As outdoor photographers, we are always on a quest to find the best lenses that fit our needs and vision for our photography. My goal has always been high quality paired with smaller size and lighter weight. The Tamron 70-300 f/4.5-6.3 promised to check every one of those boxes, so I was excited to try it. I tested this lens over several months in a multitude of different scenarios, pushing the lens to its limits. A lot of lenses promise on size and weight, but I was a little skeptical about the quality. However, the first photo I shot blew me away.
