My good old faithful Canon 18-200mm lens finally breathed its last breath. It's been dropped one too many times unfortunately, and that's another story! I've been doing my research and finally decided on the new Tamron 16-300mm lens. It will be a good walk-around lens for my Canon 7D. It arrived in the mail yesterday and I quickly took it outside to see what it could do. I wasn't disappointed and I know I'm going to love it. I will give it a good work out this coming weekend in Cairns.
