The just released and highly anticipated (by many photographers) Tamron 100-400mm has finally arrived! I've had my eye on this lens since it was announced back in the summer and am eager to see what I can do with it.
It will pair perfectly on my second camera when shooting outdoor shows giving me 600mm of reach which will now give me the ability to get more close up shots when working these large arenas. It will also serve as a nice lighter alternative to my 200-500 (which weighs a whopping 5.3lbs) for shooting wild horses. You can never have too much reach but you can easily have not enough.
Goodbye to my 1 year old Nikon 70-300 AF-P, I shot my first two shows (Gymkhana and barrel racing) back in July with this lens and some of my best work has come from this lens but there were times where it fell a bit short. Here are some of my photos from the 70-300.
Now onto bigger and better things. :)
