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!!

NEW TRIPOD

My New Tripod to replace the one that I had before.

The other Tripod that I had used for a long time, broke on me a few weeks ago.  The one leg on it just came apart, I’m guessing from use for a few years.  Tried to make it work, but it just would not hold the camera’s that I have.  So, I decided to order another one.

I looked at a number of them and decided on this one.  It will extend up to 75″ high and has quick disconnects for the camera plate.  Is quite sturdy, but not one of those high priced ones that are out there.  So far, I like it.  I also think that it’s more colorful.  I love red!  It also comes apart and will turn into a Monopod, so I can use both of them when I choose to do so.
