Pros: Good build quality, VR performs well, sharp, good BIF tracking after firmware update, great value for price.
Cons:
Zoom locks only at 150mm or 400mm

I purchased the Tamron 150-600 from a local dealer the day it was released. The lens performs extremely admirably for the price, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for an affordable birding or wildlife lens. On my 6D it is very sharp wide open until about 450mm or so, very sharp at f/7.1 up to about 500-550mm, and at f/8 at 600mm. Sure, the aperture isn't the fastest, but with the 6D, I can boost the ISO to make up for it. Highly recommended.
