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."

Hi Bobbie, yes as soon as it is available, thanks Josh
Hi there, After a year of using wide Tamron lense on Nikon it stopped focusing in liveview mode. It looks like body problem but other lenses work fine. With viewfinder everything is ok but in liveview it just move focus in one side or other without stopping in correct position. I think it is something in connection between body and lense but maybe someone knows more abou this problem. ...

Yes, I didn't mention flare, but that is much the same with any very wide angle lenses.
Thanks guys some useful tips there, appreciate it.
You won't be disappointed with the Nikon 300mm f/4 with ultimately the x1.4 t/c.
Hi, I have also researched the 70d for video work and what I have read and seen (youtube etc) it does seem to get great reviews. Using the touch screen to focus on certain areas of the scene looks like an excellent little feature me. Ive read that the STM lenses are great because of the quiet sound, I personally overdub my vids with music so the focus sounds does not worry me. Lots of pe...

That's a all very re-assuring! Thank you all for taking the time to comment! Very excited now and feeling (almost) fully prepared!! X
IMO the Centon 500mm mirror lens was a real dog and incapable of producing anything like a sharp or detailed image ..... I did have one and much to my shame I sold it.

I think that you would find the focusing performance of the Nex-6 rather poor after your Nikon if you are depending on the kit lens. The optical performance of the Sony 16-50PZ is similar to that of your Nikon 18-70. The way that the Nex-6 focuses (PDAF, followed by a relatively large area of CDAF refinement), coupled with the softness of the lens (especially at 50mm) means that you will g...

Do you mean you are getting soft shots? What settings are you using regards aperture and shutte speed - the moon moves surprisingly quickly and I am wondering if it is that. Other things I can think of are when manual focus you often do not push the focus ring all the way to the stop ('beyond infinity' despite what Buzz Lightyear may think). Are you using mirror lock up and remote release?

Just a little update - I love this camera! To be fair I don't have too much experience with cameras, so not too much value should be placed on the fact that I really like this one. But all I can say is it's the best camera I've had and I'm really enjoying it. Shots come out really well and the 11-22mm lens is super useful too. Haven't even learnt how to use all the various settings ...

I had one...don't think there is a better "general" lens for crop cameras. Have a look at MPB etc, i'd always buy second hand. f/2.8 and super fast focusing. I've moved to full frame and so it had to go... I have the 17-40 - I wouldn't use this as a replacement for the 17-55 on a crop camera.
I have a formatt pro stop on my tamron 24-70. This uses the cheap cokin p holder so the combined cost of filter and holder is a lot less than the Lee stopper or the Lee holder. Colour cast if any is easily fixed in processing and as its made of resin if dropped or stuffed into a camera bag it wont break. As with any 10 stopper make sure you have a very sturdy tripod as image softness may be a p...
