Or reshoot the same moon shot on a clear night and compare them side by side.

I hear you, Randy,I have to say the picture of that doll is extraordinarily sharp. Even noticable when resized. I wanna do some comparisons with a similar subject. For portraits a little softness is actually beneficial as you know. The "portrait" mode actually softens the image. In the modeling shot above,I also added a polarizer to give it richer, lusher colors. So I wasn't going after getting it as sharp as possible.

All in all, the Tamron compares quite well. Its softest spots are actually not at 300mm as I have seen stated elsewhere, butin the wider angle range at its widest aperture. I saw a dramatic difference when comparing it at 50mm f4.0 to the fixed 50mm lens. Not just a minor difference as at f8.0. But at most settings I am very happy with the lens and I have other choices if I am going for greatest quality vs. versatility.

Hi Folks!

Just because was imperative, I refitted the "Kit" lens, & today my wife received a "Bouquet...here I shoot this example, using my last acquisition for my 7D equip a Sigma EF-500 DG Super that I bounce (As always when I shoot at home), to our white ceiling. OK...I already know 100% how to obtain the best results with my specific Sigma strobe, Bounce ALWAYS +2 flash compensation, doesn't matter for me...I really can live with it!

Peace,

Alex 007:|

Lovely Minolta Fans,

Today after an a very long time, i decided to fit my Sigma Apo Macro/Zoom 70-300mm 7 these two photos was shoot at macro setting with my Sigma EF-500 DG Super flash unit acquired recently, bounce to my white ceiling...flash compensation on the camera body +2 as always it's needed with the Sigma flash on a Maxxum/Dynax 7D body.

I hope that you will enjoy...!

Peace,

My dear Friend,

Did you mean to my Sigma flash...YES on "Ceiling Bouncing" photos in my home. (Near 90% of my use at my home photos!)

As "Fill In" outside at "P" use NO...the "0" flash compensation works well:?

Did you know what happen to Tamron 18-250mm zoom lens & also to the Zeiss one..that we know must be on the market during this time?

My best wishes always!

Peace,

Very nice work, Alex. How close can you go in the macro setting at full zoom?
