Zoom Lens Sony A77

True: any piece of sophisticated engineering likely will be a compromise between competing parameters. However, I think some of the bad rap the Tamron 18-250 has received from some of us can not be justified, and smack of a strong bias.

Here are some of my better shots with the Tamron 18-250 (fully open lens!). Can not see much wrong with it. I had about 10 seconds to catch the moment. Changing lenses to get some better IQ ? I would not even think of risking it.

The rubber grip on my lens deformed over the years. An easy job for the Tamron service to exchange, was done free of charge here in Toronto (done by Amplis).

At a recent show in this town here I have seen the new Tamron 16-300 mm. Execution / finish suggests much better quality. Will go here .....

Strolling through downtown Denver, I run into this couple posing for their wedding album ....

.... for some $700.- in about three month. Worthwhile to wait for ?
