I know there are a few members that have the Tamron 15-30mm. I have an odd question. Does it have a metal lens mount? I'm asking because I bought another lens from a 3rd party company and now have a very expensive and unrepairable paper weight.

I have the old one and the mount is metal. It is a fantastic lens. Although I think in general it is pretty easy to turn expensive lenses into paperweights, regardless of the mount material.

Thanks. My wife suggested getting a nice backpack to carry the gear while hiking. I guess that would provide more protection for the gear.
