My First Day (and Night) with the Tamron 150-600
5 months ago

I collected this new lens from the post office today and had a chance to give it a quick spin at lunchtime (and a quicker one on the way out of work).

It is a beast. Huge and heavy.

Shooting conditions were not great - Australian midday sun (although it is winter, so not as bad as in mid summer). The shots of the Purple Swamphen Chick are lighter than reality as it is a dark bad with dark eyes, and I wanted to see a bit more eye detail. There was some light cloud tonight, so the moon is not quite as clear as it might have been.

All shots at 600mm; most wide open. Moon shot was handheld; the others either handheld or leaning on the window of the hide.
