    Well I posted my 3 tamron Zooms, hope to add the 200 - 500 this spring or summer. And speaking of things to shoot, basketball is now to the loose and go home till next year stage, so I may be bored for a few weeks. LOL

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.

    Well, there will be snow in the next day or so ... nothing but mud and brownish grass, at the moment. Not too appealing to anything.

    yea snow rain slop mix is supposed to start here on Thursday, I know of 3 covered bridges with in a hour drive of me, but not very appealing in the bleak, maybe do them in black and white? hmmm. Also some old sand stone quarries about 10 miles away wonder what that will be like when things get green? Just got to find motivation / inspiration.

    Red face Roughing it ...

    It's a tough time of year ... because it is just agony to deal with the cold ... and damp, dank weather. When the sun shines ... we all get energized ...

    Here's a HDR MACRO shot I whipped up, last year, for a friend.

    This was BEFORE version 4 A700 firmware. Back when HDR was done manually.

    And then this "Mule Shot."

    f/6.7 - 2 seconds - ISO-100 - M- room lighting



    The last one needed more control of the exposure ... but I was limited to just the one shot, as I had issues with lighting, afterward. It did come out sharp, though.

    I was hoping a few more folks would participate in the poll ... there isn't a lot to go on, here. LOL

    Believe me when I say, there is no charge. We're just trying to get everyone "charted" and pigeon-holed. I mean, I would like to know if something novel comes down from TAMRON for the SONY DSLR and we can get the word out for you.

    Interesting lenses

    I do not see anyone adding anything new lately. The sigma 500mm F2.8, but if you can buy that, adopt me please. I am also not interested in buying anything that is specifically for the dx lenses because should I get lucky enough to buy an fx camera, I want my lenses to be interchangable. Why have to buy two sets of lenses?
