Pretty much now IMO the value and IQ of this Tamron will be up to those that choose to buy and shoot it. As much as I liked all my 100-400's they never really took a TC very well so to get to 500-600 at f/6.3 will be fine with me, it is 1/3 of a stop..........no big deal.

More than likely the next version of the 100-400 is on the horizon, unfortunately if it follows path of the newer Canon long L glass the price will triple. If money were no object the IQ no doubt will be excellent but if you can't justify or you are not 'willing' to afford one then you go to the next best thing

If canon releases a version II of the 100-400 then as the past has shown, it will be substantially more.

What happens when a version II of a lens gets released? the used prices of the version I go up.

the 100-400 is a pretty decent lens.

and yes, some people will dump stuff cheap because they don't care, need the money, or they just want to get rid of it.

no one here has used the tamron yet, and who knows it may not even a true 600mm.

I hope the tamron is awesome. it will be the perfect lens for my wife to use whenever we travel together.

How do the weights compare between the Canon 100-400 and the new Tamron ? Isn't the Tamron heavier ?

So basically the new Tamron is almost exactly 2 pounds lighter than the 300 2.8 (V1) with the 2XIII.
That is a substantial difference and just a little less difference for the 300 2.8 II with 2XIII.

Yes. I have no problem handling the 400 DO, so the Tamron should be similar.

Looking very promising on IQ. Just need to see how it does with fast action work.

That's an older 300 f2.8 IS version vs the new Tamron, isn't it?

The price difference is not significant and the reach...the reach at 15M...will it be significant?

I quit worrying about everything that could be wrong with the lens. After reading this review and comparing image IQ of the Big Whites, I place an order for my new Tamron 150-600mm. What more could you possibly ask for in a lens that cost $1069.00? Can't await for it to come in.

How do you think it's going to do on Fast Action Photography? (Duh)
Don't mean to be rude or anything but it's a $1069.00 5-6.3 lens for heaven sake. Maybe at ISO 3200 and a really fast shutter speed it can at least compete.
