The Tamron 70-300mm macro lens

May 19, 2017


I've had this lens in my bag for years but rarely use it, I've always thought of it as a "one-day" lens (I'll find a use for it one day). To give it it's full title, the lens I'm talking about is the
Tamron AF 70-300mm F4/5.6 Di LD Macro 1:2
priced at around £80 and it's a fantastic lens!


At 300mm the lens is sharp enough for

squirrel whiskers and gives beautiful bokeh.

Handheld 300mm f5.6 1/640



The auto focus is fast, accurate and performs well

with fast moving subjects, 

particularly helpful for sports & wildlife.

It's a lightweight, quiet, comfortable lens and allows

you to get to those finer details like the individual

feathers of down and the pupil of a gosling.

A versatile lens at that delivers great results at every focal length,

the Macro function doesn't disappoint either.

 All in all a versatile, comfortable, quick, quiet, lightweight lens. Perfect for anyone looking to expand their lens reach and experiment with macro and/or wildlife. Widely available for around £80-£100 and definitely a lens I'd recommend to anyone getting into photography.
