Agree. It's a good way for guys like me to learn as well. Lately, it seems like there are a lot of members that are starting to get in to photography in this thread and it would be good advice for them as well. Haven't seen the old guys post in awhile i.e. mohawk mike, panda jerk cmack and them

this is everywhere. most noobs are (trying to be)gearwhores. I went through that stage. now, to be a gearwhore, I feel like if I plop down $1k on photo stuff, I feel like it isn't enough.

Thats the only lense I have. I have been happy with it. Someone earlier in this thread was talking a bunch of crap about it. I think its a good all around lense for someone(me) who wants to learn, but doesnt have a ton of coin to drop on a few different lenses. I do want to get something that reaches out there to get more wildlife shots. I am not near sneaky enough to get close.

Good to know! I think it'll work we'll for my needs for a while. I really would like a super wide angle though. I love wide shots. But might just get a gopro haha

I have a 200mm fd lens..so after the 1.6x due to camera and the 1.25x due to adapter..it's a 400mm haha but all manual focus and might not be super sharp..just have to play with it and see. Also have a 500mm reflector one. My dad said it's not super good tho.

My point was that most buy stuff they dont have, and dont quite work with what they have. Its kind of a perpetual cycle of buying stuff just to have but not use to its full potential or make do with it. In this scenario, having too much would not ne favorable since the mentality is to always get more gear, and necessarily make do with ehat they have, and then invest in something more worthwhile.

Oh totally agree. Need to master what you ha e first before getting the good stuff. If you can work with basic stuff and get great results then your not going to get amazing results with lots of amazing gear.

What do you guys think of Tamron lenses?

The only (non Canon/Nikon) lens I ever used was this beast http://www.sigmaphoto.com/product/50...-apo-dg-os-hsm

I've been thinking of replacing the Canon 18-135 kit lens that came with my Rebel with this Tamron http://www.tamron-usa.com/lenses/pro...asp#ad-image-0

I played with it in the store for about 30 minutes, and it seemed OK, but all of my evaluation was through the LCD on the back of the camera, and most of the testing was sharpness and low light focus speed.

That would give me a very general all purpose lens and then I could worry about special situations for my other gear whoring.

That looks like a great lense. If I had found it before I bought my 18-135 I probably would have bought it. I dont think it was out then though.

My MIL has one similar to it. It is the 28-300. It is a pretty compact and decent all around lens. I wouldn't say it is great, but it will certainly get the job done. She really likes it.
