First shots with new Tamron Lens.
Posted By: dws1117, 01-05-2008, 04:50 PM

I've had the camera for a little over a year and I've finally been able to add a new lens. Picked up a Tamron 70-300mm 1:2 F/4-5.6 DI LD Macro. One day when funds are more plentiful and I've learned a lot more I'll upfrade to fancier lenses. For now this will be just fine for my needs.

These are some of the first shots with the new lens.

You know, sometimes the cheap lenses do just fine, These shots are great, and I've had similar luck with my DA55-200, even with the kit lens... now that i've got the 50mm f/1.4 it hasn't left my camera. that said, that lens isn't expensive either... and i couldn't be happier with any of them! great shots, particularly the contrast of #2.

They look pretty darn good to me. I've been shooting with a Sigma 70-300 APO DG macro for about a year now with good results. I just picked up a Bigma for a little more reach.

I have this lens and even if I got nicer lenses I'm sure this one would still stay in my bag.

Great shots, I especially like the leaf!

gotta be happy with the results from this lens.
I have the Pentac 75-300 ... albeit a cheap lens ... and not meant to be the best lens around ... it produces images that I am happy with.

Also makes it more challenging to try and produce good images with such an inferior product.
It's half the fun
