You never know. My favorite street lens with an SLR is my Tamron 28-105, f2.8. Incredibly sharp. Yet the lens got mixed reviews. Turns out that there were many quality control problems with Tamron, and I simply lucked out, and got one on the high end of the production line.

Torgny, these are excellent bird shots - the best I have seen from you. I wouldn't fault that lens at all if you can get this quality with it - you have used it to the best advantage possible.

Dave,

Seems real quality control is since long gone. Remember the little oval sign - "Passed", that was attached to every camera and lens coming from Japan. And they made it.

Way back then [knirk knirk - that rocking chair needs some lubricant] when they had to compete with mainly European manufacturers

penolta,

Thanks for viewing and the comment. Much appreciated. There are just around 300 species breeding over here and not that variation as in the "New World"
