I've recently been experiencing image quality issues using my Tamron 16-300mm lens on my Nikon D3400. There "appears" to be quite clear “motion blur/movement” in images, especially when the lens is fully extended to 300mm. Example images are attached. All photos were taken handheld with VC switched on. I am aware that in order to prevent motion blur/movement and to retain a sharp image, the shutter speed needs to exceed the focal length. I've attached some sample images to try and show the...

Hello, I have a Sony a6000 with adapter Sony LA-EA3 to use a Tamron 16-300. i want to add a teleconverter, not sure if it's better 1.4 or 2 to keep the quality of the pictures. A part from the Sony Teleconverter e mount that is quite expensive are there other options? AF is not a must as even now with the tamron AF is so slow (10 sec) that i don't even use it. Any suggestion for the teleconverter? and maybe also to solve the slow AF of the tamron? thank you

Hi,  With my nikon D500 and TAMRON 16-300,  when taking 2 subsequent pictures with the self timer (5s + 1s) the first picture is always really unsharp and the second one sharp. When i use the live function, both pictures are sharp. What could be the reason for this? I tried out 2 tripods  first picture with self timer after 5s  second picture with self timer after 5s + 1s

Hi all,  I am going on a several week trip to New Zealand, and trying to decide between these two options for my D5200: 1. sigma 17-50 f2.8 + nikon 70-300 AF-P f4.5-6.3 2. tamron 16-300 Please consider these: a. My shooting style is quite general, landscapes, portraits, wildlife. With my 18-140, I find myself using the entire range with the 140 to be a little short.  b. I tend to believe that in NZ I will find the shorter range to be more useful, and that wildlife is not that prominent.  c....

I have a question which has been bugging me for months and now that I am/can be shooting fireworks almost every week. Shooting with a 16-300mm lens, tripod-mounted and shooting by hand (no remote). I am seeking a camera mode, shooting mode or whatever, that would allow me to shoot single or multiple the fireworks but allow for a faster image preview so that I can check on settings and adjust as necessary, then continue shooting. As you know, fireworks can be a very hit-or-miss situation. I...

I am an absolutely new comer to the world of dSLR photography. I have recently joined a bird watching group and have made a few trips with successfully (to the extent permissible) taken birds and nature photographs with my existing point-and-shoot camera. But now I have started realising its limitations and therefore I have recently decided to have a Nikon d5200 which suits my budget. The camera comes as usual with a 18-55 kit lens. The experienced members of the group come with awe raising...

So I'm looking for an all round lens to take travelling with me next you so I don't have to change my lens all the time. So far I've seen the Sigma 18-300mm, Tamron 16-300mm and the Sony 8-250mm. Does anyone know if there is much difference between these lens and which one would be best? Also I'm open to any other suggestions. Thank you, Jess.

I'm using my Tamron 16- 300 on Nikon D5300. Tried smaller aperture and the error appears. The normal aperture range is f/3.5 (@16 mm) to f/6.3 (@300 mm). But manually the aperture can be increased up to f/22 (@16 mm) and f/40 (@300 mm). Decreasing the aperture manually always produce the error message "Error. Press shutter release button again.", when I take the picture. The picture produced look the same as the one taken at the normal, i.e. largest aperture. The EXIF though, shows the...

Hello Everyone, I have been searching the forums to look for recommendations for lens choice. I currently have an old D70 that back in the day I payed extra for a 24-120 FX lens (12 or so years ago). Planning that someday I might go to an FX sensor which did not happen as planned. This gave me a general range of 36-180mm. Based on my shooting habits the 36 is not wide enough I would prefer something a bit wider but the 180mm equivalent zoom is pretty good.  I'm not sure what improvements have...
