    Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 Thread

    Javier started a nice thread for one of my favorite lenses, the Sigma 10-20mm. I thought I'd start a similar thread for the Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 I haven't had this lens very long, but I'm becoming more and more impressed with it.

    Everyone please feel welcome to post examples from this lens!

    I have a friend that cleans up pitted and faded headlights. Check out these before and after pics!









    This one has a little adjustment ;)

    Jim, Great Idea.
    I do not have anything recent, but will take out my Tammy today and the rest of this week.

    Just Pentax?

    Did you want this to be a Pentax-only thread? Because lots of us have this lens. But lots of us have it in mounts other than Pentax. I'd like to move the thread to ViewFinder and open it up. But only with your permission.

    John, Actually, I'm glad you brought this up, because I'd been thinking about this. I'd love to start a project on here where we have different threads for different favorite pieces of equipment. Examples would be lenses, incl. the lenses that have already been started, "Pentax" cameras (since this is the pentax forum, but the other forums could do something for their readers), etc.

    As for "lenses", since many crossover, I'd love to host the threads on the Pentax forum, for all the crossover lenses.

    Any suggestions you may have would be great.

    I'll be writing up a sticky shortly for our Pentax gear.
    Ken

    Re: Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 Thread

    I pulled out my Tamron 28-75 F/2.8 this morning and shot a few flowers on my way to work. It was a nice cloudy morning so I had good light. I was using my sons K100D Super for these since it was handy...
    No time for cropping or PP just resizing...












    Gosh, I had forgotten what a truly wonderful lens this is.

    Yes yes I have a version of this lens too, but not for Pentax. Is this thread still Pentax only?

    Yes, Canuck, please feel free to post. It's always nice to compare and contrast different equipment.

    Great b&w's, Javier. It's amazing how fast the focus falls of when it's at 2.8!

    I made sure to point out it was at F/2.8 because context is even important in photography. F/2.8 works great for low light portraits, head shots, flowers where much bokeh is required etc...

    Hooray!!

    My 28-75 f/2.8 went climbing with me recently. Here's one of my buddy Jon, 1/800 @ f/4 with fill flash at 28mm.

    Hi, thanks for the comments. I'd say we were really high but this was really only about 8 feet off the ground. I stood on a rock right next to the climb and also shot close to my subject. This allowed me to shoot out towards the distant landscape to give an illusion of height. Sometimes you just gotta fake it haha. :aureola:

    I see some nice stuff but do wish the thread would get moved so other people with other than Pentax would see it.
    I wouldn't have looked except the title said Tamron so was interested to see what the lens does..
    Keep Shooting!
