New to the forum and real cameras. I have the Sony a73 with a crappy kit lens. I am eyeballing the new Tamron 70-300mm as my first 2nd lens. With that price tag and versatility I assume this will be a great learning lens. I was about to buy the the Tamron 28-200mm when I saw the 700-300mm announcements.
Does anyone have experience with this lens ?
