Im pretty sure my next purchase is going to be the DCR-250. Its a nice cheap addition that has steller reviews. I have the tamron 90mm macro and just wondering if this is a good combination. I have heard mixed things on the canon 100mm with CA issues but nothing on the tamron. Also I know it will be a little more of a learning curve but i was looking at the MSN-505. I like the mag on it and am willing to take the time learning it in a staged setting. If Overread is out there I respect your view on this topic. Thanks in advance for everyones input!
