In difficult locations, photographers sometimes need an all-purpose zoom lens. In this free video, world renowned outdoor photographer Ian Plant takes you to the Vanuatu volcano and shows you the features of the flexible 28mm-300mm Tamron lens. On the volcano rim, Ian goes wide at 28mm to capture the lava exploding over the landscape and into the sky. He also goes tight at 300mm to capture only the sparking trails of burning lava. The Tamron 28mm-300mm features vibration compensation, which allows Ian to shoot handheld even in the low light of the volcano. When you need to travel light, the versatile Tamron 28mm-300mm lens is ideal.

    DPreview was not very complementary on this lens (only 7 reviews) and the main issue was image quality at 300 mm and lots of CA (?) at 300 mm. The Photoblogger (www.thephoblographer.com/2014/10/31/review-tamron-28-300mm-f3-5-5-6-di-vc-pzd-canon-ef/) seems to like it a considerably more but they mention Bokeh which is a new term to me. I was a little surprise in the lower than expected price for a Tamron lens. A little clarification would be appreciated. Thank you.
