A funny thing happened to me at the camera store on my way home from work this evening. I stopped in there to pick up the Photo Vision that is so highly endorsed by RFS and other distinguished and noted members of G1 and while I was in the store I heard a voice calling to me and no one else seemed to be hearing it.
The voice was telling me to inquire about the Tamron XR-DI 28-75 MM F2.8 lens which I did (I make it a point never to ignore voices) and the camera store had one and it was a consignment from a guy who had bought the new 24-70 MM F2.8 Canon L lens and the asking price was very tempting. The price was so tempting that not only did I walk out of the camera store with the Photo Vision target, I also had a lens in tow and I can't wait to use it.
I got home and put it on my camera and took some shots in my garden and uploaded them to my computer and they look good with excellent contrast and sharpness but I can't tell much from a flower garden.
The really good news is I have not one but two shoots this weekend so I will have two excellent opportunities to give the lens a real workout and I can assure you, I will be posting images to the Forums so watch out world, here I come. I might just be dangerous so stay tuned to G1 for further updates.
