I need a little more reach from my 70-300L and yes money is tight on a fixed income. Is this lens at least as good for images as the 70-300 or close to.

Get the RF100-400mm. A marriage made in heaven - very fast AF and excellent sharpness.

A good copy of the Tamron should be a decent performer. You can read one review and compare it to your 70-300L (or other lenses) here:

Since you have an R6 you might also consider the Canon RF 100-400, which is currently on sale for $499:

It is slower but lighter. Since you can use it without an adapter, it will be smaller to pack and maybe better balanced in use. It has limited options for a tripod collar though.

Also, the copy I had of the Tamron 100-400mm when I had a DSLR was soft and the AF slow. I think it's no contest between it and the RF100-400mm.

Looks like Dustin Abbott, Ken Rockwell and others did reviews on the Tamron, might be hard to argue against the rf 100-400 though.

Others in the price range are 100-400 v1, and 150-600 C and other 150-600's. They are heavier, though

Wasn't going to post on fm today but it's pouring rain, for one thing.

Thanks all but the f/8 is the major problem for me where the Tamron is 6.3. I can get a nice and clean Tamron for $400. Hoping someone with a R Canon and the 100-400 Tamron can give me some yes or no.

It looks like the RF needs f/9 at 400mm to clear some all-over aberrations on the R5.
The Sigma 100-400/6.3 looks better than the Tamron, except for the corners at 400mm.

It's not perfect, but I've gotten great use out of the Sigma 100-400 with my R5 and R7.

I've owned the 100-400 RF and just purchased the Tamron 100-400 at my local camera store. While the RF is a native mount and is faster, the Tamron is fast enough to focus on the R5. I was pleasantly surprised by the IQ of the Tamron on the R5.

I would take the Canon over the Tamron any day, regardless of the f8, and I live in the cloudy, rainy Pacific Northwest.
