A while back, someone wanted to see how this lens does when tracking a bird flying AT you. While these aren't brilliant results, I managed a short couple of bursts this weekend and the weakness in the images are not due to the lens:

I'm not the greatest (really, I'm not even moderately *good*) at in-flight shots; if I can pull this off in the short distances that I had to work with, I'd imagine that someone that actually knows how to set up for one could do pretty darned well with it.



They look great. Much to modest!;)

Awesome. Yeah, this lens can take some extremely sharp images at 400.

Amazing birdshots here! Tx!
Thought I'd join in and happend to find a (Tamron) 2x TC on a APS-C (600d). The moon was still out so this is taken some minutes ago.
ISO 400 - 1/200 - F/12.6 - manual AF - (camera)timer set on 2 sec
Not the highest Q but not that bad.

That is a little strange... I'm not criticizing, just asking.
The moon photo attached is unedited except default sharpening in Lightroom (25) with a full frame camera and the Tamron 70-300mm lens (at 300mm) and slightly cropped. By my calculation (if I'm not wrong) your photo is approx a 40% crop. I can't imagine the x2TC makes it so much worse when stopping down and considering the crop, etc. 1/200 should probably be ok too. ISO 400 isn't bad too.
I'm wondering if there was a focus issue, or the 2 second timer wasn't enough, or...?
I would expect it to be better considering my photo.

A 2x TC will make a big difference, but atmospheric conditions can make even more. So you can't compare pictures taken from different locations very reliably.
