Tamron SP AF70-300mm Di VC USD – A Lens So Sharp You’ll Need to Wear Gloves

Images and Text by Jon Sienkiewicz

Tamron’s 60th Anniversary 70-300mm zoom is sharp. It’s so sharp that I carry it in a case so that I don’t cut myself. The full name is Tamron SP AF70-300mm F4-5.6 Di VC USD XLD IF (Model A005). I had a chance to use one at the Bronx Zoo and around my neighborhood in early September. Of course, there’s no real danger of injury, but it is one very sharp lens.

I took this picture on Friday September 3rd, 2010, the morning that Hurricane Earl was streaming up the East Coast. It was dawn and we were worried about the possible damage, so I wasn’t in the mood to waste time. I was staggered by the red dawn light and got my camera.
