Tamron 150-600 on my 7D ?
4 months ago

The more I look at this lens, the more I think I want it.

http://www.ephotozine.com/article/tamron-sp-150-600mm-f-5-6-3-di-vc-usd-lens-review-23866

I currently shoot a lot of BIF, and wildlife, with my 400 5.6. I'm wondering how it would compare with the Tamron @ 400 mm ? And of course, I'm wondering how many keepers I'd get @ 600mm ?

Even if the Tamron was not quite as sharp (which I would expect, considering I am comparing a long zoom, to a prime.... apples to oranges) at least the Tamron has VC (vibration control) while the 400 5.6 does not.

Anybody here own both ?

Your thoughts on this lens ?

PS, If I did not already own the 400 5.6, I think the Sigma 150-500 might be a good choice too... but since I do own the 400mm, adding only 100mm to my current distance, would not be much of a jump...
