Heya,

Some VC tests in the dark woods again, this time, another nasty cotton mouth snake.

Great catch Peter. Here in the UK, Bitterns are rarely spotted and everyone wants to get a shot of one.

rehype, very nice shot and a cute bird.

@Hask: these are great. Never mind shutter speed. I am impressed by the quality of your shots considering the ISO.

Thanks

+1 Hask impressive and awesome perspective. The park that I always go to I have to stay in the boardwalk I have to point down to the subject.

I'm going to look at this lens tomorrow and even though I will get a brief play with it in the shop, I worry about hand holding it. I use a 7D and at the far end of this lens it is nearly 1,000mm equivalent. I shoot mainly fast moving objects such as jet skis and worry that as the lens doesn't' have a panning stabiliser setting, I may struggle to keeps things in frame, or even avoid to much shake and blur. Of course I could avoid the longest end of the lens, but, if it's there, of course I will be drawn in to use it :D

Shutter speed isn't always the best here in the UK either, as it's often overcast when I go out to play. Any users of this lens using crop sensor cameras give me any tips please?

Hi, I live in the UK and use this lens on a crop sensor (60d). I do not have any problems hand holding it or at least I do not suppose I have any more than I would have with any other lens of this reach. I often try to get a shot of a swallow in flight (these are much smaller and go faster then a jet ski I suppose) and it is doable to keep the bird in frame. But regarding the lack of light in the UK, yes, obviously it does help a lot if it's nice and sunny.

Thanks. The weight doesn't worry me, but I want to avoid having to bump the iso up to lift the shutter speed to reduce shake. ......... I know an old woman who swallowed a fly....... :D

I borrowed a 50-500mm Sigma a couple of years ago and found it very difficult to use on a static object (no IS) but I suspect that if I wanted to use the Tamron for anything static, I wold use a tripod if the lens was being used at the far end.

Here are some snowstorm juncos. I named the first bird "Snowflake" :) (too bad there is a huge blurry snowflake in front of the bird)

This reminds me, I need to MFA my lens on my 6D. I have been so excited to just have the lens that I completely forgot to hit is with adjustments to get it tack sharp like the shots directly above this post.

I am getting a bit confused here. For static objects there is always VC (IS) to reduce the shake and for your water sports stuff...well, on a cloudy day you may have to go to lets say ISO 800, 1000 maybe and I think it's still pretty OK for the 7D.

I agree with this, And I have my 7D set to max ISO 1600.

The Sigma I tried didn't have stabilisation and it was a handful on the day I played with it, I realise this will be less of a problem with the Tamron stabiliser (4 stops or there abouts). But at the moment I use my 70-200mm f2.8II with a 1.4TC to shoot waster sports and find the two position stabiliser to be really useful. As far as I can gather the Tamron doesn't have the same facility.

But I'm trying to gauge whether what I lose in the panning stabiliser of the Canon I will make up for in the extra reach of the Tamron and so help me reduce the amount of severe cropping I often use. Kiteboarders being a typical example as they are often so far out to sea.

I am going for a brief play with one tomorrow at my local camera shop, but as I find it takes me a little while to dial myself into getting the best from a lens (well, when I say best from the lens, I mean the best I am capable of getting from it :D ) I guess the main thing I will be able to assess, will be the weight and handling of it.

I hope Calumet is OK in the UK as didn't they fold in the USA?
