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."
You of course can sell it on when you get back if you don't need it afterwards
Merci, Thank you for the information Good evening
I hadn't got the camera pointed at the sun, the sun was at nearly 90 degrees to the lens and I had a lens hood on and a hat on the camera to protect it. The sun was striking from the side but for a longish period, hence where the damage is. After over 30 years of photography I think I know not to point at the sun, thanks. never said you did did I "you were unlucky taking close ups"

Nikon EL-Nikkor 50mm f2.8 enlarger lens which works very well reversed to give 2:1 magnification or more. It is sharpest when stopped down at least one or preferably two stops. In the image it is teamed up with Nikon PB4 bellows and a Nikon D810.

I'd agree entirely with Len about the 400. having recently come back from the Serengeti/Tarangire as well as Nakuru, one can safely say that the 100-400 Canon l is marvelous for antelope, elephant and other big game. (Included in big game are birds like bustard and kavirondo cranes (gt crested) No problem - its razor sharp, very good IS etc etc (on a 70D).; Birds, even large ones - say fish e...
nothing wrong with the 10-20mm and if your doing exposures under 30 sec you will need a tripod. Andy Yea Andy there is nothing wrong with it at all, I'd just prefer a faster lens tbh. I am beginning to realise that I do enjoy star / astro photography but would rather simply get a good, fast wide angle, zoom lens with just landscape + travel photography in mind. Is there any site that can re...
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...

Thanks to all for your help. I have persevered will the close up rings, taking on board all the helpful comments and i am getting some mixed results. I'll keep at it. Thanks again.
Never liked superzooms but friend has the Sigma 18-250 and photos taken with it are really good
Thanks for that Kevin & Phil. I picked up in another thread that Kenko was meant to be a decent set, so I'm glad I got them. Will hopefully get to play with them tomorrow! :) Cant wait! I will remember that about shorter focal length - thanks!
I did a test with the Tamron lens at full aperture with it fitted to my Yashica FR1 and it seems to be fully 'useable' at full aperture f2.5

Character is something that both good and bad lenses have. Movie makers might choose the "Cooke look" or the "Zeiss look". The lens makers go to a lot of trouble to make their lenses consistent because they don't want to see any difference, other than perspective, when the cinematographer changes to a lens of different focal length. The 85mm Helios lens is highly prized for its unique bokeh,...
