WOW! Those ladies are eye-stopping, eye-poppers. Especially like the second one up from this comment (gold face & beads).

Fine shots, as usual, FS. I loved the expressive look--or is a posture?--of that bird.
Thank you ! He was looking at the brand of my strap

Otis and his gang of Army squirrels appreciate your posting that one! They love doggies ....as long as they can't climb trees!

Not as sharp as I'd like but I liked the pose here.....


JVA- The look on that bird FS posted was one of horror when he saw FS coming with a frying pan.......we do know how FS is with little birdies and his gourmet cooking.

Regards!

60-sec astrotracer with 24-70
Interesting. I am still debating to go 24-70 or 15-30 for some astrophoto shots. I need a lens for hiking/landscapes/astrophoto, and it seems to me 24-70 should fit the bill a bit better than 15-30.

I used a Tamron 24-70 on a Canon (on which the DFA 24-70 is supposedly based on), and now own a DFA-15-30 (which is a much newer Tamron design), and I can say if sharpness is important to you, the 15-30 is very sharp, much so than the copy of the Tammy 24-70 I used to own.

I've got the 15-30 and 24-70. They both outresolve the k-1 sensor when applied properly, and have very accurate AF with my body. I didn't try either for Astro yet (sadly).

There's arguments in favour of each and your final choice may depend on which other lenses you have available. I think that the 15-30 launch prices are finally softening (UK has recently seen 10% codes for this lens for the first time), so I'd be tempted to go for 24-70 first, on the basis that it's more flexible, and 15-30 will hopefully soon be a little cheaper.

Big exception would be if you are doing the northern lights - in that case get the 15-30 and the Samyang 14mm as well! For hiking the combination of 24-70 and Samyang 14mm would be my choice (assuming size and weight is an issue). The weight and diameter of the 15-30 are a minus.

Just my 2p. I dithered for a while as to which one to buy first too. But they are both 'sharp' without a doubt.
