My favourite new lens
6

The Tamron 18-300 is my new go-to lens for 90% of my needs. I still love my 16-55 which certainly has its place. Here are some photos I took today at the Grain Terminal. All processed from raw.

Wide angle.  In-camera lens corrections used. Still some distortion, but nothing bad. Edges are sharp.  Look forward to 3rd party lens profiles.

At 300mm, fairly sharp.

300mm - 100% crop

Grain storage

Loading to freighter

Beautiful selection of flowers along the carpark driveway

Plenty of detail at 300mm. Even more detail in the full file.

In a pinch, a Raynox assists with close-ups.  The next 3 are hand-held, manual focus. Would have been very handy if the lens had a MF/AF switch.
