What are your best shots taken with a Tamron lens, and what lens did you use and why?

We're looking for some great examples of shots taken with Tamron lenses, and are planning on some exciting things with Tamron users.

Are we talking about current, recent or discontinued Tamron lenses, I.E, Adaptalls?

If you set my pf to show 60 images and go to page 2 and there're a few candids of people taken with a Tamron 18-270mm (the older version). I use it more than I thought I would. I've used it for some Greenwich pictures too, but can't identify all of them here.

Oh, and my fox pic on page 1 is probably one of my best. Full zoom, hand held through double glazing.

Ok, using the largely undiscovered SP 70-150 f2.8 Adaptall 2, I took this on the Fuji S2 Pro when I used to do some portraits.


With the SP 500mm f8 Adaptall 2 mirror lens, a feathered friend on a cold day, also on the S2 Pro


and with the old faithful SP 28-80 Adaptall 2 on my Konica FC-1, a rock that looks like a horse's head!


Er... nice pics! Smile

Thanks Jas. Pity the ones I'm taking nowadays aren't as good! Sad
All improvements are for the worse! LOL !

I bought the Tamron DiII AF55-200mm f4-5.6 Macro which I took a few shots with at the time but haven't used it since. A budget lens, perhaps, but a useful addition, I thought.

I got caught up in a project which took up most of my time, in which I exclusively used wider angle lenses.

I bought it to compliment my Sigma 18-50mm lens - two lenses which would then cover most of my work.

However - later in the year perhaps! Smile

Or, if you prefer more natural aviators, here's one with the same lens.
