Tamron 150-600MM F/5-6.3 DI VC USD

884479
Review Date: Jun 5, 2014 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,069.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Amazing range, super sharp, very nice colors
Cons:
Takes a lot of practice, especially over 500mm, fairly long mfd.

I've had this lens since release day. I have taken several thousand photos with it and it has been a winner with me. I have a 70D and a 6D and I gravitate towards using it with the 6D. There is just something about how the files look.

I did not buy this lens for birding, so I totally understand the comments and issues that it has with tracking. For me, it has opened up a new world, taking photos between 450-600mm. It is a great way to see the world.

I have owned the 400mm 5.6, 100-400mm and now the Tamron.

Pros: Size, weight, color, super IS and semi-macro mode
Cons:
None so far

A very nice step up for a travel all-in-one lens from the 24-105. Super macro mode!! Very satisfied with the photos.

Pros: Size, weight, IS upgrade, color rendition, weatherproof
Cons:
Have to buy a 3rd party lens colar

I bought this lens specifically for a 3 week trip to Iceland. I used it all summer in preparation. Wow, is this lens ever a dandy, especially for landscape photography. It was so easy to open up to F11 and beyond, even with handholding, due to the IS. The colors that this lens produces are fabulous. It will not replace my 100-400 as my main wildlife lens, but when I want to travel light, this lens and a T3i body are perfect companions. Only con was tracking down a lens collar.
