This year i’ve struggled to find a lens i’m happy with around the 28-70mm range. I originally had the old Canon 28-70 2.8 which i absolutely loved. It was built like a tank and took beautiful images, that is until it was stolen. I hope someone is still making great images with it today! Last year to replace that lens i went for the Canon 24-105 f4 and never really fell in love with it. Some people swear by the lens but for me something never really gelled with it and i was looking to sell it on. The big question was always for what.

During the springtime i worked alongside ski photographer Eric Seo who introduced me to the Tamron 28-75 f2.8. I’ll be the first to admit that i’m a sceptic when it comes to cheaper third party lenses but i did some research, read some reviews and decided to take the hit and invest in this lens. The joy of it is that i managed to sell my Canon 24-105 which not only paid for the new Tamron equivalent but also my trip to Switzerland, where i am now. A new lens and a countryside break from the sale of lens i never really liked – perfect.

I’m not going to get over geeky with this but feel free to check out some images taken with it from a walk around Geneva yesterday.
