Tamron 18-270mm 365 road test

I'm the (increasingly happy) recipient of a lens which Tamron would like to see tested and reviewed over the course of a year (see here ). I've been asked by the editorial team to post my daily uploads in here as well. I've been given permission to drop the links in here to an off-site blog, thedayszoompast , which over time should become easy to browse to answer any specific queries. I'll try and answer questions about the lens in this thread for anyone who has them. Here are the first five days in order:

Congratulations on being the lucky recipient of this lens! It would be really useful to know which camera you are using it on and the camera settings and focal length used for each image. Good luck with the project.

Thanks Sandra, I'll take up your suggestion and start adding that info to the blogs. In the meantime, I don't strip out the Exif, so it should all be there.

Thanks for the technical info, I am now the proud owner of this lens too and am taking it on holiday in a couple of weeks. It's good to see that already there is a good range of subjects and I shall be checking in daily to gain some insight on how to get the best out of the lens and my new D7000!

Wow great shot - so it's an excellent macro lens as well? Was that the optimum zoom amount for macro, or would it have got closer with more zoom?

Tamron couldn't have got a better candidate to do this for them, David.
Excellent.

It will go another fifteen percent larger Joshua. I'll try to post another here later from the same shoot, showing the absolute limit.
Thank you very much Cole Smile

Superb images so far David. You've inspired me to get out my 18-270mm (albeit the version before this one) and try to do a variety of shots with it. Mind you, you've set the bar pretty high (and I'm only using a Canon 400D), but if you keep coming up with the goods I might trade it in for the new model. Will be watching with interest.
