I had a very hard time picking this lens vs the Nikon 70-300mm VR . I was researching the web reviews for weeks to see what lens was a better bang for my buck. I also went down to my local camera shop to compare the both in person. I really wasn't to impressed with the Nikon VR system compared to the Tamron VC. The VC locks on like a guided missle! The performance of the Tamrom wide open was just great. I ended up picking up a new Tamron 70-300mm VC USD via eBay for a smoking great price $370 with a $50 rebate and 6yr warranty! I paired it with my Nikon D7000 and it's a marriage made in heaven! I have no remorse at all buying this great lens. It's the best bang and quality for the money hands down!reviewed September 11th, 2011 (purchased for $320)
