Just wondered if anyone is using the Tamron 70 - 180 f2.8 lens on a Sony body?
Iíve recently bought one and in AF-C mode the lens focuses quick and is responsive.

However in AF-S the motors are far noiser and itís far slower to focus at apertures greater than F4.
When i pre focus in this mode the image slowly starts to come into focus and then snaps in - Iím surprised how much longer it takes.
However all the reviews say itís an excellent lens with great focus speed

I'd send this back to the manufacturer to check it, if it is under guarantee.
