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.

Southward Car Museum

Over the coming weeks I will post some highlights of our trip to the Southward Car Museum yesterday. All in all I took almost 500 photos :-)

So as a start, here is a 5 shot panorama of the main floor of the museum. For those of you who have not yet been, especially if you are a petrol head like me, YOU GOTTA GO!!!

Back to the aim of this blog - my Tamron lens performed beautifully. It allowed me a useful 18mm for most of the shots since you are pretty close to the subject matter being constrained by the insides and layout of the museum. I could also get some nice close ups shots like the badge off a Porche 911, and it gave me the option to take shots of interesting bits at full 270mm zoom to blur out the busy background to isolate the focal point. I must also note that the brilliant image stabilizing allowed me hand held shots throughout not using flash but only museum lighting.
