  • Tamron stepped up and fixed it. I really do not know a lot about lens construction. Apparently, this was the back of the front element - it is quite thick. It was described as being 'part of the ...
  • Created discussion thread Color Noise?
    I just made my first more serious attempt with astrophotography.  I'm still completely new to this. I'm not sure what you call what I'm seeing in a few photos, but in the darker areas I can see ...
  • I had a trip over the weekend is why I was cleaning my lenses. So, I haven't contacted them yet. I will try this week to see what they say. What you are referencing might be reflections of that ...
  • I see what you are asking now, but I still believe those are just designed elements of the moving internal hood. I'm pretty sure these aren't simply reflections, dust, etc. It's hard to tell from ...
  • I might add that I believe there have been images from early on that have exhibited a slight softness in a small area that this may explain. I didn’t notice until after the Amazon return period. I ...
  • The lens has a built in lens hood and their is an additional internal hood element that extends and detracts with the lens when zooming in and out.
  • Created discussion thread Help Identifiy Lens Issue
    I just got my lenses out to give them their first really good cleaning and found something that I honestly don't know if I just haven't noticed it since it was new or if it is something that has ...
  • Created discussion thread Telephoto Prime (Nikon) for Landscapes?
    Has anyone had success with using a prime telephoto for landscapes?  I realize that vibration control probably provides the biggest benefits with telephoto and landscapes, but I would at least ...
  • Created discussion thread D750 Service Advisory Question
    I see a few posts about there being a delay for parts on their repair.  How long will the service advisory cover this repair?  Like if you choose to wait a while until the initial rush is over or ...
  • I'm not sure what to believe, but there's a guy on Youtube that goes by 'Angry Photographer' who seems to know what he's talking about to me anyway.  He explains that the issue in this service ...
  • I know, these are two pretty radically different bag types and this is a really personal decision, but just throwing it out there for any opinions.  Currently I am trying to carry a Nikon D750, ...
  • Thanks! Yeah, I probably will have to go in and selectively make adjustments.  I generally despise doing so.  Seems like the handy magic masking never seems to leave very clean edges behind, etc.
  • I may have actually spent a lot less time on these than I believed.  I worked on them on my laptop while on my trip and then started from scratch at home.  The first one was started with the ...
  • Created discussion thread CC Seattle Sunrise Cityscape
    I'm pondering how I might better process these cityscapes of Seattle.  I guess I caught a pretty rare clear winter day and got Mt. Rainier in the background.  So, I was happy about that. No tripod ...
  • Created discussion thread Travel Storage Security
    I'm curious what people who have experience travelling with expensive DSLR gear do with their gear when they just can't take it with them while on a trip?  I'm reserving a room with an in room ...
  • Created discussion thread Checking New Lens Copy Quality
    I just got in a new Tamron 24 70 with a sizable rebate that needs to be postmarked by 1/15.  Should I be testing this lens out pretty hard before sending in the rebate and registering it for the ...
  • I certainly hoped that is the case.  I endure exceptional criticism and it was criticized how carelessly I was handling my new camera equipment.  Probably somebody looking to try to get agreement ...
  • Thank you and everyone for your input.  I very much appreciate it!
  • Thanks for the suggestion!  I'll keep an open mind about it.  If a decision were based on the DXOMark performance the 85 would appear to slay the other options handily.  Maybe I could take up ...
  • I have considered just sticking with the 50mm and looking up the range for a telephoto zoom, but I'm questioning just how much need I would have for any lens that is only 70mm+.  I'm stepping back ...
