Hey guys,

I got my new zoom lens Friday (Tamron AF70-300mm F/4-5.6 LD Macro 1:2)

It's not a bad lens for the price (ú111 from warehouseexpress.com) - I'm only just starting out with my 450D so I didn't want to spend loads on a Canon lens just yet.

Anyways, here's a few pics I have taken with it:









Cheers,

Chris

Nice job, Mr. Chris! Did you manually focus, or use autofocus?
