Tamron 20-40mm F2.8 Di III VXD A062
I took this lens to Nepal and Bhutan for a few months in late 2023. If you're interested in more than just tech specs, and what it's like to work with this lens for an extended time then you've come to the right place.



The Photography Blog






My detailed thoughts on the Tamron 20-40mm F2.8 are covered in a blog post where I travelled with both this lens, and the Tamron 35-150mm F2-2.8. I created this page to make it easier for people and search engines to find my detailed post that doesn't have such a specific title!

This was a great lens and easily one I can recommend to photographers. Very sharp. Very good AF performance. Very compact form factor and delivers professional results.

Full details here in my November 2023 Tamron zoom-lens feature:

Very selected features on the hardware, software and extra wares that help me get the job done.

Sigma 14mm F1.4 Field Review

This is my new favourite lens for the Arctic. It’s not just for stars, and not just auroras. It’s also a creative lens choice when you want to do something a little bit different with landscape photography.



S-E100 F2.8 Macro for L-Mount

The S-E100 F2.8 Macro lens for L-Mount has just been released by LUMIX, and it’s very different to anything I’ve used on a mirrorless system before. It’s a super compact lens for super small subjects, but delivers super-sized performance and in particular the Autofocus is on a whole other level.



Leica Summicron-SL 50mm f/2 ASPH

Another great fast 50mm prime for the L-mount, this time with a seriously impressive build quality that we have come to expect from Leica.



Custom Settings for the LUMIX G9II

I've prepared an outline of my custom setup for the LUMIX G9II, plus a copy of my settings ready to download to your camera and customise for your own needs. A great way to get started and try some of the various features built into this amazing little MFT body.



SD Cards Explained

Shopping for an SD card is frustratingly hard, with so many brands, standards and price points to navigate through. Especially when speed is a necessity rather than a luxury. It's also possible that the best value SD card is a MicroSD card, if you have the right adaptor.



The Worlds Worst Menu System

I'm astounded that Sony have released a camera that is so darned good, yet crippled by a user interface so completely awful. The ZV-E1 is hard enough for a seasoned professional to tame, but a potential road block to be avoided for anyone just starting their journey into photography.
