My New Tamron Lens!

Just now after work… at about 630pm… was driving in the rain… so heavy I could barely see the car in front of me.

Sky was dark… clouds were scary.. I so wanted to be at home…. but I stayed on the road….

I stayed on and forced myself through the vehicles honking one another as if there was a group argument.

I was surprised to see the SMART tunnel open….. usually they will close it during rainy days…

I drove in with the hope of reaching my destination earlier… but all hope was gone when I saw the line of cars queuing towards the opening of the tunnel.

I was stuck there again on the road… but this time without the rain.

All these barriers didn’t stop me an inch from my new toy.

I finally made it to the mall, parked my car and approached the camera shop.

SUCCESS! I finally purchased the lens! The Tamron 17-50mm f2.8 for Sony Alpha. Woot!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here’s a test shot using the new lens. Not bad. Very sharp.

Now that I have the Tamron, I dont need my Minolta anymore.

I’m selling it at a very low price. Any Alpha users interested? Please email me at smashpop [at] gmail [dot] com

    The Tamron is indeed a very sharp piece of glass. Many DSLRers I know have this lens if not a 17-40 f4L. Sigh, makes me also to buy liao. LOL!
