I look at it this way (and this is only my viewpoint): I have a 500 VI that I shot almost always with a 1.4x, giving my 700mm. I almost always shoot at f/8 for birds. The samples thus far are all wide open (I haven't seen anything shot at f/8) and thus far have all looked very good. So, f/8 should be better. As far as AF speed goes, given I'm shooting with a 1.4x, and judging by the speed of the new Tamron 70-200 VC, I would expect them to be very similar.

So what do I give up?
...Show more

Even with motorsports, f/8 is typically just fine, and is the reason I plan to pick up one of these Tamron's to use alongside my 400 DO with 1.4 TC, and we'll see if the Tamron can keep up with it throughout 2014. A big ask of it, but you never know.

I have been following posts on several sites . I sent an email about pre ordering and when next tax free sale is .
99 % of my shots are for me and I am not good enough to pixel peep unless I am cropping .

I didn't see this link posted yet and I enjoyed reading it. I hope I post it "correctly" within guidelines, and if I don't I apologize in advance.

Hey, with all that gear that you own, just sell something.

But you may as well wait for my review, when my copy finally arrives.

Here is the first comparison against the 400mm f5.6. Hopefully he can do some more comparisions but so far the Tamron seems to have the edge at 400mm wide open.

That 400f5.6 looks like a poor sample, front-focused or vibration was the cause of a less than sharp image.
My 100-400 is sharper than that and it isn't quite as sharp as the 400 prime.
The Tamron shot looks quite good though, even toward the bottom right corner.
More evidence still needed.

The 600mm is the last image posted. You just need to click on it to view at 100% and compare with the 400mm images.

He has also made available the RAW files for download.

Thanks, that 600mm shot looks good enough for me. Now when will my order arrive?

I only saw the first two images available for download, not the 600mm one.

There is something seriously wrong with his 400mm f5.6, because in the sample image nothing is really sharp. The bokeh is really funky, too. He could be using a cheap filter, perhaps?

Charles,

You're hobbies aren't about to change. Your subject matter will definitely change to some degree but I'll bet you start taking more pictures than before. BTW: Congratulation on the new baby in the oven.

Alright, I couldn't resist...put in my pre-order at B & H. I decided that even if it can't stand up to my Canon 400 DO with a 1.4TC, I'll still use it enough otherwise to justify having it (assuming the IQ is acceptable, obviously), and I had some cash in my paypal account from lenses previously sold that helped me convince myself it made sense.

We'll see if the shipping estimate of 1/17 sticks.
