Do you still have the 150-500? If so, would you be able to take a pic at 500mm on the Sigma and 600mm on the Tamron on a subject approx 30 metres away? Also, is the AF on one better than the other? Cheers.

I do still have it. Here are a couple shots two days ago that are pretty close to your request. They were taken at 60 feet, or about 20 meters. Both 100% crops, nothing done to them.

thanks for the response,
I've been unable to get out much, the wind here was so high yest. I couldnt hold myself or the camera steady, but it seem that the "sweet spot" of lens is F8...well, f11 maybe sharper but too slow, not enough depth of field

btw,very "underrated" bird, the mallards. If they were rare, everyone would be remarking how beautiful they are.

And, another shot from today - not the greatest, but this thread is for images from the new lens, and this is one, so what the heck...

Heavily cropped - it's not quite a 100% crop, but close, about 75%. A fair bit of sharpening applied too. Was taken at 1/1000 shutter and f/9.

Thanks :D There definitely is a big difference there in terms of reach. I certainly wasn't expecting such a difference in IQ, however. I will mostly be using it for motorsport, particularly of cars coming onto the front straight etc, so even the AF speed of the 150-500 is fine. I guess now I must decide between the Tamron and the 400mm 5.6. The only reason I bring the 400mm 5.6 into this is that I am going to upgrade to a 70-200 2.8 IS II and get both 1.4 and 2x extenders so that range is covered and the rest of the Tamron (<400mm) will be essentially useless to me under my shooting circumstances. The VC, weather sealing and native range of 400-600mm (ie: no TC) are definitely huge advantages of the Tamron though.

Nice shot! Good details still, considering the crop and whatnot.

Some shots from Monday. Eagle isn't that great, I got some better ones, but need to process yet. I like how the light hits the eye though.

This ones kinda cool I think, how its blurred, but was on accident. Shutter speed was too low, from trying to overexpose alot, since he was in shadow. I got some other ones, sharp and posed, but need process as well.

some beautiful shots.

Am a Hobbyist.

i have a 6d and just started to get into Birds and BIF. I always use center point and AI Servo Hand held.

Was thinking of getting 400 / 5.6 but looking at these images , reach of 600 looks very enticing.:D

Any suggestions.

used a 70-200 sofar where reach was the issue other than my elementary photographic skills

Some more from today... I promise I'll leave you guys alone for a while after this ;)

The first four were taken with the 7D, the last two with the 6D. Except for a brief period of clear weather today, it was yet another tough day for photography. I'm having fun with the lens and getting more comfortable each time out.

Can you take hundred shots by handheld with this lens?

I took about 450 shots hand held with mine today. Doesn't mean any of them were any good though!

I think a better question is how long of a session can you hand hold it. With a fast card, you can pull off several hundred shots in only a couple of minutes, but I don't think that's what the question is really after. Regardless, think of it as going to the gym and shooting some birds, all rolled into one.
