Anybody Tried New Tamron 150-600

Sun Aug 10, 2014 1:44 pm

Compared to other superzooms in real spotting life? How it performed in comparison with old Sigmas 50-500 APO EX? With new ones 150-500?

I got the lens last week and am pretty happy with it so far. Have just posted a thread with a link to some video I took yesterday afternoon at Sydney Airport. Have yet to do a direct test with the Canon 100-400.

I have it for some monthes, I also have a Canon 100-400. Image quality is the same or better than the 100-400, 600mm is great fun, well solid built, good performance. The only not so good aspect is that it doesn't have image stabilizer for panning mode, like the 100-400, so I turn it off when shooting planes in action, for static objects it's very good.

I'd echo the comments about it being comparable to the Canon 100-400. I've found my post processing is very similar up to 500 mm with it taking a bit extra sharpening due to softness as you approach 600 mm. Definitely a fun lens for the price.

A few examples that are in the database, with the first being around 350 mm:
