If you're off on your travels soon and are wondering what lenses to take, have you considered taking just one lens?
You may think that this might limit you photographically, but if you take a Tamron zoom lens, this won't be the case. Mega zoom lenses like the 16-300mm from Tamron mean that it's now easier than ever before to carry every single zoom length you might want to use on one camera, in one lens. There are many advantages to a mega or super zoom lens and 5 of the most important ones are listed below.
Here are 5 reasons why a Tamron zoom will be ideal for photography:
One lens does it all - A lens like the new Tamron 16-300mm f/3.5-6.3 will enable you to to take shots of pretty much anything thanks to its wide zoom range. From landscapes to portraits, city shots and macro images of close up subjects, the lens will be able to cope.
Lighter - Having one lens will mean that you can travel lighter on a trip out - you won't have to worry about carrying different lenses to shoot different subjects, saving your back at the same time. Travelling lighter is also good if you're flying - leaving more room for personal accessories without going over the airline's limit.
Less to pack - You'll have less to pack in your bags with only one lens, allowing you to choose to bring more accessories, personal items, or simply pack lighter.
Reach far - With a reach of 300mm at the long end, he new 16-300mm lens will allow you to get close to all kinds of subjects, be it wildlife, or far away buildings or statues. The lens' effective Vibration Compensation will help you to get a steady shot handheld at long focal lengths.
Shoot close up - The 16-300mm is a macro lens too, enabling you to take photos as close as 39cm at 300mm, which is really close for a lens with such a long reach. So, you can capture the wide vistas, and also the smaller, more intricate details of your travels, all without changing your lens.
