New Lens/winter On The Mulberry

Recommended Posts

Finally got to take out the new lens I picked up at Christmas—a Tamron 70-300mm f4-5.6 with vibration control (aka image stabilization). Picked the Tamron over the equivalent Canon or Sigma because on both of those the front element rotates when you focus, so you can't really use a polarizer.

So far, I'd say it's quite a lens for the money--a little under $400. Everything here was shot handheld from a solo boat on the Mulberry--less than ideal conditions for sharp images, so the image stabilization seems to make a big difference.

Floated from Big Eddy to Campbells with an Arkansas Canoe Club group including Bobber from this board, and it was a blast. Good weather, good people, and a gorgeous river. Didn't even bring a fishing rod, though.
