  1. As wildlife photographer moving into other arenas landscape, waterfalls, waterscape, architecture etc.. Just ordered a Haida filter adapter/holder and filter system for the Tamron 15-30. Including square format CPL, graduated ND’s, reversed ND and ND’s. Along with the Feisol tournament ct 3442 and really right stuff BH40 and RRS Bracket for D850 with the battery pack. All this to use the D850 Tamron 15-30 combo.
