Second...is the 600 truly a 600 or is it a 570mm? ....

You do know all lenses are rated in MM @ Infinity focus right? It's the magnification that changes the "appeared" MM when you are at MFD.

My Tamron 70-200 is actually slightly longer than the Canon 70-200 2.8 MKII when both are focused at Infinity. But when both are focused at MFD the Canon is much larger due to it's .21x magnification compared to the Tamron's .13x

Just wanted to let you know because it seems you put that into a factor. You need to look at the magnifications of the lenses too.

I've been wondering that as well.

This could be of use, if the 300 2.8 with a 2x t-con on it is indeed an accurate point of reference for a true 600mm:

It looks quite similar to that combo.

According to the lens patent it is 582mm @ infinity. It will be less at shorter distances due to focus breathing. This is consistent with all zooms. Only primes give you a consistent focal length at various distances but we will never see a prime anywhere near this focal length and price.

After reviewing the videos again. IT would be nice for them to of had a second option on the limiter for 5M-15M. That would greatly increase AF speed when you are doing closer objects.

This would have been more beneficial for my shooting. All of my small bird shots are done in this range. The 15M-Infinity would only help with large bird and BIF shots.

If I read the review correctly, image stabilization is not that good which for me is disappointing. Of course, when shooting from a tripod it is not needed.

I'm sure it's fine. the guys mentioned 1/125 @ 600mm. It's probably 4 stops up till around 400mm and about 3 stops beyond that.

I love my VC's

If the VC is that good, I am fine with that. My interpretation of the first paragraph of Image Stabilization sounded very negative to me. This is the review I was reading http://www.trinitylumb​erton.org/category29/ (external link)

One thing that is a concern for me is zoom lock. I know it has a lock to prevent creep when walking (saw that in Franks review). But can you lock it at say 600? If the lens has creep and I'm fairly certain it will, it's going to be a PITA to hold it in place when on a tripod shooting up. Say birds high in a tree, or doing a moon shot.

Hopefully, I am wrong about this. Anyone with any info??

Agreed; i found this to be major PITA with the 150-500OS. Without holding it all the way out (not easy on a 16" long lens), it would creep back to around 416mm at anything steeper than about 75 degrees. :mad:

I use Chrome, which pops up a translate bar at the top of the page when viewing different languages.

I have hopes that this lens will be a decent overall performer. Although being at such a low price as others have said, we will see.

But, I currently own a 70-200 F/4 L IS, and it's an awesome lens, but just way too short for alot of wildlife shots. I saw 2 bald eagles today down by the lake here in the Seattle area, and I had to do massive cropping, even though I was about 45ft away or so.

So, I feel I need to sell this lens, and get the 100-400 Canon, or buy a 400 5.6 in addition to this. I could also look into the Sigma 150-500 or 50-500 potentially.

But, if this lens is as decent as it seems, and can stand up very close to the 100-400, then I'll get this and probably keep my 70-200 :).

Some of the sample shots looked really nice @600. I feel like some that appeared "soft" were maybe from low shutter speeds/low light. We shall see!

You need to keep the 70-200. The 150-600 is way too big and heavy for general use at the wide end - it's a lens that is only meaningful for people who do need lots of reach.

In a half a second i was able to find that the lenses are close in price via google searching. Try it, it works well.
