Re: 90D + Tamron 150-600 g2

Hi -

I don't have the G2,  but I had the G1 from when it was released (I got one of the early copies and had the firmware upgraded). I used this lens with my 6D, my  70D (now sold), my 80D, and my 7DM2.  I also have the 400 mm f/5.6L (non IS lens) , the 100-400 mm f/4.5-5.6L mark 2, and the 400 mm f/4 DO mark2. I have borrowed from Canon the 500mm f/4L IS II, and the 600 mm f/4L IS II.

That G1 I had was simply rubbish at shooting BIF on any Canon body I owned.  Even though it got me to 600mm, I just could not tolerate using it for BIF. Now, for perched birds on a FF body at the 6D, it was much better. And it could make sharp images at say 300mm (it was not sharp at 600mm f/8 but it got better at around 560 mm f/8, but still could not match any of the Canon lenses (even the 400 mm f/5.6L is sharper).

So, my bottom line was I used it has a tool and avoided using it for BIF and just used it for perched birds during migration until I got the DO, as the f/4 proved to be a killer feature for me.

Maybe your G2 is better, but I'm not spending my money on one.

Good luck.
