My last 20s birthday.02:17
Hi peeps.. today is my 29th birthday.. ahh! cant imagine i'm like so close to 30s. My wish for this year is to be a good wifey, and a mommy hehehehe insyallah.. (if happen sure my next year birthday wish will be a super mom!)
As i mentioned in my previous entry, I have bought something for myself as a birthday present :).
I am struggling to buy a decent telephoto zoom lens as well as macro lens but due to budget constraints I am unable to shortlist any.
As much as i would love to buy the Sony G lens, it's a bit over priced for me but after doing research on the internet, i was pretty sure that Tamron AF 70-300mm LD Di Macro is the one i'm looking for. This lens give me the complete range, having a decent zoom and macro capability. Currently this lens is one of the most affordable and versatile lenses in its range.

For the Alpha Mount it offers full frame coverage, a 1:2 macro feature, 9 aperture blades, Limited Dispersion Elements (LD) to control aberrations, elements coated for digital optics . Lucky for alpha, the inside STEADY SHOT (Sony Alpha terms for Image Stabilization (IS) and Vibration Reduction (VR) really helps! i am not sure how this lens perform with Nikon Or Canon as this lens doesn't have VR or IS.
I can conclude this lens provides a good range, decent reach, and surprisingly good performance for the money. I think it's worthy of serious consideration as a first DSLR telephoto lens for someone starting out with a modest budget.
Image sample below were all taken with the Sony A290, and Tamron AF 70-300mm LD Di Macro lens.
Cake????? no cake as hubby is outstation so tak nak la tiup lilin sesorang :p
