tamron 200-400 5.6 it start off nicely where my 70-210 ends and with 1.4 teleconverter gives me a 280-560 F8 lens and only 1 stop light loss

useing my 70-210 with both a 2x and 1.4x would give me 196-588 F8 more range..but more glass as well..and three stops as opposed to one stop light loss .. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

I am looking at this as i said because there are some subject matter ( redwing black birds ect ) that are to far out in a marsh for the 70-210 w 2x to handel...with out the 1.4...

I am looking at the SIGMA EX APO D teleconverters...as I can not afford nikons even with help $$ wise

I had the Tamron 200-400 a number of years back and was not impressed with it. Ended up returning it and going for a Minolta (system I had at the time) 100-400, which was much better.

I don't know if Tamron has upgraded this lens since then, but I don't think so.

200-400 I know a guy who shot CART with one...... he ended up upgrading to a 400mm f5.6 L lens because he "hated" it..

As for the others, ...just buy the brand lenses.... My friend Dan sent his 70-200 HS APO Sigma lens to get rechipped because of incompatability issues.....well, the repair time has been so long that ended up buying a Canon 70-200 f2.8 L.. It has been 4 months ago and he calls them all the time asking when it will be ready....

The thing is....is that those lenses cost less...but you suffer in some way because of it.. I just have Canon lenses... I learned my lesson before I switched from Minolta to Canon back in 96.. I had Sigma, and Tamron lenses... I even owned the Tamron 300mm f2.8...I still have a picture on my wall that a friend took with me holding it in my army jacket.. I later bought a 300mm f4 IS lens and that was faster and more accurate with the AF than my Minolta Maxxum 9xi and the 300mm f2.8 lens... It didn't have full time manual focus over ride but it was white....so at least I looked cool from a distance [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] Oh, and as for sharpness...... it was nothing great... I love my 300mm f2.8 L lens so much more... I am glad to have bought the better lens.....

Seriously, you really do get what you pay for..

shot w/ older sigma 70-210 2.8 and a 2x ( quantaray ) converter on the d100... my parents got me...cause of a job op that did not happen...
