Tamron 150-600 vs 200-500
4 months ago

I found these resolution figures at ephotozine.com. I took the resolution figures at 500mm for the 200-500 and at 600mm for the 150-600. As you can see the 150-600 is doing better at 600mm than the 200-500 at 500mm. Since I own the Tamron 200-500 and being very happy about the sharpness, even wide open, this new Tamron 150-600 should deliver sharp pictures all the way till 600mm. Just my thought.

Keep in mind this test was done with a full frame camera, so edge performance will be better with a crop camera.

I sold my Tamron 200-500 and already ordered the 150-600. It should arrive by the end of may, that's what they told me.
