Guys, i need opinions on this: Tamron 70-300 VC USD f/4-5.6 (Nikon Mount) or Nikkor 70-200 f/4? Wanna hook it up to my new D600, considered an 'upgrade' from my 70-300mm f4/5.6 non VR Nikkor lens that is soft and slow AF hunting in less-than-bright lighting conditions.

Things to consider (by order of priority):
1) Budget. Less than $2k. Nikkor 70-200 f/2.8 VRII is out.
2) Lightweight. If Sigma 70-200 f2.8 DG OS can be hand-carried (i.e. no need tripod collar for safe carrying), i would consider it against the Nikkor 70-200 f/4.
3) Image Quality.
4) Sharpness.

If u guys got any recommendations other than the stated 2 lenses for Nikon (e.g. Nikkor 80-200 f2.8 AFS etc), do include also. Thanks.
Get the 70-200 f4.

The tamron 70-300 usd is good but the nikon 70-200 should be better.

I used the tamron before, not particularly sharp and focusing is slower despite having usd.

Take ex-banker's advice into account, do take a look at CS BnS, you may get it cheaper over there.

Portability to me is a big thing. If you dun wan to carry it out, having the best lens will also mean nothing.

Age is catching on...

At times my 650d feels like a brick, especially after shooting...

Ok. But image quality wise leh...is the Tamron on par with the Nikkor f/4 lens from 70-200mm focal length? Coz if on par, i rather get the lower priced Tamron to zoom to 300mm for longer event shots rather than shoot 70-200 @300mm DX mode.

By the way, how to use ND variable filter properly ah? I got a Chromage ND Variable filter (ND2-ND400), but only usable from 2 stops to 4 stops. I try go beyond that, an "X" figure would appear in the photo. Any ways to deploy the filter properly so that I can also use the ND400 range?
