Default Dead flower - A200 + Tamron 28-300mm macro mode

I'm having fun with this lens. I set the zoom to 300mm (or thereabouts), get about 1-2 ft from the subject and shoot. The results are very surprising...

Great photos Tullio. Very crisp and sharp....the very effect I cannot seem to get in close ups with my 18-250 Tamron. I have now purchased a f2.8 90mm Tamron which initially shows great improvement with close up flower pictures.
Mind you, I wouldn't swop my 18 -250 for anything else for general work especially when I am travelling

Thanks, Fred. The Tamron 28-300mm is a good walk around lens and it has great macro capability. However, it produces soft images between 230-300mm unless you stop it down to f9-f11. I find f11 to be the sharpest of all apertures. Of course to shoot at f11 you need light (and a lot of it) or use high ISO (800 or even 1600). The good news is, the A200 handles high ISO fairly well.
