Re: Tamron 18-270 medium light...not good ...help

I recommend either a cheap 50mm 1.7 or similar fixed lens (under $100), or else, and this may be better, a Tamron 17-50 f2.8, which can be had for around $350 to $400 give or take.

For better zooming in, well, first, consider if cropping might just cut it, and if not, any semi zoom, eg. 70-200 at f4 the slowest, f2.8 better. f4 would be cheaper, and just fast enough.

Also, use burst shooting, and take a bunch of shots that way. This way you get a couple that will come sharper than the others  because of less motion blur. eg. if, say, 10% of the photos succeed, if you only take 1 photo, you get a 10% chance of a good photo. If you take 10 photos, you get a probability of 100% success for one shot (but not really).
