    Hello everyone, does anybody have this lens for M5 or M6? Is it as fast focusing as advertised? would this be a good upgrade for efm 55-200mm? would you trade up to 70-300mm from 55-200mm or keep both?
  • Thank you, looking at your gear list wouldn't the Tamron 18-400mm replace many of your other lenses?
  • Thanks for your comment. Is it possible to use a tripod ring? How do you carry it when attached to M5.....neck strap?  Would the weight damage the M5 lens mount as it dangles from your neck?

  • Thank you Marco, I always read your posts. It would be interesting if Canon did make that 400mm f5.6 mirror lens. I might try one of these, the low price makes it not much of a loss if it's no good.
