NEW LENS!

Tamron-17-50mm-f-2.8-XR-Di-II-Lens

Ah, yes.  Here is something else that I had to purchase a week ago.

This is my new Tamron Lens for my Pentax K10d.  Now, I did have and still do have, a Tamron 28-80mm AF f/2,8 Lens that I have had for a long time.  It was one of my “go to” Lens because it fit most of my photography needs, except getting close ups.  Did not work well doing that.  Last year while out on a photo shoot, I was mounting the lens on my camera to put it on my Tripod, when it slipped out of my wet hand and fell on the ground!  I stood in horror on what I had just done!  Crap!  Not a good thing to do.  I picked it up and cleaned off the dirt.  Better check it to see if anything went wrong.  Camera lens don’t take too kindly to being dropped!

After looking it over, it seem’d to be alright.  Now, ever since that day, when using the Lens I noticed that my Images were not coming out very clear.  Had to think about this and found that the focus on it was not working right.  I’m sure that it was from being dropped that horrid day.  So, I thought about getting another Lens to replace my old one for a few day’s.  I decided on getting a new one.  I like my Images to be as clear as possible.

I’ve used my new Lens a few times now and it works very well.  In fact, the picture I Posted before this, has my new Lens attached to the Pentax.  Note to self.  Don’t drop your Lens’s!!

I am 75 yrs. young and now retired. I worked in the Machinist Trade for 24 yrs. Served in the US Navy with a Tour of Duty in Vietnam. Being retired I do enjoy Photography with my Nikon and Pentax Camera's, snooping around in Historic and Abandoned places, using my Scroll Saw, Reading, Travel, riding a bicycle on the many Trails that are around my area, and what-ever else will interest me at the time. Come with me and see where I go, where I have been, and my Life surviving Retirement.
