Thanks...I managed to update my Adobe Camera Raw first to version 9 before it could open any raw, or tiff, or even PSD file..at least files generated by my Nikon D7200 raw files. I have to select Open As and to select the file, either raw, tiff, or psd, and select Camera Raw. Only then...the file could be opened in the Camera Raw. Is cool I could open my PSD file under Camer Raw. So, I could leave the defringing process last in my work flow....

Ooh, hadn't thought about opening PSD files in Camera Raw. That might come in handy one day. Saves having to save another tiff.

I spent much of the late afternoon polishing my car's headlight cover. They were all oxidized and foggy. Not anymore. The CA was dealt with in CC Camera Raw. The CA was largely confined to the OOF area though.

For 'normal' bokeh I don't think this lens is bad, definitely better IMO than the 50 1.4. However, it's not the prettiest for bokeh balls. I could have smoothed them out a bit, but.... yea that's quite onion-y.

Just got one of these over the weekend. Overall, I really dig it. It's useably sharp wide open, and really sharpens up nice around f/2.5. It's definitely got vignetting until about f/3.5 or f/4, but it's easily controlled in PS or Lightroom via the lens profile correction.

Frankly I think the focusing is accurate but a little pokey. But it has a super-nice feel to it. High-speed AF isn't something I generally care about, so I'm good.

As others have noted, the weakest point of this lens is the chromatic aberration. It's not *bad* but there's more than I had hoped. It's most prominent wide open and reduces as you stop down until about f/5.6.

The VR (IS) is pretty darn good. It's quiet and effective.

Here is a shot at f/1.8 1/640 @ ISO 100 on a Canon 6D. And also a 100% crop of the same shot. No corrections except very slight sharpening from RAW to JPEG. I typically strip EXIF on export, sorry.

Going to try to get this thread going again, because this lens blows my old Canon 50 1.4 out of the water.

A few that I had handy that I put on IG this morning:

Full frame and 100% crop from a mountain stream that started to thaw out this weekend. Mostly just found this abstractly aesthetically pleasing, then realized how bloody sharp it came out...

Well, the Tamron 45mm is the latest unpopular lens that I've added to my kit! Looking forward to start sharing photos asap!

I put this lens to a lot more use than my lack of posting would suggest... oops.
