A 150-600mm a travel lens of choice? :confused:

Price seems amazing, we'll have to see what the performance is like.

Why not, knowing Tamron it will not be heavy as made from Plastic, it will zoom to 600mm without carrying a TC, way easier to travel with than 100-400 and 500 f4, for instance ;)

None of those are my definition of travel lenses :p I can't see myself using longer than 300mm!

I don't agree with easier to carry with. The 100-400 is 3.5" diameter x 7.5" long and 3lbs. This Tamron is 4.2" in diameter 10.15" long and 4.3 lbs

It's definitely bigger!

Unless you meant carrying this instead of BOTH 100-400 and 500 then yes I would agree. This would be a one lens covers all outdoor solution for length.

To me, at least, this sounds almost too good to be true, and you know what that usually means.

Maybe what Neilyb meant was long length wise (600mm)?
300mm/100-400mm you still need to carry a TC to cover for extra mm.

Good to see that at a time Canon can think of nothing better than revamping a lens and drastically upping the price, that Sigma and Tamron are pricing to sell.

It's been a terrific couple of years for the independants in my opinion. Long may it continue.

True, but a t-con is very small, about the size of the 40mm pancake.

Price is actually too good to be true....makes me a little skeptical about the IQ and focus speed your going to get.

With that said, if it's as good as my 100-400, I will buy one!

To be fair, it needs to be as good or better than the 100-400 with a 1.4 t-con.

^^Well if you said a 400 with TC I would agree. The 100-400 is a great lens, but with a TC it's pretty bad. If that is all the Tamron could do at 600 I think most people would be disappointed.

I would take the Canon ps super zoom over using a TC on my 100-400.

This is definitely news to me and as a college student, its a longer zoom lens thats affordable. I can't wait to see the reviews on this lens and see get my hands on it!

Wow... I am carefully watching this one... I just may have to preorder it. Even if not *extremely* sharp, if it is as good as the 100-400L but with the additional range I am all over it. The new build quality looks great and the 3 or 4-stop IS will be excellent.

I wish Canon made/updated a few of these lenses and not just $10,000+ super-tele's. I can deal with f/5.6 and f/6.3 aperture on these lenses.

I'll be keeping an eye on this one for sure. If the IQ is good then I'll definitely picking up one. Like others, I'm a bit concerned that the price is too good to be true. If this lens has stellar IQ they could, and would, ask more for it, IMO.
