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.

Rusty Dove

Taken at Staglands here:

I just love the pic because of the pose of the dove and also the way the white clean feathers contrasts the grungy, rusty location.

10mm Wellington Waterfront

One of first photos I've taken with my new 10-24mm Tamron. This is an HDR shot at midday. Due to harshness etc. I've decided to take a 3 shot 2 EV bracketed photo so I can get some good details pulled out during HDR processing.

This 10-24mm Tamron rocks! (click to enlarge)

First Tamron 10-24mm Photo


Yup, got a Tamron 10-24mm lens, secondhand that was only used once at half the trade price. I feel truly blessed. I have never before shot at 10mm. So, today was the first sunlight day since I've taken delivery of the lens. So, during lunch (hard light and all) I took the opportunity to see what 10mm is all about.

I did not expect the image below to turn out as well as it has. Thanks to the guy bottom right busy taking a photo of the ball at the Civic Square.

I hope you like.
