Omotesando & Aoyama at Night – Testing my new Tamron Lens

I just bought new lens for my camera and it is called Tamron SP AF-17-50mm F/2.8 XR. According to its website this lens is

“With its wide F/2.8 constant aperture, this superb high-speed wide-angle-to-medium-telephoto (26-78mm equivalent) zoom lets you create natural-looking pictures in almost any light, and shoot at faster shutter speeds too. One of the most compact and lightweight lenses in its class, its shallow depth of field at wide apertures allows you to create dramatic pictorial and portrait effects by softening background details so the subject looks more vibrant and three-dimensional.”

I really wanted a lens that can absorb a lot of light since I carry my camera with me all the time. I still want it to be not so heavy as well. So the best choice was this lens to go with my Canon X7, the lightest and smallest DSLR in the market right now. The only bad thing about this lens is that it doesn’t have a stabiliser so you have to be quite still when taking photos and you can take moving objects as well. There is a lens option with the stabiliser too but it is heavier than the one I just bought.

To test this lens out I decided to take some pictures at night in Omotesando and Aoyama. I really love the results of it so far. I usually don’t post pictures during the night time on my blog because I haven’t been happy with the results so far but night pictures with this lens is just divine.

So from now on, I think that my pictures should improve tremendously with this new lens.
