Default Obligatory "Duck" Shots

Well, anyone who frequents any photography forums should know what this means. New Lens time!!


Well, I don't have any ducks but I do have a Macaw so he will have to do!

The lens is a Tamron 70-200 f/2.8 Macro.

I sold my Canon 70-200 f/4L back in fall and was planning to upgrade to f/2.8. Well, long story short, I got laid off from my day job and I needed to replace it quicker than I intended so that I can make some money. Found this one at a really good price and was just having some fun with it today.

Overall impression so far is pretty damn good. Extremely sharp, about the same as my f/4L was. Focus is slower but still pretty quick and plenty workable. I LOVE the push/pull selection for AF/MF mode. Weight is heavier than my f/4L but that is to be expected. The "Macro" capability is going to be really nice!

and a few misc samples, mainly at f/2.8 and all across the ISO board.













The new toy!

Ya, we just got it back from the cage builder today and started putting primer on it. We haven't decided what color to go with yet. So far it's just been driven around the field a little bit, but we are taking it to a crawling competition in couple weeks.
