A very impressive photo, considering that you were zoomed out all the way. Is the slow fousing of the Tamron 18-250mm as bad as the reviewstalk about, especially at 375mm end of the lens??

It rather depends upon the amount of available light; in this shot, the camera was brought up to the eye, zoom set to maximum & focused with no noticable delay. Overall, I've found no real issues with focus apart from the occaisional one (listed in the user manual) which I guess would affect not only this lens but others as well.

However, indoors under low light it will hunt a tad & yes, it is slow.
