  3. It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of a long-standing member, Just Dave.

    Dave Barker was a member of Talk Photography for nearly 10 years, and was a prominent member for most of those.
    A very warm, friendly and enthusiastic member, he spent the largest portion of his time on TP welcoming and helping others.

    I'm sure all visitors to this site will join us in thanking Dave for his unwavering support and being a large part of our community.
    Our thoughts are with his family and friends at such a difficult time.

    Actually a lot of test sites put the Nikon just a bit behind or at worst equal, so it's buy which you can get cheapest.

    I tried both and walked out the store with the tamron mate..its a cracking lens!
    The vc is amazing and its very well built.Bit larger than the nikon but I preferred its size.Image quality is very good and rivals maybe tops the nikon at certain focal lengths.Heres a link to a thread with some sample images.

    Mmmm... Same dilemma here, not really bothered about resale values because I don't plan on selling but most reviewers seem to come out on the tamron side where IQ is concerned.

    I've not used the Nikon but did own the Tamron before trading it in for a 70-200 f2.8 beasty

    The Tamron IQ is excellent and the VR locks onto it's subject like a dog with a bone. Allowing you to take photos at 300mm at some very low shutter speeds.

    You could do a lot lot worse than get that. I was actually tempted to keep it just to use as a casual holiday lens but funds didn't allow that :crying:
