Well, I'm back in the game. Picked up a refurbed 80D to replace my drowned one. No I'm really struggling to determine what lens I want. I do a mostly nature/wildlife and then when the airshows come I make sure to go and get shots from there. I'm considering either a 70-200 with a 2x tc or a 100-400 with a 1.4x tc. I can't afford the canon lenses so I've been looking at the Tamron versions of these.

If anyone has any experience with the Tamron combinations on their 80D, I'd love to hear about them.

Thanks everyone.

Harry: I have a Canon 100-400 II, which I love but, yes, it was expensive. I'm so glad I broke the bank to buy it, though. However, while I don't own any Tamron lenses, I can tell you that Canon Photo Plus magazine here in the UK tested eight telephoto zoom lenses in its latest issue. The Tamron SP 70-300 f4-5.6 DI VC USD didn't win overall but it was the Best Value winner. Costs £330/$450. The overall winner was the Sigma 70-200 f2.8 EX DG OS HSM at £900/$1,300. The Tamron was given four and a half marks out of five, while Canon's EF 70-200f4L IS USM, costing £1,100/$1,150, was given only four stars out of five. Don't think Canon will be too pleased with that result. Hope this helps and good luck with your quest for a new lens!

Thanks Terry. I think I'm going to go to the camera shop down in Bradenton and try both of them out on my 80D body and see what I like.

I just bought the 100-400 for my 80D since I'm leaving for Africa in mid may.

Last trip to Africa 5 years ago I brought a 70-300 L and it was adequate but I think from everything I've read that the 100-400 will be better.

When I return I'll sell the 100-400 because for he most part I am not a sports or wildlife photographer and so it's a lens I bought for this specific purpose. But, I cannot wait!

Sigma beats out Tamron in the 70-200 variety? I'm looking at picking up the Tamron G2. Wonder where that stacks up?

Yes, in that magazine's opinion. But note that it was a £900/$1300 Sigma versus a £330/$450 Tamron. I have to say I'd rather stick to Canon, but Tamron and Sigma certainly seem to be worth considering.

I've been watching and reading reviews of the newer Tamron and they all say Tamron is on par with the canon 2.8 II. Albeit with slightly slower auto focus. For 600 less. I like Tamron because it's not white. The whitening canon L zooms really bothers me.

I have a friend that just picked up the 150-600 G2 for the Nikon. That one gets pretty good reviews.

I'm referring to 70-200 g2. I plan to rent the 150-600g2 this summer however
