I will try my Sony a7r w/focus peaking this weekend to see if I can squeeze a little more detail out of this tammy.

You won't get more detail out of a bird far away, cropped to pieces, no matter how long your lens is. My view is that you don't get a 600mm for birds farther away but you get a 600mm to get the birds more frame filling.

I agree and that's what I'm doing, I'm just taking the AF out of the equation to see if I can get a little more detail.

Hi team
While I'm waiting for BHPhoto to get the Tamron 150-600 in stock (and while waiting to pay off my CC due to last BH purchase), I'm living vicariously through this thread.
Any chance one of you have aircraft in flight shots to share using the lens?
Lol. Cheers and thanks.


Cheers

Separately, I see Ken Rockwell hasn't done a review on the Tamron 150-600 yet. The review world isn't complete without it.

That is too big...tried it.

I finally received the Lowepro case today and while it's not a snug fit, I think it will do quite nicely for my needs.

Mine's still b/o from Adorama. Meanwhile, folks who ordered after I did are getting theirs from B&H. I wonder if Tamron is tweaking the lens at all (via firmware or whatever), after getting so many returns from the first batch. If so, it'll be worth the wait. But I kinda doubt that's actually happening.

Moose... You have "Back ordered Tamron 150-600 f/5-6.3 Di VC USD" in your gear list. Love it!!!
Don't let not owning a lens get in the way. :) full respect.

I'm interested to see how that body works. It also doesn't have the AA filter right?

A7r doesn't have built-in stabilization.

That's weird. I thought the trend was going towards universal IBIS.

Correct, a7r definitely has more detail than my Canon body's.

There are two things you can get detail of, though. When an image is under-sampled, such as when you have a very sharp lens, and not enough pixel density for it, your image detail gets distorted into pixel detail. Ideally, you would not want to see any evidence that an image is composed of pixels.

Lack of an AA filter works optimally when the lens is only moderately sharp; in that case it avoids any unnecessary softening beyond what the lens does. When the lens is very soft, it doesn't matter if there is an AA filter or not, because the AA's contribution to softness is insignificant compared to that from the lens. When the lens is very sharp, you start seeing false detail, in pattern which emphasizes the geometrical grid of pixels, more obvious to some people than others.

Still very bad light here in Sweden, but I managed to capture this (ISO 3200).

Wow, nice shot!

Same here, mine arrived yesterday and I think it's just about right for this lens. Just enough extra room that I was able to cut some dense foam to fit the ends - giving the lens more padding on both ends while also holding it in place inside the case. It's well padded all around but doesn't move inside when I shake the case.

Works for me.
