I still think I got better photos with my Tamron 90 than I've managed with my much more expensive Sony FE 2.8. It's a shame Tamron don't do one in Sony E mount or I'd switch back.
Have never managed to get a hoverfly to stay still long enough to photograph. Insect photographing opportunities in South London seem pretty limited at this time of year, I really need to try and figure out my macro setup before Spring. Going to try making a pringle tube flash thing at some point.
