Yesterday I participated in a testing panel day, organized by the Dutch photography magazine “Focus”.  A group of 12 readers was invited to try out the new, award winning Tamron 16-300 mm F3,5-6,3 DiII VC PZD zoom lens.

16 mm wide angle to 300 mm zoom in one lens… what does that look like?

Well, we went to the Royal Palace “Het Loo” in Apeldoorn, where we could experiment with this awesome lens.

Here is what it looks like:

This red, blue and yellow parrot, the Scarlet Macaw (Ara macao), is native to humid evergreen forests of tropical South America. It has suffered from local extinction through habitat destruction and capture for the parrot trade, but locally it remains fairly common. This colourful parrot is on the IUCN list of threatened species, status: Least concern (source: Wikipedia)
