Trying out the Tamron

Got a used Tamron 28-300mm lens for my Canon for $30 on craigslist yesterday… Super excited about trying it out and having a Macro lens to add to the growing lens family. Here are the first shots I got with it

  1. Did you compare the Tamron zoom lens against Canon zooms? I use Nikon. I returned the Tamron I tried, bit the bullet, and got the Nikon 80-400 mm. The Tamron color came out a bit off, the focus was a little soft and the lens zoom tended to slide if I titled it. Oops! The 28-300 is a zoom not a macro.


  2. I haven’t been able to try out the Tamron against the comparable size Canon because I’m a broke grad student and getting it fairly used is still pushing my budget but hopefully one day šŸ™‚ I’m still getting used to it thought… My biggest thing is that it zooms in and out in the opposite direction as the Canon lenses do so that keeps throwing me off
