I loved my old 200-400, so 150-600 + VC for under $1100? Sign me up! Finally Ill have a lens I can get sneak out to 600mm and not break the bank!
(Computer design and tolerancing is amazing!)

I picked up a 100-400l on a Black Friday sale. Very curious how this compares in IQ and focus speed.

Yeah, someone down there should be willing to cough up an extra $400US.

Cannot believe the price, only if Canon would adopt Tamron's strategy

The 100-400 and Sigma 50-500 and 150-500 are getting heavily discounted where I live. This Tamron will only add more pressure for the competition to improve.

I still can't believe it. 600mm with full frame coverage and VC for under $1100. Something is going to have to give. Either review sites will put it through its paces and reveal optical deficiencies, or Tamron has created something no one has ever done and they won't be able to keep them in stock. Maybe they'll have to raise the price

We'll see if this becomes the demise of my excellent 100-400L.

If the reviews and IQ are as good as the price, I will be unloading my Canon 400mm 5.6L for this Tamron.

Thinking about buying it just to see if I like it, can always return it. But, I want to line up a series of tests so I can return it ASAP if I don't like it...

I think this is going to be one of those products that you have to try for yourself.
The obvious compromises Tamron has to make in designing a lens with these specs and in this price range will be a big factor and whether or not those compromises live up to our expectations will be a very individual experience.

Personally, I can't wait to try one.
I'll be comparing it to the Canon 100-400, with and without 1.4x TC, and the Canon 300 f2.8is with 2x TC.

One hopes they will be innovations, not compromises.

When I inquired to Tamron about using a TC on their lens the answer was NO not recommended. In fact they do not recommend using a TC on any digital SLR I was told. So I am not sure just what to expect if one is tried or if one is found that works...........just an FYI from my sourcing ......

I was never too happy with the looks of the BG when using a TC on the 100-400 and am personally thinking that the Tamron will need to hold its ground up to 600 and is not likely going to react well to a TC

Preordered one for Nikon. For me if it is as good as 70-300VC, I'll be very happy. If better, it'll be amazing.

What can you really get for 1K nowadays, especially over 400mm?

The 70-300VC was very, very good. I hope they did not change it for worse.

I pre-ordered the Canon mount. Some more early images are coming out of Japan where it has already been released, and even wide open at 600mm they look quite good.
