O.K. Finally got some shots with the Tammy 180

  1. Here are a few with the new Tamron 180. Not the greatest composition or anything, but I think it's a keeper IMO. No sharpening done on any images. Zinnias and Day Lilly straight out of the camera @ ISO 400. Slight brightness/contrast adj on others.

    1/250 f4

    1/40 f11

    Thanks for looking. Now I just have to learn to use it.

    The last one is great - perfect amount of DOF to keep the near petal and the stamen in sharp focus.

    A keeper indeed. Is it the same size/weight as the Nikkor?
  4. Tom,

    Very nice shots. I especially like the lily with the fence in the background. Very nice composition. And I second Zach... the last image is a perfect choice of aperture.

    It looks to me like you're learning this lens very quickly. So, keep shooting some more great images of this wonderful Buckeye State.

    God bless.
  5. Thanks Zach, for the kind words. There was a little luck involved since I don't have DOF preview. I'll take it though.
  6. I can't answer that Bernard. I have never seen the Nikkor 200 and do not remember on the Nikkor 105, as I have never owned one. The tamron is very light weight. It is about the same barrel diameter as the 80-200 f2.8 Two-ring, but about 1 inch shorter without the hood. With the hood, it is longer than the 80-200 (4" long hood), but much lighter. Thanks for the comment
  7. Thank you very much Doug. That is so nice to hear. I appreciate your feedback.
