Tamron 60mm f2 Macro First Shots
Jan 13, 2011

My new macro came in today after only a 1 day weather delay. I sort of bum rushed the UPS guy at his truck. I couldn't wait!

The weather is too cold for an extended shoot outside, besides everything is dead, so I decided to shoot random items in my shop.

No fancy charts or product set-ups. No special settings. I just slapped on the lens and hit the shutter.

One thing I immediately noticed was some AF hunting when focusing. I'd read about this in some reviews so it didn't bother me but I soon realized it wasn't the lens, it was me. I was ever so slightly moving. I guess coming off a 24 hour caffeine induced work shift will do that to you. I'll do some tripod shots in the future.

Tamron has a nice $100 rebate on this lens until April.
