The first generation of Tamron’s affordable supertelephoto zoom took the world by storm when it was released less than three years ago.  Never before had the market seen such incredible reach (up to 600mm on a full frame DSLR) in such an affordable, well executed package.  The lens wasn’t without faults, but even when later […]

August 18, 2016 Tamron Tap In Console Review and How To

Why the Tap In console? When rival third party lens maker Sigma introduced their USB dock in 2013 it was heralded as a great move. The Sigma Optimization Pro software allowed users to customize certain aspects of lens behavior (like autofocus and optical stabilization) as well as allowing Sigma to distribute firmware updates for lenses […]

May 9, 2016 Tamron SP 85mm f/1.8 Di VC USD Review

January 12, 2016 35mm Shootout!

20Over the past month I’ve been taking advantage of having a number of 35mm alternatives on hand at the same time.  I’ve owned Canon’s underrated EF 35mm f/2 IS USM for several years, and recently acquired Tamron’s new SP 45mm f/1.8 Di VC USD (standing in for the Tamron 35mm f/1.8 VC).  I’ve also been […]

October 23, 2015 Fotodiox WonderPana Filter System Review

Early this year I reviewed the new Tamron 15-30mm f/2.8 VC lens. I was very impressed by it and gave it an extremely favorable review. I had many requests to do a direct comparison of it with the Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS that I had reviewed last year upon its release, and so I […]
