  • I think that the problems referred to were mainly experienced by 7D users and a couple of 1D4 users too. Try a Google for 150-600 af issues for a guide. Personally I never had a problem with ...
  • It would be fair to assume that Jim, an acquaintance at our local reserve managed to get one from the last batch around 3-4 weeks ago and Intro2020, the UK Tamron agents, assured him that the ...
  • It would be nice if someone made a holster style case that would take this lens with a 1D body fitted. I just don't see the point of a lens only case when you still have a body to carry. Denis.
  • Good question, I have wondered the same thing for years. With 128gb memory sticks, HD/SSD's etc available you would think that someone would develop a battery powered HD and develop a system to ...
  • I agree Steve but Phil is not a troll sort of person and I think it may just be a misunderstanding if he is dealing with Intro2020, the UK agents for Tamron. Intro2020 (read "Tamron" for UK) will ...
  • I would have thought that the firmware upgrade (only for Canon) would have been included 3 weeks ago. However, I use 1D3 and 7D and I don't see any difference to be honest but I never had a ...
  • Tamron in the UK is handled by Intro2020 and I assume that this is who you are dealing with. They are fully aware of a firmware update, see your PM's, and what you describe is their wording and ...
  • Agreed, these workflow suggestions are spot on. The pic in the first post has no part in full focus which to me would suggest a full press in one go, or what I would call a grabbed shot. As the ...

  • Agreed 100% and well said.
  • If you haven't already done so I would start here: http://www.tamron.ca/generic.htm?ECINFO=TAMRON_DEALERS and begin with the most local dealers to you by phone and expand search accordingly. To be ...
  • Well captured David. Usually when things like this happen I usually end up watching and forget about the camera, unfortunately I could relate too many stories like this when I have been watching ...

  • Nice shots Steve. I think this is a great lens and huge value for money. For some who just want a "plug-'n-play" lens it may be a bit difficult to get used to though and it is seriously worth ...
  • Agreed 100%. Grab shots are your worst enemy, it does need a slight hesitation before pressing the shutter release fully. I shoot with my VC on all the time as well. The statement regarding whether ...
  • Sorry to hear you have had this problem and I guess it could be the lens. I had the same problem (or similar) but never with the 200-500. In my case it was either the front and back elements ...
