The Tamron SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD is one of a select group of supertelephoto zooms for full frame SLRs that reaches or exceeds 400mm focal length, while still being reasonably portable. Its trump card over its closest competition lies in its longer focal length - at 600mm full zoom, it'll let you get your subjects that bit larger in the frame. But does this result in an unacceptable compromise in optical quality?

In this 'Lab Test report' we're publishing full lens test data (as usual prepared by our collaborators at DxOMark) in our unique lens data widget, and presenting our own analysis of what it all means. This allows us to present the test data in the timeliest possible fashion, and compare it to other relevent lenses in our extensive database.
