I've got one of these (model 104A) and I think it's indeed a *very sharp*
lens -- as good as the SP 70-210/3.5 I also had, if not better!

According to my experience, there are some 'not-so-good' Tamron SP lenses
(eg. 28-80/3.5-4.2), and some *excellent*  Tamrons from the 'regular'
(non-SP) line (eg. 135/2.5, or the above 75-250).
