@bianchi not yet but thanks for reminding me I will try it next time. I read that link and I am amazed.

Oh, here's something I missed so I have no idea what this is about. Do you have a link, Peter?

Peter,

I am a huge fan of Perfect Photo Suite, but use Perfect Effects primarily with landscapes. I would be interested to know what Perfect Effects filters, etc. you are using here. It looks great.

It was my first time using it so I have to check it. I thought it would be nice for landscape shots.

About this guy who tested the lens with 7D and 5d3. I have to find the link, it maybe in 7d thread.

Thanks Eric, I've been shooting everyday ever since I got it so far I am really happy about it.

I'm counting your blessings. The last time I was out with my Tamron, I had to walk on ice crust on top of about 2 feet of snow, with my foot caving through about 50% of my steps, so every step was an unknown height, and I missed the few birds around because 90% of my attention was on my walking. Then, I was sick for a week, and it snowed about an extra 18", and now I've been back at work. It's supposed to be 48 with some sun on Saturday, but almost anywhere I want to go, there will be layers of ice and snow if I want to venture much from the parking lot. Had a perched Red-tailed Hawk near my terrace when I came home yesterday, but there was so much sun-lit fog that I could barely see its shape.

Thanks. There are those who have declared that the 150-600 AF categorically does not work with the 7D. Nice to know that the Internet rush-to-judgment is alive and well. I am ordering mine next week.:D

No one is claiming that AF with the 7D is hopeless; just that it goes "duh" sometimes when it should be attempting to focus from about 500 to 600mm. If I set the 7D to AIServo, focus on a bush 100 feet away, and then raise the lens so that it is pointing at trees 200 feet way, it stays focused at 100 feet, indefinitely. This is true no matter what I set the tracking speed to.

Goodluck on Saturday, It's raining in Seattle for the past week but on of off during the day with strong winds and sometimes we can see the sun peeking in just few minutes till the clouds cover it. Luckily I can just go out to our backyard to practice late in the afternoon. I believe this lens will do great things in a better light. Looking forward with your post.

Agreed; it can also have issues if you bump the focus ring while focusing in SERVO, where it won't pick back up.

However, anyone stating that AF 'categorically' doesn't work on any body is out of their minds, and probably hasn't actually used the lens.

Well, actually some are making this claim, but perhaps not here on POTN. I have been following threads elsewhere as well. It is interesting that Peter has had no problems at all. This suggests more of a sample-based issue than a general problem.

OnOne has a lot of great tutorials on Youtube, but not much (not any?) dealing with wildlife. Lots of landscapes, cityscapes, portraits, etc. Perhaps some of us need to start a thread on using Perfect Effects with wildlife in the PP forum here.

I have seen this exact same thing with other long 3rd-party lenses; the Sigma 50-500 (which I have rented multiple times) does it occasionally too, as does my Tamron 18-270.

Here is a quick video review from Matt Granger on the Tamron 150-600mm. Not too bad, not too bad at at all.
