  • You say both the Tamron and Canon 70-300mm lenses are better than the 150-600mm, but it sounds like you have never tried two of the lenses in your conclusion. How are they better? Smaller, ...
  • I agree just about all macro lenses are optically excellent. I have not experienced any near infinity optical issues with the 2 macros I have owned and I have used both as a short telephoto ...
  • I have used the Canon non-IS macro for years and recently upgraded to the Tamron. The Tamron gives up nothing to the older Canon. The new lens is built just as well, has similar excellent bokeh ...
  • Take a look at wildlife forums or societies for good info on where local animals are. Join your local camera club if it exists and hook-up with like minded individuals. Visit nearby state or ...
  • Hey thanks to everyone who took the time to look at my work.  I hope that it has been useful to some of you.  I put a lot of time and effort into my photography/site and your encouraging words help. ...
  • Well value has to taken into account as well we don't live in some sort of world where money grows on trees. The Tamron is a lot better than any of the other ultra-telephoto zooms before it. I ...
  • I wrote a fairly lengthy review over at my site for the new(ish) Tamron 150-600mm lens. I am really enjoying the lens but it does need some careful use and time to get used to it. Having a 600mm ...
  • Nice, you are going to love the 400mm!  The 400 f/5.6 will produce images just as sharp (if not more so) than the 300 f/4, especially when compared to the 300 + 1.4x converter.  Be diligent about ...
  • Thanks I really enjoy the images I get with my 300mm. It is by far my most used lens since I bought it 4 years ago. You should not need to stop down to get nice sharp results as it normally is ...
  • I find the lens works decently in low light. The slow apertures don't help but you can usually over come this with higher ISO. I try not to use the lens wide open (f/6.3) at 600mm but some times ...
  • Hey, thanks for looking.  It is nice to get feedback from a talented photographer as yourself.  I am very lucky to have come upon such co-operative animals and the light was just perfect for a ...
  • I was in the Ottawa Valley a couple of weeks ago on a family cottage trip. There were deer everywhere you turned and we must have seen over a dozen animals. Photography was not my main goal but I ...
  • These are absolutely outstanding shots, some of the best birds in flight shots as I have seen.  You should be very proud of these! Jay
  • I would have to agree with most of what has been already said. If the 300mm f/4 IS has a weekness it is not at its minimum focus distance, its near infinity. I use this lens as a macro more than ...
  • This was the first digital camera that I owned and truly loved. It took/takes amazing photos and it handles very nicely, you're going to really enjoy it. All of the photos in my galleries from ...
  • This is a nice capture of what I'm sure is a special moment.  If I had one suggestion it would be to try tweaking the white balance a bit as the skin tone and the whole image is cast very green. Jay
  • First of all this is an excellent shot of a snowy owl. If birds in flight are your primary goal then the 50D may not be the best choice if you have a larger budget. If you compare the 50D against ...
  • Shooting last week netted some first images of a couple of bird species for me. A productive day to say the least!! Adult Black Crowned Night Heron: 50D @ ISO 800, 1/160s & Tamron 150-600mm VC @ ...
  • A 50D does sell for not much at all right now (like $300-400). Heck, I bought a second one used 2 years ago for less than $400. The 60D has some image quality over the 50D at higher ISO, while the ...
  • I really like the results I get with my 2 50Ds. Having used the 20D, 40D, 7D as well as the 50D and the 50D beats all older bodies hands down. It is much better than the 40D at low ISO and the ...
