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.

Heya,

Order it, use it. If it does what you need, then you have your answer. If it doesn't do what you want. Return it. And you still have your Canon. If you find yourself not needing the Canon after having it and using it (the Tamron) then you simply sell the Canon and recoup funds.

Very best,

Wow you have strong faith in the Tamzooka! I strongly suggest to make the purchase from a seller that will take the lens back just in case you're not satisfied. Then you'll still have your pumpduster!

Can someone with both lenses and some spare time please post up the difference on the same scene between 400mm on the canon and 600mm on the tammy? Curious to see just how much closer it gets, and not having ever looked through a 600mm lens I wouldn't know. Or if anyone knows if this has been posted, a link?

Cheers

That's a significant difference. The branches are a huge give away, when comparing what size it is, percentage wise, cropped.

I agree; I was pretty shocked at the difference, myself.

@MalVeauX: Can you clarify your second statement? I don't quite follow what you mean.

Heya,

The field of view. To achieve it on your 400mm image (wider field of view), you would have to crop it down by a % to have the field of view of the 600mm. And that % is actually significant. It's not like 5%. It's quite a bit.

Very best,

oh yeah, it saves a big chunk of pixels you don't have to crop out for sure, but as pointed out it does put a little extra pressure on controlling unwanted motion so you don't waste all that extra reach!

Having said that in focal length the Tamron is 50% more than the Canon so I guess it shouldn't be a real surprise.

If I owned a camera that handled low light better

I think you already do. See the ISO3200 and 6400 pictures from 7D
(These are not with the TAMahawk though)

@ISO 3200

Understood now; thanks. Yes, it is very much a significant difference; right about 50%-ish, I think

rndman, Thanks, I'm beginning to see I just need to learn how to use the camera and lightroom a bit better. I've been playing with ETTR lately and getting better results. Just need more tricks I suppose.
