I decided to try out an old MF Tamron Adaptall 28-70/3.5 the other day at the Brooklyn Botannical Gardens. My budding photog Amanda wanted to shoot flowers so while she used my 105VR, I used the macro settings on this Tammy. It goes down to 1:4 and was pretty easy to focus on the D3 and surprisingly sharp. All handheld. Does anyone else out there have one of these?
