  • Tough kids at a local farm...
  • I've been having a great time with this lens since buying several months ago. No hesitation to shooting wide-open, and a really terrific range. Really happy with the purchase, and also bought the ...

  • I picked up the Tamron SP 35 several months ago and continue to be very happy with it. This new lens replaced the equiv Sigma Art that I used nearly daily for years. Unlike the Sigma, I'm getting ...
  • I had the Sigma 35 Art since the day it became available. Was my most-used lens, but the AF could never be fully trusted (operator error may be ruled out). So I sold the Sigma when the Tamron 35 ...
  • Mike, I bought the 60 AFS on your recommendation back in 2014 or so. Still one of my very favorite lenses. Used it today, in fact. With that lens on a good body, it feels like the ultimate, ...
  • One other comment on your question: The shift in the reported aperture specifically relates to exposure, not depth of field. So although close focus sees the aperture shift slightly, it's not ...
  • What you're reporting is true for all lenses that aren't of "internal focus" design. The stated apertures are true at infinity, but certainly not at close focus. Consider how far the lens must ...
  • I've had the Tamron 35 1.4 for a few months. In fact, I traded in the Sigma 35 Art toward the purchase. I liked the Sigma, it was my go-to lens since 2014, but the focus was always inconsistent, ...
  • I had the Sigma since the first day it was at my local dealer's, and it was my daily driver for years. However, the AF, carefully calibrated, was a bit erratic. Just never had reason to absolutely ...
  • I traded in my 6-year-old Sigma 35 Art toward the Tamron 35 SP.  Got it with the Tamron dock, and used a Spyder LensCal to calibrate the focus. I'm very happy with the lens, and expect it to be a ...

  • I took this pic 35 years ago. Sunday afternoon, driving back home from a friend's house, hearing fire whistles all over my hometown. Downtown fire was just breaking out. Had a Nikon FE and a ...
  • I have a quality carbon fiber monopod with good ball head on top. Swing that at someone, and you could put their lights out for good.
  • Replied in IR
    My two favorite lenses for DX IR work (Nikon D200): 20mm f3.5 AI; Nikon 35mm F2 AF-D. I've also had good performance with the 18-70 orig kit lens, but favor the primes for size.
  • My first camera was an X-700, and 35 years later I owe a debt of gratitude to that camera for starting me on a lifelong hobby and side gig. Strong points: Bright viewfinder, including nice design ...
  • IMO: The Nikon FE and FE2 were the best designs of the day. Best match needle execution, reliable electronic shutter (with mechanical backup!), aperture priority and manual exposure, bright, ...
  • I was managing a camera store when the T90 came out. It was revolutionary in shape and function. I don't think it's widely recognized for how its design was replicated by every other manufacturer ...
  • The Tamron 35-150 f2.8~4 is a heck of a lens. Had mine for about a month, pleased so far. Reviews are solid. It's not perfect, but for the price ($800 US) it's a value. Optics are good, as is edge ...
  • I had, and used as my everyday lens, the Sigma 35 Art from the week it was released until last month. Sold it, and bought the Tamron 35 SP. Yes, a bit of a risky move, but I have no regrets. I've ...
