This past Saturday we hosted a Mirror Lake Photo Walk around Ohio State‘s campus. The weather couldn’t have been any better, and the campus’s beautiful architecture offered plenty of photographic opportunities.
It also gave me an opportunity to take two lenses for a test run: the Tamron 24-70 f/2.8 Di VC USD and Tamron 70-200 f/2.8 USD VC. These two lenses make quite a pair. Their respective focal lengths give you an incredible range, from wide-angle to telephoto, meaning with these two lenses in tow you can basically capture any kind of image you would want in most situations. The Vibration Compensation, especially on the 70-200, allows you to shoot handheld in well- to medium-lit situations, and the constant f/2.8 gives you incredible control over your depth of field. The AF, especially on the 24-70, was lightning fast. Most importantly, they were fun lenses to use, and at no time did I feel constrained by what I could shoot.
Check out some of the images I took with these two awesome lenses.
