- Deal: Reikan FoCal Pro Lens Calibration – $89.99 (reg. $134.88, today only)
Many people have experienced backorders in countries around the world, and this lens has become a top seller already. If you are interested, I would suggest ordering sooner rather than later, as most people are experiencing a several week wait before receiving their lens. If you will look at the end of the article before the comments , you will find some different ways to order and even some discounts.
Thanks, as always, for reading.
I pay very close attention to news in the camera industry. I also interact with a lot of different photographers around the world via the Internet. People, being, well, people, react to news in a variety of ways. Some photographers were thrilled and excited. That 4x zoom range covers a host of useful focal lengths. But then there are the pragmatists.
They dismissed the lens before any photos were shown and one word of review text was written. They have primarily been considered budget options, with lower end build and handling along with merely acceptable optical quality.amsderbierichap.ml/ordinary-things.php

The announcement of the amazing price brought similar reactions. Many people were thrilled. Photographers are used to sticker shock, and no segment has more sticker shock than the telephoto range, where long glass can tip into the 6 figure range. The truth of the matter is that none of us knew whether Tamron had a hit or not; we just knew that Tamron was swinging for the fences with this one.
Many of us hoped that due to the very positive trend in recent Tamron offerings that maybe, just maybe, Tamron had a game-changer. After shooting more than a thousand frames with this lens, I believe that I can safely say that Tamron does in fact have a game-changer on its hands. This lens defies all expectations including my own. It is an excellent telephoto zoom lens that reaches a focal length longer than what most people currently own at a price that they can probably afford. That makes it fairly unique. I am very privileged to get to share one of the very first thorough reviews on a lens that has convinced me.
My test will be conducted on a Canon full frame sensor camera. Those of you that are shooting crop sensor bodies can expect a field of view similar to mm WOW! Understand that apparent sharpness will seem higher on a full frame body but optical imperfections tend to be diminished on crop sensor bodies. Depth of field is also smaller at comparative apertures on a full frame sensor.
This is not a small lens. No lens that reaches mm is. But after having lugged it around the woods for a while, I believe that Tamron has struck an excellent balance between size, weight, and optics. Any zoom lens is a delicate balance of compromises. A prime lens can be built and optimized for one focal length, but a zoom has to cover any number of eventualities.
A lot of superzoom compacts cover this focal length and beyond , but they emphasize compact size over optical quality, and as a result are simply not even under consideration by most discerning photographers. That is 4. The front element is large and takes a 95mm standard filter which will set you back a bit! It is not particularly short, either. At its most compact, retracted , the lens is about So at its maximum length with the hood attached, this is a nearly foot-and-a-half long lens.
It should be noted that the lens is both lighter and shorter than most of the longer length prime lenses. On a very positive note, while the inner barrel does extend during zooming, it does so smoothly and without any hint of wobble. All of this news so far is either good or bad depending on what end of the priority list you fall on.
If you were looking for compact, you might be disappointed. If you were looking for quality optics, then this is very good news. There is a practical limit to how compact a lens can be and still be optically superior. It is dense without being unnecessarily heavy. The lens construction is both handsome and of good quality. The barrel has a nice texture to it, and the focus and zoom rings are made of nicely ribbed rubber. Roger Cicala has recently debunked some of the marketing myths regarding lens construction from the unique perspective of someone who has actually broken down scores of lenses.
This is always a welcome sign, as it means that the company is doing its best to go the extra mile in building a quality lens. I have used it in very difficult weather conditions extreme cold, snow, and rain without a hint of complaint from the lens. The lens also has a metal bayonet mount in Canon [tested here], Nikon, and Sony mounts and a removable tripod collar. One notable departure from previous Tamron lenses is that a very elegant brushed aluminum ring replaces the gold ring.
I personally like the change. It is more subtle from a distance but much more elegant close up. This is the first Tamron lens I have seen that sports this new cosmetic touch. It is constructed of the typical modern mix of high strength engineered plastics and metal, and, frankly, it feels just like all the other quality lenses that I have purchased in recent years. While I am only evaluating the lens from outside, I personally feel confident that the lens should hold up well and survive the inevitable bumps that a lens this size will endure.
That certainly helps with peace of mind! The lens features three switches on the left hand of the barrel. Using this while shooting distant wildlife will help AF speed. On top right of the barrel is a zoom lock. When carried like I often do in a strap or harness, the lens will exhibit zoom creep, so this is an important and necessary inclusion.

There is a distance marker window and the aforementioned tripod collar. Tamron collars are well designed and highly functional. It is very handy to use this with a monopod. When kept loose it allows for very easy rotation of the camera to change aspect. The zoom ring has markers for , , , , , , , , and mm.

The focus ring is the closest to the camera body not my favorite trend, but it is definitely a trend in recent lenses. I did notice a bit more resistance in extreme cold C and beyond , but that is hardly unusual. Zoom rotation direction will per usual be the same as Nikon and opposite from Canon. I should also point out that the lens has an excellent minimum focus distance of 2.
That degree of magnification is very handy, and it interesting to shoot a near macro type shot from almost nine feet away! Most importantly, however, it means that framing and filling the frame with small animals squirrels and birds is very achievable. Before I write this section I want to give a disclaimer.
I have virtually no experience with high end super-tele primes. I own many very fast focusing lenses, but the closest lens I personally own to this lens is the very excellent Canon L. This was an area that I was prepared to be disappointed in. But this type of lens is a whole new challenge. The glass elements 20 elements in 13 groups are big and heavy in a lens like this. One of the biggest concerns amongst potentially interested photographers was focus speed and accuracy.
But over my time spent with the lens I have been very pleased in that regard. My Canon L has fabulous focusing. It is extremely fast. In a non scientific comparison I shot the two lenses side by side comparing focus speed going from one extreme to the other. The Canon is almost instantaneous in those situations. The Tamron? Reading from the reviews it sounds like a really good calibration tool for lens. I just have a few questions. For the folks who purchase this software. Was it worth the money?
Is this software more consistent then other lens calibration tools? Which version did you buy? Is this a download program or do they have to ship it from Europe? I'm aware of Michael Tape's LensAlign, and a few other ones on the market. Even though those are great I still have to adjust the MA manually vs. Reikan focal, which is fully auto adjusted through the software. There wasn't too much reviews on here so I figure I asked. Yes 2. It's more that it's easier to deal with than anything. Push button, let it do it's thing. If you want to see if it's reliable, you just push button again 3.
