I received this lens yesterday and a new tripod from SRS, excellent service and price! Spoke to chris, lovely man;o)
I took this in macro mode/setting, seems very sharp (to me), also a small aeroplane was flying over whilst I was out (bl**dy cold, but sunny) and I managed to get a shot of it. They're not brilliant shots I know, but I was impressed with the range of the lens.
All comments greatly accepted

Edit, forgot to mention that they are as taken, just reduced for this forum.

For such a cheap lens the Tamron never fails to impress with its competence - I especially like the nail shot.

Careful though, macro photography can become very addictive!

That shot of the nail is great, I really like looking at it.

I also very recently bought the 70-300 & find it impressive for the price (paid 69) - it's certainly sharp & capable of producing nice shots, mine does suffer the noted Purple Fringing though - relatively easy to remove in PP
