I was quite surprised to learn that my image won the grand prize of a Tamron AF18-270mm F/3.5 - 6.3 Di IIVC PZD, choice of one Backyard Shots guide, Tamron eco-friendly bag and lens cloth. I didn’t expect it at all.
Once the lens got here, I immediately put it on my camera and went to my backyard to test it out. I am in love with this lens!
I started out with the rain and bubbles forming on my shed’s roof. In the past, I have used my kit 18-55 lens or my 55-200 lens. Having to switch between the two of them to get the shots I wanted was a huge pain. When I used the new Tamron lens, I was super impressed! I was able to get much closer to the bubbles and didn’t have to worry about changing lens, in case the bubbles moved closer to me!
I have led a photowalk in the downtown Historico Barrio district of Tucson, Arizona with this lens. It was perfect! I tried out a variety of focal ranges to see what I could and to keep myself more out of the street than I was before.
I have even tried this lens with landscape and storm chasing photography. I have been very happy with the sharpness and clarity.
I am super happy with this lens! It is great to have one all around lens that I can use in a variety of settings. Since I lead, and go on, quite a few photowalks around Tucson and Phoenix, it is perfect to bring along for everything from macros to street portraits to the skyscapes.

Thank you, Backyard Shots and Tamron for such a great lens to win!
