This past Friday I was able to add a new lens to my arsenal that's going to allow me to photography some things I have never really been able to before. Mainly that's some of our great Pacific Northwest wildlife. So let me introduce you to the newest addition to the camera bag, the Tamron SP150-600mm F5-6.3 Di VC USD.
It's big and it's heavy and it dwarfs everything else I have currently but it focuses super quiet and just as quick if not faster than some of my current lenses. It will also force me to use a tripod more than I do currently as hand holding this beast is not something I really want to try, ok I did try but I'm just to twitchy to hold it steady enough. I look forward to boring you all with photos of Eagles, sea birds and elk in the future but I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I do taking them.
This morning I was able to get out for a bit and take a few test photos to get a better feel for the zoom range. Sadly no wildlife as the Sea Lions were absent of at least I couldn't find them but I did get a photo of everyone's favorite seabird, the seagull. Luckily with the mild temps and bright sunny skies, the surfers were out in full force. Enjoy the photos everyone.
