|Hi to everyone!
I was going to post in the Life on Forum thread but thought maybe best to open a new thread than bump up an old one.
I recently put my Tamron 60-300 on my digital body and was quite surprised how well it performed.
It made me start searching information around the net for the 60-300 and my other Tamron lenses.
This site was a brilliant resource! From what I read, appears the site maybe is no longer maintained and I do hope it survives for sometime yet.
The information here is invaluable and just wanted to say a thanks to all.
To add something of interest besides a thanks, thought I might include the lenses I have.
I photographed the boxes, simply easier than pulling all the lenses out.
These were all purchased new. I've kept everything as new. The lenses are all in perfect (as new) condition.
I was even surprised with the 90mm macro box. It's pictured here and did also contain the boxes the lens and extension tube typically come in. (Not pictured themselves)
The box is more a store presentation box. It has cardboard bits you can fold and put together and a cardboard stand for the lens to turn it into a store display. This kit also included a Tamron water spray and some colored background cards.
I pictured the water spray, came in it's own box and I still have the background cards as well.
I'm kinda pleased I kept it. I know it's not worth $$$ but it's just good to have the 90mm lens all original and complete.
The 300mm came in a soft case. I was surprised to notice others photos showed a hard case.
It's great to see the old manual lenses alive and being used! I contemplated selling all my Tamrons at one stage. I would be kicking myself today if I did it!
