    A nice compact zoom from the Tamron adaptall line. Has a clever built in 'constant focus' macro function. It isnt true macro by any means but will let you get much, much closer then most lenses will. Overall it is a solid, all metal lens that doesnt look out of place on most mirrorless cameras. I have a lot of respect for what Tamron accomplished with its adaptall line. You can tell from the designs and faster then usual speeds that this company was really thinking about bringing a useful and mature lens group to the market for the enthusiast photographer. A lot of thinking went into them and a lot of good photos come out. Cant ask for more then that.

    All images below are from the A7/17a combo except for the one of my daughter in the park. That was shot with the NEX 7 and speedbooster combo.
