Which begs the question: is the Tamron VC (Vibration Compensation) compatible with the F6? And if it's not, should I get the Tamron or the Nikkor 50/1.8G?
I have the F6 and the Tamron 45 f1.8, and also had the Nikon 50f1.8. The Tamron's VC works well on the F6. I found the Tamron to be sharper and better built and I prefer the 45mm focal length. The Nikon focuses just a little faster though.
