Of course, the big advantage of the Tamron comes either in low light situations (this link has an image I took in the DC Metro handheld at .8 seconds!) http://www.dustinabbott.net/2013/03/metro-arrival/ or when you want shallow depth of field. I really love the lens for that type of shot because I find the transition from focus to ooF very smooth with the Tamron. I often will pack a prime with me for this types of shots, and I didn't miss not having one with me at all on this trip.
Love the shot in the DC Metro! I took one similar to that when I was there a couple years ago but I like yours better for the way the train is almost invisible. My shot has a "standard shot" blurred fast moving train with my family in the foreground.
Great responses! Thanks! I suspect this may be my next lens - eventually.
