I took this digital photograph of an Painted Lady butterfly recently in Chester New Jersey. Click on the picture to download or view the high resolution original. Zoom in to view the sharpness from the new Tamron 18-400mm ultra-telephoto all-in-one lens.
Tamron 18-400mm Macro Sample Image of an Painted Lady Butterfly. Straight Out Of Camera.
The Tamron 18-400mm F/3.5-6.3 DI-II VC HLD all-in-one lens was handheld in conjunction with the Canon SL2 Digital Rebel. I am extremely impressed by the fine detail resolved in this SOOC (straight out of camera) shot. The tiny hairs by the butterfly eyes are very well defined. I also like the pleasing bokeh of background flowers.
