A morning in the city with the Tamron 24-70mm Lens


It has been an interesting week and part of it was getting the Tamron 24-70mm G2 lens on loan to test out. There is going to be a review here of it soon, but for now I am getting out as much as possible to take photos to see what it is like. I had an opportunity to take photos around the city on Friday morning when Emily wanted a One on One which was more about showing her the architecture around Melbourne and how to photograph it.


The Tamron SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD G2

The 24-70mm is my go to lens when it comes to taking most of my photos. It is a great length and for many years I’ve been using the Nikon one, so it was great opportunity to try the Tamron lens.

It is a lot wider than the Nikon one, but unlike mine, this one does have vibration reduction, or VC as Tamron refer to it as. The weight of the lens was a bit of a surprise. Other lenses I’ve used have been light, but this one is heavy which also means good quality.

So far, I have used it for the last four days, yes I’ve been out four times. I am rather exhausted, but it has been really good.

Photographing Melbourne

We have had so many sunny skies in Melbourne lately, which many like, but it has been nice to see a lot more clouds. On Friday morning the sky was overcast and the clouds were great. It was great to see that moody sky back with my images of the city.

Emily and I wandered around all over the place seeing as much of the city as we could. It was a really nice to show someone around my city and some of my favourite spots. We went all over the place. We did cityscapes across the river, the lanes, a few streets and even some foyers that I knew of. It was a great morning and I am really happy with many of the photos that I took. Here are a few of them.

    The Flinders Street Station is such a beautiful building… wow, what a stunning photograph you took of it too.

    1. Thank you Chris, I’ve been really impressed with the lens so far, I keep forgetting that it is the Tamron lens, which I think is fantastic.
