Back in business
i have a macro lens again.. yay. I got an insurance payout for my other one, but the 'repair' cost was only a little bit less than a new Canon 100mm macro. Hard to believe I could buy that one for less than my original Tamron lens, but there you go!
This lens is nice.. I can't believe how big and heavy it is.. it's a tank! The focusing feels less laboured because it's pretty much silent, but other than that I can't really notice too much difference. Image quality looks equal to me. I'm just glad to be able to take macro photos again.. I should be able to squeeze a few in before winter arrives and everything dies, and the sun all but disappears ;)
