Squirrel,

Awsome! I haven't had any experience using Tamron Lenses, but if the shots you posted hereare any indication, they make some decent lenses.

Squirl033,

Lovely set of photos! really great!

Love the exposure on the apple blossoms, symmetry of the ferns, and the animals in their seemingly natural habitat. The rabbit photo seems a bit busy on the right hand side (maybe a simple crop would help).

But otherwise congratulations, lovely pix!

Paul

nice photos. any thoughts about the 20D vs. the 30D? (I have the 20D and was wondering). also, I don't have any experience with the tamron lens - is there a big difference price wise or quality wise with the canon lenses? many thanks.

having bever owned a 20D, i can't personally compare the two, but according to the specs and reviews, the 30 is just a minor refinement. basic functions and image quality are the same.

the Tamron lens i have seems to be exceptionally good, though to be honest i don't own any Canon lenses. i did research the matter, and this particular lens was very highly rated by users. it offers a respectable wide angle at the short end and a useful telephoto at the other, which makes it a good all-round lens. it's about $400, compared to about $1100 for the Canon 24-105 "L", which is the closest Canoncompetition in terms of focal range. i haven't used the latter, so i can't say if there's anything about it that would make it worth the extra $700 or not...but the Tamron seems well built, and seems to take pretty good pictures.

hi Ken, i don't use my FZ20 much, i'm still in that obsessive "playing-with-my-new-toy" stage with the Canon, and a friend is using the FZ20 until her new FZ7 arrives. i expect the FZ20 will get more use once the novelty of the Canon wears off, but it will definitely see much more limited duty... :G
