I'm in the latest Tamron newletter

The current issue of the Tamron newsletter has an article about me using their 18-250 lens on family vacations. Okay, so it's not exactly National Geographic, but it's still nice. I guess all my ravings about this lens paid off.

Thanks gang! It was a pleasant surprise when they asked if they could do the article. I'm also glad they printed "Pentax" in there as well. Gotta get that plug in there.

Thanks! I don't think the NatGeo people need to worry just yet.

Thanks Gary. I can only take credit for the pictures, but I did make sure to get the Pentax mention in there.

Thanks, I was pleased and very surprised when they asked to do a story on me.

I tried it, but the ink messed up my monitor. I don't think they even offer a print version of this anymore, which is just as well. I could rarely find a copy. Of course, the electronic version is a little harder to read in my usual "library".

Nothing but the glory, Buddha! Well, I did get a free Tamron hat and t-shirt from the $119 photo class I attended.
