I'm sure many of us are in this same situation. We all at one point had this...

Sweet. I vote sell one of them, and use the money for more gear. After figuring out which one you like the best first though.

That's what I'm thinking Mike. I'm wondering what the % is for those who decided to sell the Canon or Tamron. They both have pros and cons, focal advantages, size disadvantages etc..

I've been wanting a good Wildlife Lens, but notice the Tammy does stretch the limits of the cameras design at f5-f6.3. Canon does state their cameras may have focus issues beyond f5.6 and this is being experienced by a few new owners of the Tammy who like BIF.

However stretching these limits is providing an excellent lens for a reasonable price. My fav activity is BIF so I took advantage of the number of 100-400L's hitting the used market at the moment. Should receive it tomorrow. If it hadn't been for the comments of focus issues with BIF, I likely would have gone with the Tammy. I just felt I'd play it safe with a long time winning combination 100-400L on a 7D. If I owned a camera that handled low light better like a 5DIII I may have gone to the Tammy.

I've got to get my hands on a lowner Tamron.
Heck, my big prime doesn't even hit 600mm without a TC!

Let us know what you think about the lens.

Heya,

Once I have the Tamron 600mm, and use it a bit, I'll know whether I want to keep it or not. I'm still waiting on my order from B&H to ship. I'm hoping for the best, because I'm stuck if it has rear/front focus and will return it if that's the case as I don't have built-in MFA tuning in my camera and will not buy a new camera just for that, at least yet anyways.

I sold my 70-200 F4L. I found it really wasn't all that better than my 55-250 IS. Used the money to put towards the 150-600 Tamron. If the Tamron focuses well enough for me to keep it, then all is well. If not, I'll return her and either get a second copy and hope for the best, or simply get a final refund and go with a different lens. I want/need the reach. 600mm is just too much reach for $1k to pass up. I'll settle for 400~500 if I have to. But 600mm without a TC is just awesome.

Very best,

For the time being, I'm keeping both. The Canon still packs up smaller and lighter, and has a shorter MFD; both of which can still be useful at times.

DreDaze. I am stuck with both. Sorta lending out the pumpduster to fellow Canon enthusiastic that don't have the opportunity to experience a zoom tele. I've been testing the tamzooka everyday for the past week or so on various subjects.

A Poll sounds great. I need to research how to get one started.

I have a feeling you are going to like the balance and weight of the Tamzooka vs your Big Prime! :)

I agree with you the 600mm w/o the TC is just simply amazing for the value of this lens.

Thanks for your input

Syndremark. I'm feeling that same thing.. The Pumpduster can fit vertically in many of my street bags, but tamzooka is not happening! too many pros and cons to think about :confused:

Strongly considering selling the Canon to fund the Tammy! I want to plan a trip to Yellowstone this summer, and the extra reach would be nice.
