A shot from the widest end of the Tamron 18-270mm.
One which shows the largest possible image size at the close focus distance (I was slightly too close with this one, pushing the focus point behind the eye).
Original file from my 365 project.
Manufacturer's Description: "Tamron's SP AF 14mm f2.8 Aspherical (IF) is an ultra wide angle lens that creates a perspective far beyond the conventional ultra wide. With its larger 2.8 aperture, the main subject practically jumps out of the image. By using two Hybrid Aspherical lens elements, this lens delivers high quality images with minimal light fall off at the image corners. To optimize handling, the lens incorporates a push/pull AF/MF Switchover mechanism on the focus ring. * AF/MF change over mechanism for focusing ring Switching between AF and MF is easily accomplished by sliding the focus ring back and forth. Manually focusing is smooth and precise with the wide focusing ring."
Manufacturer's Description: "Tamron's fast fixed telephoto lens delivers a remarkable and exacting performance, as demanded by todays professionals. Two large LD (Low Dispersion) glass elements in the front group provide high contrast and crystal-clear image quality at f2.8. and the floating focusing system improves optical performance especially at close shooting distances. 9 specially shaped aperture blades form a near perfect circle to create excellent background blur for portraits. The true value of this lens is apparent when photographing sports, low-light theatre performances and wildlife. Available in Canon, Nikon and Minolta AF fittings. The lens also features a new AF/MF switchover mechanism* * AF/MF change over mechanism for focusing ring Switching between AF and MF is easily accomplished by sliding the focus ring back and forth. Manually focusing is smooth and precise with the wide focusing ring."
Manufacturer's Description: "A standard zoom lens from a wide 28mm to a medium telephoto range of 80mm. The use of aspherical elements in the front group reduces the number of elements required and the use of strong engineering plastic in the barrel makes the body a light 237g."
Manufacturer's Description: "Tamron's conveniently small and lightweight AF28-105 is the perfect standard zoom providing medium telephoto, ideal for close ups and zooming out to true wideangle for group shots, tight indoor spaces and landscapes. Internal Focusing (IF) once only available on professional lenses, permits easy handling and practical use of filters."
An adapter for Nikon to MFT,say, changes nothing optically but simply enables a given Nikon lens to fit on the camera and costs around £20. It has no electrical connections so any auto functions that the lens has will be unusable. As mikehit says, life is a lot easier if the lens has an aperture ring because you can then easily use aperture priority auto on the camera. Since that is what I u...
I would agree with mikehit - both my Tamron lenses have VR and it does 'just happen'.

Thanks for that great tip about Ebay Keith...that's an option that may be of interest. Thanks to all you guys for taking the time to give me some great advice to pass on. I'm very grateful. Elaine :D:D

Ha, Yeh it's on autocorrect, it obviously preferred tampon to tamron!!! Doh!
As others have said it sounds like you're shooting at maximum aperture at a longer focal length. If you were shooting at the wide end [and as sausage says, ideally avoid that as it will distort faces somewhat if you're fairly close in], at f3.5 on an APSc body it's unlikely anyone would be out of the focus area unless you were in really close and the front subject was a fair bit ahead of the fu...

Yes, there are a lot of profiles but this one is missing... When I bought phantom drone - I found its profile in web. It was easy to add. This time I cannot find it.. Mmm I ll try to create my own, at the moment I've downloaded the tool but didnt understand how does it work, strange that it is still missing..

Thanks everyone for your comments which I have taken on board, I have looked at the Sony A6000 but it does not have tethering which is one of the gripes I have with Sony with my A77. Fuji have now come up with the XT-10 which I might have a look at when it is released. Frank

Thank you for the offer, but I think I'm holding out for a new camera at this point.

Hi Wayne, Welcome to ePhotozine - what lenses do you have? +1 for what Steve said Stuart
I went from D90 to D7100 and have not regretted that decision. I literally wore my D90 out so had to get a new body and they just weren't available anymore. We did some research and decided upon the D7100. I've had it about 6 months now and very happy with the performance. I use a range of lenses including a 70-300mm with it.

I agree to a point, Denny. Speaking for myself I don't think it would have put me off trying macro, it is just that after reading up there were easier ways to do it and I can be a lazy sod. Once I had tried the dioptre lens then if I had been tight on money I would have been happy trying the reversing rings.

Thanks for your replies everyone. I already have the mk1 version of this lens, but it got covered in sand & hasn't worked properly since. When zooming it feels & sounds rough, & it also struggles to auto-focus, & when it does focus the image is blurred, not focused properly at all. I thought of sending it away to get repaired, but I was being quoted prices roughly around the price of this lens.
The old Canon 70 - 200mm L f/2.8 is excellent, and there are good deals second hand as some want to trade up to the latest. I use it with the 6D and it performs very well.
That is an interesting question- The lens is 6 years old and the Canon 7D is brand new out of the box. But then the SLI is also brand new and it works perfectly with it. So it works with a entry level DSLR but doesnt with a camera that costs a $1000 more and is the top level enthusiast camera. Kinda drives a person crazy. Thanks for the response
