The TAMRON 18-270mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD (Model B008) is quite a controversial lens. I just had to get one to find out for myself what this lens is all about. Follow my blog as I use this lens on a daily basis and discover for yourself if this lens is indeed a diamond in the rough, or if it simply just another average, try to do it all, kit level lens.

Edit: Hippo (I thought it was Rhino but look closely on the font op the truck) just happens to be the name of this old truck. The image below is a 3 shot panorama of the truck. Who said panoramas are just reserved for landscapes!

At the truck show on the day there were a collection of modern trucks on display, however this old truck blew the competition away in terms of looks, character and pose :-)

Hi, what a brilliant photo. Let me ask you what do you mean by panorama here: three horizontal or vertical photos? And what software do you use to stitch together the photos and to correct distortion? Congrats on the photo!

Thank you.

Yes, I took three vertical shots (portrait) and combined them using Photoshop CS5. Some minor perspective correction was applied to the resulting image. I've only been using CS5 for a little while now, but it is worth every cent. It is pretty capable at working out most of the issues you would face sticthing a pano manually.

Oh, the name of the truck is actually Hippo. My memory is not what it used to be :-)
