Yes, I saw them. Perfect shots.

Yeah, I'm looking for a more versital lens. My 18-55 3-5.6 lens is great for indoor shots, but the with the range of f/stop it's hard to get a good indoor shot without using flash.

The Tamron looks better and better, and you can't beat that price.

What's your opinion on this one?? Think it would be good for Taking Picture's of the dog's?? I have a big lens but it's not auto focus Would this one be better?

Anyway, I've got a Nikon D40X and it's perfect. I shoot Softball, Baseball, Children, Portriats, Playing/Pets, etc and have had no problems that couldn't be fixed with a different lens.
Sorry, I missed this reply.

When I push the shutter button with the D40 it doesnt snap the shot right away. It takes a long time to focus is the problem.

I dont have any lenses other than the one that it came with and compared to the canon I have, the D40 is slow.

I think part of my problem is my house was so dark. At my apartment the lighting is better so my Nikkor does decently. I probably use my 200 mm Nikkor the most though. It's very good for outside pics.

Tamron is my favorite though. The pics also look a lot softer with it.

That'd probably be the lens. My kit lens can be very slow at times.

Hmmm, I didnt know that. I guess the lens on my canon is just faster then. I need a different lens. I am bored with the one I have.

I shoot with a Nikon D80... I started with a D40 but quickly upgraded from that.

How's the difference in those two? My aunt has a D80 (or 90?) and we compare pics sometimes. I can't see much difference between my D60 and the D90 but it could have to do with so many things. My entire family and extended family has Nikons.

Now dad's D300 is a totally different story. I want that camera, lol.

I have the 70-300 Tamron. The only thing I don't like is it's slower. I can still get the picture, but you just have to be ready ahead of time. Which it works for me because I don't have $1,000 to spend on a decent lens, so spending less but being ready for the shot ahead of time is no biggie.

Overall, it's a very very nice lens.

Haha, I want a D300 too :P

I like how I have better options for lenses now without worry about manually focusing them... having more autofocus points is nice as well.

I truly covet the D300. *drools* At first it seemed like way too much camera for me but once I got to fiddling with it, I can see how much more awesome it is than the D60s.

I can totally see how having a larger selection of AF lenses would be helpful. Our largest zoom lens won't autofocus on my camera at all so we just use it on the D300.
