I’ve just bought a brand-spanking new Tamron 500mm (extra-zoom) lens. It cost a fortune and I’d be lying if I said I don’t feel somewhat guilty abouth the splash, but this is something I’ve wanted for quite a while. My whole reason of getting into photography really is for capturing wildlife and animal behaviour. This lens will hopefully give me that oppurtunity (he justifies). Until I get to some “proper” wildlife though, it will have to be the British garden variety!
