's an easy decision. The Tamron is a hell of a deal at that price. I think it's a real gem for what it costs.
