Tamron 90 macro - D90 - Sport !!! (6 samples)

Just got a near new copy of the tammy and what better way to test its focus speed and accuracy than with my daughters netball game. I'll get to the cat later

I normally use an 80-200 AFD so that was my yardstick, the 80-200 gives me 99% shots in the target focus area (when groups of players and bodies around) and early 90% region for spot on the point or player I want.

The tammy around 80% in the area and maybe 70% on the money. Slower to lock and more prone to miss, but still capable of nice results. Tammy also a tad warmer than the nikon but not unpleasant for skin tones etc.

None of these for comp etc, just to give you an idea of results, all f3.2 to f4, neutral PC, +5 sharpness, -1 brightness, +1 contrast CW metering. Lighting was difficult with full sun jumping in and out from the clouds, and plenty of little white areas in frame.

So some of these where I missed

And plenty of these where I was pleased

Skin tones and rendering very nice, this at f4

Resolves quite well also, this was my daughter on the ground below me, just pointed down blind and shot for fun, check the original for the hair definition
