All hand held and windy out. Talk about shallow DOF!!! I have to use a tripod.


VR+1.7TC=500D

Brew -

Good work!

I can relate to the macro vs. wind issue: out here in Kansas, we have wind to spare . . . I finally sprung for a Plamp a couple of weeks ago, but haven't tried it out yet.

P.S. - I like the last one the best, with the gauze-like white and the sharp interior. I might have even cropped it a bit to see what an all white background would look like . . .

Hi Bruce: Enjoyed your shots. Mind sharing your experience of the Tamron 90 vs 70-200VR combo -- other than the weight, cost -- in terms of working distance, sharpness, ease of use, any special characteristic that one lens has that the other don't?

I think the 70-200VR is more versatile generally, and I have seen many excellent pictures taken by equally excellent photographers. But I don't know, the weight bothers me, as I like to travel light and enjoy the shoot and scenery as well.

The Tamron 90 is also highly regarded -- incidentally, have you used it for taking portraits, and would appreciate seeing some of your portrait shots with that lens, if you have.

Thanks for sharing.

Josh,

I really haven't had time to put them through a good test as I just received both the Tamron and the 500D last week. I need to get a good sunny/calm day when I can get them on a tripod to really test them.

I think working distance is about the same but obviously the Tamron can be used for portrait shots like you said and longer distance landscape shots and the 500D can't.

The VR shots also had the 1.7TC on it so the next test I'll be taking that off of the lens and shooting that way.

Thanks
