Thanks DPR
I am really liking the lens - vey little to complain about at all.
I tend to use it more as I find myslelf needing the wider angle a lot
of the time... so just on that alone I guess it was the right buy for me.
I have 2 lenses, in particular, that overlap in use - the Nikon 16 - 85 and
The Tamron 28 - 200 - they are both very good and nice and sharp.
The Tamron hasn't got VR - but is nice and light in use, also it does a halfway
decent close up job. The Nikon is wider and has VR which really seems to work well in lower light etc
So as you can see - it's swings and roundabouts.
The Nikon was perfect for the day - got pictures on the hotplate of the
train - where the wide angle was really useful.
