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.

Cicada - Zealandia

I've discovered Zealandia in Wellington today. And even though our trip was poorly planned and quite short, I've managed to capture a couple of nice pics of birds, landscape, architecture and insects. Now that I have a feel for the reserve I will make plans for a re-visit that will be more focused and hopefully also produce more photos :-)

Below a cicada on a wire fence. It was taken with a +4 macro filter on my Tamron zoom lens. Lighting was added to with my popup flash covered with a simple diffuser.
