Nikon 80-400 VR I to Tamron 150-600mm
8 months ago

Hi guys,

I have been very much into wildlife photography of late, especially birds.  I live right on top of a nature preserve and have been practicing  my technique a lot.

I have been using both my Tamron 70-200mm F2.8 (awesome lens) and my old Nikon 80-400 VR 1 and I am not happy with the focusing on it to be honest. Its seems hit or miss as to if I get a good shot.

I see you can still get a fairly good price for the lens on ebay so was thinking about selling it and going for the Tamron 150-600.  It seems to be getting good results.  I would need to get a gimble for the tripod but I was thinking of doing that anyway.

Any thoughts?
