    You must be. A simple search on Google or live search etc. for tamron
    28-300mm results in several links. Seems to have gotten good reviews
    although it appears to be constructed of plastic so I wouldn't go knocking
    it around or depending upon it for anything approaching professional work.
    Perhaps a decent hobbyist lens.

    Ah, ok I missed a couple letters in the designator. Guess you're right then
    it doesn't appear to exist yet.

    Yeah... "Hobbyist".
    Typical opinion of someone who hasn't held or seen one, much less used one.
    You better button your lip until you come to grips with the reality of what
    this lens is and why it does what it does as well as it does.

    What exactly are you trying to demonstrate with an over-saturated, tiny
    (640px) static flower shot - *with* blown highlights?

    I think the standard practice in these arguments is to post a 100% crop,
    with alink to the original. My Mavica could equal the shot you posted.

    I raised a valid point, Doug.
    Don't you think your sample image is a bit small to make the point you're
    trying to make?
