Hi Moose...I have the older Tamron 18-200mm lens that I purchased with my Canon 20D some years back. I have taken many great pics with that lens but wanted something better. Do you think this new 18-270mm lens is much better?
I shot some photos for a friend last week showing his garage and corvettes and used the Canon 18-135mm lens that came with the 60D and was not very happy with the results. I've been experimenting with manual modes such as Aperture Priority and didn't get too many really tack sharp shots with this lens or maybe it was me.
I seem to have much better results with the Tamron lens. Also, just how much sharper are pics with a real expensive lens versus say the new Tamron lens. Is it really so much more noticable?
I know I'm moving around here, but I want to be a better photographer. I do not want to shoot with any of the auto modes. What do you think about "Program" mode? I've read a lot of stuff and have become better. Unfortunately I don't have the dough to buy the best gear, but I loved the 20d and love my 60d even better. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I enjoy all of your tips and will continue to learn. Thanks, Mike.
