Tamron AF 28-200 F3.8-5.6 Aspherical zoom lens


Radcliffe Camera

I found a new lens (the Tamron AF 28-200 F3.8-5.6 Aspherical) in a recent camera sale at Oxfam, together with a close-up adaptor lens designed for it (for subjects in the range 1 – 2 m).

The top picture was taken using the close-up adaptor (1/250 s A| f/5.6 | 140 mm) and the bottom without (1/200 s | f/11 | 28 mm).

I’m pretty sure the lens is this one listed at (it has the Tamron name raised as a grip on the lens barrel) and I’d rate it higher than the current average of 3.15 overall. However, I do need to take some comparative pictures on different zooms to see how it really stands up.
