Re: Very informative.

Comparing the 150-600 Tamron with the 100-400II + 1.4TC, I cant see a big difference. The Canon photo looks a bit nicer somehow, OTOH the Tamron shot is bigger.  Not really a lot in it.

The Tamron gives the convenience of not needing a TC, whereas the Canon is a little lighter, and presumably has better autofocus (until you stick a TC on it). It's a difficullt choice, not helped by the Canon being twice as expensive.
