Not sure whether to post this here or on the 3rd party lens forums, I'll try here first!

I have seen some credible bird images of the Tamron SP AF 70-300 F/4-5.6 Di VC USD used with the Nikon V1. VC works and auto-focus. I am interested in purchasing a Nikon 70-300mm VR (for the 3rd time!), but does anyone have any experience of the Tamron with the V1 please? I normally use my 300mm F4 and Sigma 50-500mm OS for birding, but this would be a good carry around lens.

My only reasoning is that the Tamron is considerably cheaper and has had good reviews coupled with the D7000 etc. I do have the Nikon 28-300mm VR, but have found it's not quite as good as my previous 70-300mm Nikon's at 300mm for birding.

Can anyone help please.
