I'm loving the Tamron. Light, compact and great image quality. I have experienced the AF issue once, it wasn't a big deal for me; so it's a non-urgent firmware update required.

Here's a link to a 'astro' photo. Nice night but not great location only a few miles from Manchester, England so there's lot's of light pollution.


I'd prefer a bit wider myself; but hey ho you can't have everything........

Thanks for more positive thoughts about the lens and for the sample.

There's no getting away from light pollution here either (about 20 miles south of central London)!

Wider would probably be better on occasion but I think I could live with 17mm quite happily.

If you can get away for a weekend to Wales there are nice dark areas in the Brecon Beacons or in Snowdonia.

Yeah, I went to Wales a couple of time last year just for holidays but with camera in hand. I was hoping to see some stars, but the clouds got in the way..........that's the UK for you.......:-(

Nothing is guaranteed, especially in Wales. There are quite good apps available nowadays. "Clear Outside"  is one of them I'm using for checking the cloud coverage.
