Finally got a chance to get out and test the Tamron 70-180mm lens at my son's game (he's not pictured here). I started out with the 200-600 but given the field setup I was simply TOO close for the lens to be effective. I also had to shoot through a fence which was a pain...

Switched to the Tamron and I was pretty happy. Wish I had more pixels to play with but the A73 does what it does. :)

Didn't do much to alter the photos other than crop and some basic corrections.
