by 600mm the lens isn't especially sharp at all

That statement plus the ample supply of PF noted, is enough to turn me off this lens.

A quality xmm-400mm zoom lens with a matched TC would possibly do better.

There are many real world examples that would suggest otherwise - especially stopped down a bit. Excellent bokeh to boot. First link especially has some phenomenal shots @ 600mm.

These photo-reviews say more about this lens than any formal lab results ever will, the first link in India is particularly stunning and shows the lens is capable of truly top flight work, let's cross our fingers and hope Tamron bring this lens out in the Pentax bayonet

Thanks for the links Jay.
