I've always been surprised by the love that the Tamron 60-300mm gets, while this lovely 35-210mm goes kind of unnoticed. I think they are similar lenses – I've had both, sold the 60-300 (nothing wrong with it, just preference!) and haven't looked back.

Here's a few shots from the vintage car show today.

1960 Corvette detail at f/5.6, not sure of the focal length, but I guess around 135-150mm:


And a crop of the above:


The same car seen from the front, around 35-45mm, f/5.6:


An MG (not sure of the year) around 85mm, f/4:


1939 Packard Twelve detail at 210mm f/5.6 (slightly blurry, pulse not steady enough):


And a photo of a '62 Ford Thunderbird taken with an AF Sigma 17-35mm f/2.8-4 EX DG, for giggles:


I think that these two lenses (Tamron Adaptall-2 35-210 and Sigma 17-35) make a great walkaround combo.

I refuse to believe that Tamron superzoom isn't just an explosion of chromatic aberration. Got any 100% crops?

Well, it's a zuperzoom, and it's four decades old, so some chromatic aberration is a given. I did remove some from the Packard photo above.
