Re: Rare T/A's web page

THANK YOU!

The yellow T/A I've had since 1990. We have spent a lot of time getting it in the shape it is today.

Re: The Animals

In most National parks the wildlife is pretty used to humans. Although you need to still be aware that they are still wild. Those I shot from the car. The bison walked right past my window so close I could of reached out and touched it. The wife was getting nervous.

Re: Tamron 200-400mm

Yes it is a Technics turntable. It sounds great on this system also. I still listen to a lot of vinyl as well as my Reel-Reels. I still have 3 working R-Rs and use them almost everyday. I'm still into 8 tracks also. How many people remember them? As far as the lens I've read that it works best at f8...

Tamron 200-400mm

Hello folks,

I was wondering if anyone has used this Tamron 200-400mm lens? My wife bought me one for Christmas but I have not been able to give it a good workout yet. I have played around with it out the windows of the house. I'm hoping someone can give me some pointers about it.

Thank,
Ken

Re: My photos

I will get some posted as soon as I get some good ones. I'm waiting for spring but the weather just will not cooperate with us.
I also picked up a 1.4 converter to go with the 400mm lens. I'm hoping to get some better shots this year.

Re: My photos

Thanks all for the replies!!! I'm still trying to learn this photography stuff. All my life I've used P&S cameras until I got the a330. Now I also have an a700 and trying to step up my game. There's a lot to learn that's for sure. My interests are wildlife and macro. My wife got me a 100 - 400 T...

Please let me know what you think good or bad. It's the only way I'll learn.

I hope this works out.
