Lonely Toads- Tamron Adaptall Lens 60-300mm 3.8-5.4(23A) on Sony A6000 video

Was in the park today and thought I might record some video which I almost never do. All shot at 300mm except for 1 shot of the dead tree at 60mm on Sony A6000

They are American Toads about 2" or 5cm long. The lens is one of my favorite Zooms.

Your shots convinced me to buy this lens. I usually dismiss superzooms as cheap kit but there are some great adaptalls
edit: I usually dismiss legacy superzooms as cheap kit.

This is one of the classics from the film era; I bought one because of the good things I'd heard about it. I'm not sure why you would call this a "super zoom". One of the Pentax standards these days is the DA 55-300 f/4-5.8 ED WR, which is a little more zoomy, of course. I have both lenses, and if I were to prefer the DA, the preference would be primarily because the DA is WR and AF. A true "super zoom" typically goes 18-300mm or so.

A super zoom is 5x or greater

I haven't seen that definition, but I'm not going to argue definitions with you. What I can tell you is that lenses like the Tamron 18-270mm and the Sigma 18-300mm are neither kit lenses nor cheap {and certainly not inexpensive}

FF superzooms can't be defined the same way as aps-c superzooms. I did not mean to imply all superzooms are cheap kit. Im generally a legacy glass guy. I'll edit my statement.

That's OK. I asked because I didn't understand what you were getting at, essentially.
I now have several AdaptAll lenses, and I've found all of them to be reasonably OK {each depending on its history, that is}
Certainly, each one had been worth more than what I paid for it.
