Time for some new photos!

Ok, I promised new photos from the Tamron SP 70-300mm f-5.6 DI VC USD, so here they are! BTW-memo to Tamron; please shorten the name of your lenses!

BTW-DXOMark has tested this lens and doesn't think very highly of it. I feel they may have had a bad sample because it tested just so-so on every Nikon body. I've tried it on my D300 and a friends D700 and was amazed at how well it worked with the full frame sensor and giant light-gathering pixels. It's almost enough to sway me to buy a D700!

Clicking on a photo will bring up a larger version of the photo. The eyes are cropped 100% from the first photo. All were shot on my D300 in 14-bit RAW and converted to JPG by Photoshop CS4.


  1. I just got it and LOVE this lens! you can check out my samples if you like
    just posted a few. Love your work...nice stuff

  2. Nice photos, Douglas! I'm a big fan of guitar photos, though you cannot tell because I have none of mine posted here. Serves to back up what I've said about this new Tamron lens.
