Just bought the Tamron SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD Telephoto Zoom Lens. Great rebate on it right now. I told my wife about it and that we could not really afford it right now but she insisted that we could and that it was to good a deal to pass up.
Will be here on Saturday.
Left my power supply in a hotel after a business trip. Slept sitting up fo two days. No fun.
I got mine this week and am useing it on my D7200. Amazing lens, but I am just learning to use it too.View attachment 203432
Retired my Tammy 200-400 and Nikon Corp. get's my tax refund this year in exchange for this 200-500 F5.6.
Just learning to shoot with it - twice the lens of my old Tammy (and 5 times the price).
Even the filter came in at $200 (I got the Nikon one - which turned out the be the lowest priced one in these parts).
Had an old hard body case (in the background in the image) that holds it just ticky boo - can even put the lens with camera attached to it.
I didn't get the T.C. - yet. Anyone shooting this lens with a D610? I've looked and for a few hundred more than the TC I can get a refurbished 7100 which is probably a better option to go to 750 vs the 1.4 TC and I keep the 5.6 speed. And get another body to play with.
Still learning to use this lens - took it for a walk about the neighbourhood today and accidentally got a BIF -when shooting the only birds I saw - some sparrows in their bird-condo. This shot is cropped a lot.

I bought a refurbished D5300 from Adorama with the kit lens for $449. I thought it was a pretty good price. It only has a little over 200 actuations on it, and is very clean.
I know the GPS is not supposed to be accurate, but I'll see.
Already done! Ha! ( )
Very nice setup right thereWell... I had a bitter sweet day. On my 366 post are the last pictures of my bike. but here is what I bought with some of the profits. Pictures will follow. I am exhausted. Have to rest...
Only the two gold boxes... I did not bother to stage the shot... I went to Lexington, about 1 hour away to buy the stuff today, and tried them out. I am very excited about both. Pictures will come, but I need to rest...
