Re: A question re Tamron 28-200 and SS

The age-old formula of 1/FL came from the film and early digital cameras with an effective 8 to 12mp of resolution.  Higher resolution sensors, such as 42mp, will require at least 1/2*FL or 1/3*FL for equivalency.

Shooting 200mm at 1/100 second will need to take advantage of IBIS to obtain a high statistical average of sharp shots, for the average shooter.  In testing, I have shot 200mm on the 28-200m at 1/20 second and obtained about a 20% probability of a critically sharp shot.  As a note, I developed stable shooting techniques back in the film days when wasted shots were costly.

At 200mm, on this lens, I will try to shoot 1/200 second minimum (relying on IBIS).  If I shoot at slower speeds, I will often take multiple shots to increase the probability of obtaining a critically sharp shot on the 61mp A7RIV.
