Telephoto lens test

My new camera also came with a Tamron aspherical 18-200mm f3.5-f6.3 lens. So today I took it for a little test drive. I couldn't do much because we're having a howling wind storm with rain coming down buckets, but between downpours I went out on the porch for a quick test.

At 18mm


I think I see a bit of vignetting on the corners, but that might be from the UV filter on the front. I'll try another test without that next time.

at 200mm - the RR crossing down at the road


also at 200mm, Barclay in the yard


I'm impressed. This will be nice at the wildlife refuge. I can't wait to go try it out. Of course you're never close enough when you're trying to photograph birds!

Back in the office I got a quick shot of Navi next to my desk. What a doll :)

Wish I could get such clear , crisp shots. Are the they all straight out of the camera, no retouching ?
