Starting to like my new lens now,works great on my old 1D classic and get plenty of keepers , previous lens for motorsport was the old 70-200 3.5 usm which I still love but the extra reach of the Tamron makes all the difference at the track .

Very nice shots, however I think you may have accidentally posted in the wrong thread?

No, but the price difference between the two lens doesn't match up with the improved sharpness and image quality, in my opinion. And again, In my opinion, if I already owned the 55-250, I wouldn't consider spending more money to move up to the 55-250. That money would be better spent/saved towards one of the Canon 70-200's or a 100-400. If I didn't already own a tele-zoom, and wanted to keep a tight budget, only then would I consider the Tamron 70-300.

On the tests I've seen on the Digital photo, the difference in sharpness between these two lenses is wide. The tamron is practically L lens quality, while the 55-250 is just your average telephoto zoom. The tamron is very comparable to the canon 70-300 L until you hit 300mm or close to it, then the difference in very noticeable. Until then they are practically identical. If you have an extra $250 to spend then the Tamron appears to be the way to go.

Btw, I've read from one reviewer that the Tamron doesn't do well on full frame cameras and that there was a lot of front and back focusing issues. Anyone have this problem?

I dont have issues with focusing other than being slow and problems locking under lowish light/backlit/non contrast subject.

The tamron is NOT L quality IMO, only if you stop it down. I feel like I have to shoot F8 all the time to get acceptable sharpness, so this is essentially a 70-300 F8 to me :lol:

I may upgrade to the L or some other long range lens in the future. IQ is not the only reason, lack of tripod mount makes this lens very unsteady on a tripod.
