Lens Evaluation

Tamron 150-600mm Lens Evaluation

I have been looking at this lens for over a year now and finally rented one thru LensRental.com for a week to put it thru its paces. So far, all my shooting has been handheld and I have had mixed results, probably because of my newness to it. I have been shooting on auto focus so far (tomorrow is tripod day) and the fine focus has been giving me problems on ariel shots. I need to pay more attention to that or switch to manual and lock at infinity and shoot away.

Anyway, here are some of the better ones from my first full day out with this lens.

Local Wildlife

Went out exploring today, looking to find a few raptors or other interesting critters. I managed to capture a few images from Cherry Creek State ParkRocky Mountain National Arsenal, and Chatfield State Park.

Bald Eagles & More

First visit to CCSP today. I came away with a severe case of lens envy! Nevertheless, I did manage to get a few Balds perched. I am guessing the dark one is an immature bald based on the claws and coloring. Corrections welcome!
