But, (no offense Tam) this new love in my life is the Tamron 17-50mm f2.8 zoom lens for my Sony A57.
I’ve wanted a constant aperture zoom for a while. The A57 kit lens is fine in terms of sharpness but very limited in terms of creative control. Primes, which I love, are great for portrait, but today we went to Aldeburgh, on the east coast. The weather was fabulous and it was the perfect opportunity to try out the new zoom.
I actually took very few portraits. I know nothing about landscape or street photography, but the amazing colour rendition, sharpness ans contrast of this lens had me snapping all sorts of things I personally wouldn’t normally take photos of. I am so impressed that NOT ONE of these pix has been processed in any way. We got home an hour ago, had a quick dinner, and i’m here, putting this post together. I really am that happy with it……and the weather….and the seaside….. of course. 🙂
