Thursday at one of the camera clubs, we had a Tamron rep, with goodies. I got to play with several lenses, two of which I was happy they were available. But, this is there super wide, compared to Nikon's 14-24, ($1,900); Tamron 15-30/2.8 ($1,200). I never thought about getting something like this. I'm quite happy with the 16-30/F4. But, what a toy! Here is a sample, 2 inches away from the subject, one at F8 and the other at wide open, auto ISO. Impressive. Reduced for posting, no post except to brighten the shadows to see details. LR distortion correction.

Thanks, Dennis.

Dennis, I have the Nikon 14-24, but both Herman and I use a Tammy 24-70/f2.8.  I like mine, and I think that Herman likes his.  

 

Both Sigma and Tamron make quality, affordable glass.  Looks like you found another example of this.  :)

Thx Mark. How close can you get a subject to the front of the 14-24?

I did get to try the 24-70/2.8 and the 150-600 G2. Will pst as soon as I can.

Thanks, Dennis.

I wish!


Nikon D-3300 18-55 VRII, 1971 Nikkor 135mm Q-Auto, Tamron 70-300 AF. Not much! But I'm working on mastering what I do have.

Very happy with my Tammy 24-70 f/2.8

 

So much so that I would not have hesitated to purchase the Tammy 15-30 f/2.8 was it not that there is too much overlapping beyond 24mm

By the way, according to the DXO website the Tammy beats the Nikon holy grail 14-24 f/2.8G with overall sharpness!

Yeah..... I would have to think about the 15-30. It overlaps my 16-35. I would have to think about perhaps sell in the Nikon if I go with the Tamron. I was really went to try the 24-70. I was impressed.

Thanks, Dennis.
