Just Amazing!!! The Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6 VC

Took a trip to the Cincinnati Zoo and decided to really stress out the VC on the new Tamron lens.  All I can say is that the VC not only works, but really surprised me in just how well it worked!!

I've had other VR lenses in the past and they have all worked well.

Look under the sample images below and check out the EXIF data.  Yes, these are not "fast" aperture lenses, but my goodness the VC on this thing is miraculous!!

Gear loadout was the Nikon D700 and the Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6 VC, attached to a BlackRapid sling strap.  No tripod, no leaning on a wall or pole for support.  Straight hand held.

1/60f/5.6 ISO 640 300mm

1/20 f/4.5 ISO 1250 125mm
The ones above, numbers wise are good, but check these next few out.  CRAZY!!

1/8 f/4.8 ISO 1250 160mm
1/4 f/4.0 ISO 1600 80mm
Yeah, 1/4th and 1/8th of a second.  Those are not typos and I'm not pulling your leg.  I did not doctor the EXIF info in any way.  I'm still a little shocked looking at the last 2 images and seeing the EXIF data numbers.
