The Cattle Egret photographed below was taken at 1/8000 sec. at an ISO 3200 because the bird was flying very close and fast, Aperture Priority, center weighted, group auto focus, continuous auto focus, D850, Nikkor 500mm f5.6 E PF ED VR. This is a male and he is in full mating colors.


Beautiful shot Bill.

It's only a month old. I would send it back for a replacement instead of a repair. Who knows what else might be wrong with that camera.

If I were restricted to just one lens on my A6000's, this is the lens I would choose. I read a lot of reviews before purchasing it and I haven't been disappointed one bit.

Seeking guidance: using 10yr old Tamron 18-270 f3.5 on a D3200, but shots are not sharp enough for me.


I have the same lens (PZD Model) on a D3300 and the sharpness is excellent. It's been through a photo safari in Africa and it did a great job. I would examine your technique before blaming the lens. Just shooting some shots with the camera mounted on a tripod on a calm day is a simple way to check sharpness. If the lens is still fuzzy, you may need a trip back to Tamron.

I used this lens on a month long trip in Europe last Fall with no apparent problems. Caveat, I shot primarily on auto mode.


What camera were you using the lens on?

If it were mine, I would send it in to be repaired and refurbished. There may be internal damage from the impact that is not apparent to the naked eye. With that visible damage the value of the lens has plummeted. Having it repaired and refurbished would restore it's value. The 24-70 is an excellent lens, and well worth repairing.

That’s not hyperbole — just physics. The inverse/square law applies to light, sound, and the entire electromagnetic spectrum: 1/D^2 where D = distance. Sound dissipates as the inverse of the square of the distance. At ten feet, you have 1% of the desired sound you have at one foot from the source. And you also have 100 times as much background noise in the signal, relative to the sound you want... once you turn up the volume (gain) to compensate.


Thank you for clearing that up. Everything makes sense now.

I'd recommend using nothing more than a puff of air from a bulb blower. I never clean mine with anything more than that. If it works, great. If that doesn't dislodge the speck, leave it for now.



Bingo!! There's the best reply of the morning. Three thumbs up.

Congratulations. You won't regret it. My daughter-in-law took that lens on her Nikon D5500 to Africa on a 2-week photo safari and returned with hundreds of beautiful photos. The quality and sharpness of the exposures was just remarkable for a relatively inexpensive zoom lens.

Mine has a lock button that solves the creep problem.


The lock button only works at 18 mm. If you zoom out (lock button off) it is no help.

I have the same lens on my Nikon and love it. Super sharp and a super bargain at that price. The only comment I might have is mine has a bit of "lens creep" when held with lens pointing downward. Easily fixed in 3 seconds with a "lens band" from Amazon for around 5 bucks....or just use a heavy rubber band if necessary. Some owners have the lens creep, others do not have it. In any case, it's an excellent lens and well-worth the price.

Can you post some photos of the cameras and accessories and set a price on them?

Not regular contacts, they re-shape your cornea.


No thanks. I have no desire or need to have my corneas re-shaped.
