I would be very interested in the comparison between this Tamron 20-200mm f/2.8 VC lens compared to the Nikon 20-700mm f/4 lens.
Both are in the same price range; one is very light f/4 and the other one is heavier f/2.8. For professional journalists I would imagine f/2.8 has advantages… but for a non-pro who likes nature, wildlife photography (many times dusk/dawn situations), I wonder how these two would compare?
Tamron 20-200 is a super-zoom; Nikon 20-700 even more so :-)
I suspect that 20-700 in the above post is typo. Should read 70-200
I know it’s not recently released lens, but any plan to compare this one with Nikon 70-200 VRI, VRII, and F4 VRIII? In need of your review and comparisons.
