    I have shot thousands of pictures with one. For the money, it is a good lens... but obviously you get what you pay for. It is every bit as good, image wise, as a Nikon 70-300 AF D.

    Here's an example of what one can do: 2007 Tour De France winner Alberto Contador (right) leads teammate (and TDF top 10 finisher) Yaroslav Popovich around a corner in the 2007 Tour Of Missouri.

    I have a Promaster (which is made by Tamron) 28-300mm AF lens for Pentax. I would say it performs reasonably well for the price. My friend (a Canon user) swears by her Tokina, but I have been very happy with my Tamron-made lens. The last lens I had was a Takumar 70-200 AF and it was horrible - it refused to take low-light or actions shots at all. In comparison, the Tamron is extremely versatile and the clearest pictures of all the lenses I have used. :)

    i used to shoot with that lens and i was happy with it, keeping the price in mind. But i kinda destroyed it on my trip to New Zealand, probably some sand in it. So the focus didnt work to well anymore. But i made some good pics with the lens.
    I used it on a Canon 350D btw.

    I have the Pentax mount version of this lens, and for the price, I don't think you can do better. Here are a few shots with it.

    Hey Stratman, I'm from STL also, What section were yo sitting in, Old or New stadium? Not trying to hijack the thread here, but that would give a good idea of distance.
