Hey everyone,I'll be travelling to South America (Chile, Peru and Bolivia) in Mid-May for 2.5 weeks with my friend. I'm from Asia so it's kind of a trip of a lifetime for me.I'm having some trouble choosing what lenses to bring as it's hard to balance between quality, safety and weight. We'll be staying in decent hotels (3 stars) throughout but my concern will be during transits and at tourist locations as we will mainly be travelling by bus and train. Also, it's just the two of us (my friend...

Hello!    So after doing tons of research i decided to pair my D750 with a tamron 24-70 2.8f VC. Once i got the lens in i noticed the slightest amount of "play" in the zoom ring. You can pretty much wiggle the zoom ring slightly with out moving the actual zoom and i was wondering if this is normal for this style tamron or i got a bad copy possibly? If this is normal then i am starting to think i might have to spend the extra on the nikon.

Hello everyone, Hope you are well. I am planning to buy some ziplock bags that I can use to put my D810 in when coming in from cold environment to warm environment. I was looking online but not sure what size ziplock bag would be good enough to encapsulate D810 with Tamron 24-70 lens and be able to close? I am looking at 15" x 20" but I don't know if that is large enough, maybe not. Any idea from anyone or someone who uses one? Many thanks :) --http://www.mf-photography.com

Does anyone out there own this combination, the Tamron 24-70 and the A77II? If so, what has been your experience with focus accuracy and the need for MFA?  In particular, do you find a huge discrepancy in the needed MFA value at 24mm versus 70mm? Reason I ask is so far I have tried out two copies and both are way off in needed MFA at both ends.  Both copies are off by as much as 13 points.  At 24mm, I need around a -6 to -7 to get tack sharp photos.  But setting this makes the 70mm shots very...

I am considering buying one with Sony A mount.  The reviews are awesome and beside  vignetting and barrel distortions at f/2.8, and 24 focal distance (which are somehow normal and also present in the more expensive zooms). My main worry is how the hybrid aspherical lens is going to last in time. My understanding is that the hybrids are made from a spherical lens behind which optical quality resin is injected to form an aspherical type of lens by superposition. This resin (some call it...

Hello Friends.. Need some help... recently I bought Nikon D750 and Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 DI VC USD Lens ... I am having battery drain issues .. I thought its a battery issue but I tried it with other battery, still the same issue. A full charged battery takes only 150-160 shots though nikon claims 1200 plus shots. To do further research I started using my Nikon f1.8G prime lens and I found that the camera battery is performing much better... takes around 600 plus shots with some video...

This is about zooms: 16-35, 24-70, and 70-200. Canon is unique in offering both F2.8 and F4 versions. Nikon only has F2.8. Sony FE (the new A7 models) are only F4. But there are differences: 1) While the 70-200 has IS for both apertures, the F4 has for the 16-35 and the 24-70. For low light stills, IS may provide 2-4 F-stops more light with a slower shutter speed (although with more motion blur of a moving subject) while the F2.8 is just one F-stop faster. For low light stills, F4 IS would...

Hi, I am going on a trip through Europe in a month and am considering replacing my APS-C camera (Sony A65) and all my lenses with the A7r. Most of the photos I like to take are landscapes, hence why I am considering the A7r. The problem is I cannot decide what lens I should pair with this camera. Initially, I will only have enough money for 1 lens so it is going to have to be a zoom. Currently I am looking at the 24-70 lenses as the main lens I use on my A65 is the Tamron 17-50. Here are the...

I am planning to buy the Canon 6D nowadays, and I cannot decide whether to get it with the kit lens or to buy Tamron 24-70. I am ready to pay little extra for the Tamron if it is much better than the Canon 24-105. For me the focus accuracy is much important than sharpness and I don't care about vignetting and sharpness loss at the corners since my objects will mostly not be at the corners. What would you get if you were going to choose between? Thanks Adem
