I'm looking at the Tamron 28-300 f/3.5-6.3 XR Di LD Aspherical Lens. I'd like to hear from anyone who has used one.
What I like about it is that it is very compact and light, only 3 inches long for a 300 mm zoom lens.
I'd like to know if there is a huge sacrifice in image quality for that range and that size lens.
The description of the lens on B&H's site is here:
B&H's description says it is small and light because of use of exra refractive glass and aspherical lenses. Any insight on what the heck that means would also be helpful.
