I was never able to get good results with this type of lens on my Canon bodies but on the EM-5 its proving really useful and much better than I hoped.

Even good for birds in flight and wild-life and the Doughnuts are nowhere near as bad as I expected

Do you use the f/6.3 or f/8 version? I have been milling over one of this error the reach and haven't seen enough to decide which is better suited.


I'm using the 500mm f8, as far as I know the only Tamron f6.3 mirror was their 300mm version (but I have been wrong many times before   )
