    Sorry for the title
    I bought a Tamron 90mm macro from another Nikonite member but had to send it in to Tamron for an AF motor issue. Great lens BTW.
    Just got it back today, and guess what the first picture I took with it was? geez. I feel like Ken Rockwell now since almost every lens test he does has a closeup of his watch

    KR does not do RAW. That's cheating.

    I didn't shoot it in P either. I'm really failing the KR easy photography 101 course

    I wanted to test the lens out, so it was in a fairly dark room and used a high iso and a little underexposed no flash. Focus was spot on and noise was at a minimum. I am really impressed with this tamron lens. equally impressed with the d750.

    Amazing what a lens bought from a fellow Nikonians can do for an ugly worn out broken down watch
