This past weekend I received an unexpected and awesome gift.
The Tamron 70-200 f2.8 Di
This is the lens I have been lusting after for a few years now, and it was completely unexpected for one to suddenly land on my table. So, of course it is time to take some more pictures!
Sadly, my first few attempts to use the new lens were less than spectacular. Birds are hard to keep up with, and I have not had time to visit any interesting places for photography. But tonight the moon is full, and the clouds are interesting. This moon picture is un-edited, taken from RAW into Lightroom, and right back out as a JPG for the blog. With the exception of the green lens flare (which might be the UV filter), this is really awesome!
I will not be writing a long drawn-out review of this lens, there are plenty of them online already. Suffice it to say that I look forward to spending as much time learning this lens as I can.
