Tamron AF 28-300mm Aspherical Zoom Lens

Testing my Tamron lens on my Canon EOS 40D.

Its got everything except image stabilization which I need whenever I get above 175mm or so and or have a slow shutter speed (less than 1/125th or so (it’s an age thing).

Here’s some test shots taken with this lens and mounted on my Canon EOS 40D. The 40D is a 10.1 megapixel DSLR from 2007.

ISO 100, f/6.3 1/160 at 130mm
ISO 100, f/6.3 1/250 at 300mm
ISO 100, f/6.3 1/250 at 300mm
ISO 100, f/6.3 1/200 at 300mm

I purposely shot these wide open (f/6.3) at 300mm because that’s where a lens like this will show its weaknesses. They aren’t as sharp as I’d like but they aren’t horrible either. Everything was shot using the self timer to trip the shutter and of course the camera was mounted on a tripod. This lens will perform better at f/11 and a bit shy of 300mm I would think. That will be my next test. Stay tuned.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great evening!
