    Hey... Why reply to this idiot and stuff up the expectation your post is
    about a camera for everyone who's already killed the prick? Wake up to
    yourself will you? Ignorance is the only cure. DON'T FEED THE TROLL!

  10. Sorry, no, dear. But I'll let the record show that you propositioned me
    quite publicly.

  11. I am interested in your opinion - comparing the possession of a 5D
    instead of waiting for the APS-C sized 50D.
    I am going on an overseas trip soon and have a 400D at present. I bought
    a Tamron 28-300 with vibration control and I have a Sigma 10-20. If I
    got a 5D now I would take it with me with the Tamron. However otherwise
    if i took it with the 400D I would have no wide angle and would need to
    take 2 lenses.
    I find that most desirable for me though is to take low light
    photography often with higher ISO and no flash.
    In my position what would you do if you intended to spend and amount
    that would fetch an upgrade like the 50D which I believe uses high ISO
    shooting very well, or a 5D which is now available in Australia at a
    much lower price thus giving me the choice between the 5D and coming 50D.
    What do you think about the quality in low light of your 5D and your
    thoughts of the 50D as it would be?

    I've never used a 5D, but I believe it's larger and heavier than a 400D. Are
    you sure that the size/weight tradeoff significantly favors the 5D with the
    Tamron over the 400D with both lenses? If it doesn't, maybe it makes sense to
    use your current equipment on your trip and defer your decision until after
    the 50D comes out.

  13. Sorry I can't comment on the question you asked, I don't have Canon,
    but I do have the Tamron 28-300 lens for another brand camera. Yours
    is the first post I've seen in the year I've owned this lens, and I
    wonder what your opinion of the lens might be. Frankly, I've been
    somewhat disappointed in mine, at least anything over 150mm is not as
    sharp as it should be. Comparing it to a newly acquired Sigma 180 mm
    prime, it is a definite loser. But, of course it cost less than half
    the Sigma.

  14. Again, my apology. My statement above re "the first post I've seen in
    the year I've owned this lens" really should read "the first post
    from someone else who ALSO owns this lens".

    Another comment, I discovered this subject has been continually posted
    to more than one news group, and that displeases me. Especially since
    I can't seem to rid my replies of the unwanted address, after
    discovering this. I did not, and do not, wish to post to
    rec.photo.equipment.35mm, but seem to have no choice.
