I don't know. These seem like 70-300 and 55-250 IS type quality. None are bitingly sharp, just kind of average. Which is kind what I expected given the price. There aren't many (any?) other options to get stabilized 600mm (960mm @ 1.6 crop!!) at even triple the price of this lens so hard to complain too loudly.

Yea, it looks correctable though.

For many people (perhaps myself included if the AF is good), this is good enough IQ. I'll take 55-250 IQ for this type of lens because I'm not going to be spending 3k on a wildlife lens, never mind $6-12k.

If you are shooting in RAW, you can easily fix CA issue.

This is not a subscription post... ;)

I've been lurking (actually generally ignoring) POTN for a few months, too involved in other hobbies and life, but seeing this thread made my ears perk up.

I've been hankering for something longer than 400mm at an affordable price - this just may do the trick. The images linked so far look OK by me - yeah, RAW files would be cool to see what the true originals looked like, but early-adopters will get a chance at that shortly enough when the lens gets out to retail. Those threads will be reviewed extremely closely by moi.

Easily correctable CA. And if you think that's major CA, don't ever buy a Canon 85mm f1.8.:p The 85 1.8 images look like someone went berserk with a highlighter. :D

I agree with your assessment of the sharpness, though. But that's where the price difference comes in. If it could keep up with the 600mm f4 IS, there'd be one more zero before the decimal point on the price tag.

Good find. That thing looks like a monster when it's fully-extended and has the hood on! Glad it folds down nicely for transporting it around though.

Pictures seemed to be taken in bad light. Looking forward to seeing more shots from it, especially anything in AI Servo.

There aren't many (any?) other options to get stabilized 600mm (960mm @ 1.6 crop!!) at even triple the price of this lens so hard to complain too loudly.

I had/have the 3 cheapest ways to get to around 600mm at f/5.6 "on a budget". The Sigma 120-300 OS, Canon 300 2.8 non-IS, and the Canon 400mm DO, all with teleconverers obviously. Not only are all 3 options at least twice the price of this Tamron, but the size/weight of all 3 options are significantly more, nevermind tha you have to factor in the size/weight of a TC.

I currently have the 400mm DO, and while I've been nothing but happy with it, even with the 1.4TC, the price and zooming of this Tamron has me thinking of giving it a shot for awhile and seeing if it can replace the DO, we'll see.

I am not sure if it will replace 400DO but it can compliment it when you don't want to lug around weight of heavy tripod and lens.

You have to be kidding....651 US $.... I am with many in that I like the look of this lens but really, at that cost...it is almost a throw-away and quality will have to be looked at pretty heavily before a purchase by this amigo.....
