|comment:||This Tamron lens really is as good as the reviews say.|
It is quick, sharp, lacking in aberrations and has full time manual override.
I'm very impressed. I have just tried it out at the Yeovilton Navy Air Day and had lots more keepers than I would have had with my old Tokina 80-400. I also used it at the Silverstone race circuit practising my panning skills and the quick focus made for great results.
It is a good wildlife lens too and is even sharp enough for decent dragonfly and butterfly photographs. Rapidly becoming a favourite lens of mine.
Unless you need more reach this lens is a no-brainer and a must have lens for Sony users.
Excellent value too.
