Here's the latest issue of the new Tamron quarterly magazine.
Original file from my 365 project.
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).
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 I use the 200-500 5.6 on a D700 and D750 and it's a great lens and the VR is amazing I can hand hold it although not for very long periods but should imagine that would be the same for Tamron? I use it mainly for sport the focus speed is good and good in good lighting. I photograph rugby with kick off at 3 so by 4-4.30 it starts to get darker I have to bump the ISO so tend to use my 70-200 2...
I had this lens - tried a friends first and thought it was a good one. Different story when I had mine - hated the lens. Wasn't that happy with the pictures, found it heavy, cumbersome and just didn't like it. Can't put my finger on what I didn't like exactly but just didn't feel happy using it. Sold it and have bought a Canon 100-400 mark ii and mark iii 1.4 converter and love the combo! ...

Although, as vulgar professionals, we have a wide selection of lenses to choose from, we'll take just a few to each job. My own preference is towards longer lenses for portraiture so the 24-70mm would be used only for groups or full-length singles. The 100mm macro probably does 90% of my studio work and I use it rather than the regular 105mm f2.5 because I'm not limited by the minimum focus d...
I'd go for the 18-200, the 28 will be too limiting in enclosed spaces and for street shooting, not wide enough to capture some buildings and other scenes. 200 is still a good telephoto length for a walkabout lens, very useful in fact. I'd guess that the IQ from the 18-200 will be higher than from the 28-300.
Thank you very much.:D

Sigma has always produced more lenses for different cameras makes than Tamron and this may be the reason? Ken

Just read the ephotozone review on the Tamron 28-300 pzd lens. Thankyou, an excellent summary of the performance of this lens. However, I have a question. How is it possible for the performance of this lens (MTF charts) to go right off the scale BEYOND excellent at the 28mm focal length and the 100mm? Is this chart correct for the Tamron or a mis-print? If not a misprint then it is a far bett...
If I do too much PP it feels as though it's not my photo I do see what you mean but it is your photo if the PP is needed to get the image as you want it. Even with top gear there are occasions when quite large adjustments are needed in Lightroom for example. It's always easier to boost contrast than reduce it. One thing to look out for is, is there detail in those lower contrast areas or is it...
I use the Tammy most of the time and have been using a ring flash recently - no problems with the barrel movement at all.

Hi, Andy, as you now have the Nikon d610, may I suggest the Nikon 14-24mm f 2.8, you will not be disappointed, next definitely the Nikon 24-70mm f 2.8, these would cover your wide angle needs and a bit more. Cheers, Darryl.
I owned a Sigma 70-300 Apo a few years ago and unfortunately found it poor at the long end.I used to sell the Tamron one when I worked in the retail sector. At the price it was generally OK. As others have said, try a reputable used equipment dealer such as MPB or LCE to see if they have a Nikon available. Ive used both and found the equipment excellent.
You can get Canon mounts, might fit or need a bit of modification Mounts

Even if there is a problem with the autofocus mechanism you should still be able to achieve correct focus at a certain distance between macro and infinity just by looking through the viewfinder without even trying to focus. So kneel down and look through the viewfinder with the camera pointing down to the ground. Then slowly pan the camera up and at some point you should see the image throug...
