Most of you have mentioned the difficulty in rotating the zoom ring to take it from 150-600 in one go.
The short video in this field report below, the guy shows it can be push-pull like the Canon dust pump.

Has anyone tried zooming like that? If that works (w/o any damages to zoom mechanism), it would be neat.

I tried it as soon as I got it, after noticing the lens creep when the lens was vertical. I tried it gently though, as I don't know if reversing the intended drive train puts too much strain on something. I'm going to wait to hear if other people break their lens first, before I really get into it.

My first outing for this lens during my 30 minutes break with not so great weather. As I said I will need tons of practice on this lens so far I like the quickness of the AF.

A white sky is not the best background, but as you can see, this lens handles it pretty well, and has very little in the way of fringing at high contrast edges; just a small amount of classic CA, which is easily corrected.

Hi all, I'm a bit late at this party but still want to contribute to this lovely thread.
Last monday evening I was at a birthday party and decided to play around with the new Tammy.
5dIII / ISO 400 / 483mm/ f/6.3 / 1/60 / two flashes (600 and 580) / center AF point / handhold / full image and 100% crop.
Despite the dimmed lighting AF went pretty OK (freezed on two occasions but that was to be expected so I'm no concerned).
For beeing a compromising lens (big zoomrange ans third party) and for the price tag I'm pretty much blown away. It exceeded my expectations. Well done Tamron! :)

Yup I agree, I was surprised to have good details given the bright background I don't even have to dial up EV. I am pretty happy so far.

Good presentation Lenty of 100% cropped. That is excellent.

I will try to register mine this weekend. I have to admit I need more practice practice practice with this lens
I never shot with 600mm and this is totally different with my 300mm + 2.0x TC.

My first outing for this lens during my 30 minutes break with not so great weather. As I said I will need tons of practice on this lens so far I like the quickness of the AF.

John is right, Peter. Those Cormorant shots look surprisingly clean.

My second outing with this lens finally sunshine but rain the rest of the week. Able to try BIF or should GIL :) So far the AF (AI SERVO) no problem tracking and I am using 7D or it could be too early to tell and I don't know if the problem only exist in 600mm these shots are around 375mm but so far so good. Here are some taken today. I also did 100% crop this is my first time doing this so if I am wrong I apologize but just wanted to show it, I did watched youtube on how to crop 100% if you guys know any link for a better 100% cropping that you can share I appreciate it. Check out the last 3 images. All taken handheld. If I did it wrong I don't mind correcting me. On the 4th picture no sharpness is added.

The easiest way to get 100% crop is to use DPP. Just crop it and don't resize.

Crap. I never got to use that software from canon eventhough I installed it, I jumped into LR right away. Maybe it is time for me to check it out.

Thanks.

A 100% crop in Lightroom is very easy. Crop whatever you want, then export without resizing.
