I dont know if i got a bad copy of the tamron but man this thing is just awful when zoomed it. Its not the sharpest nor does it have good contrast. My 18-135 annihilated the tamron

That's sad to hear.

I had a similar experience with the Sigma 100-400C. After waiting and researching, I bought one new. I was extremely disappointed. I must have had a bad copy, but it was very soft and poor contrast as well. I tried everything and used the USB dock, but it was very disappointing.

I was very happy with my Canon 70-300 II, and of course am extremely happy with my Canon 100-400L II. Hopefully it's just a bad copy and you can exchange it. I had the same experience with my 100-400L. First copy had serious focus issues and was replaced. 2nd one is perfect.

Hope it works out for you.

I just ordered a lightly used canon 100-400 mark ii. I returned the tamron. I am going to pick up the 55-250 stm as soon as l can. Have to recover from the 100-400L first though.
