I own the Tamron 200-500. The best way to describe it, for me, is that it is a fun lens to use...and I find the pictures to be more than satisfactory...especially at the price.

My primary body is a 40D, and I have some wonderful wildlife pictures...when the wildlife isn't too wild (i.e. moving too fast!). I generally use a monopod most of the time with the lens...although it can be handheld. I also have some wonderful baseball pictures with the lens...using center point for focus (also used for wildlife).

I do not pixel-peep. I do not sell my wildlife photos...they are for me and my family.

But the lens is fun...and much smaller/lighter/less expensive than the white ones that the sports pros use. But in my hands, I have fun with the Tamron.

...my two cents.
