^^^I agree!
I carry my 60D + 100-400 (hood reversed) in my Domke F3 no problem. With the Tammy, I haven't figured which bag to get. I don't want a vertical holster, have one for the 100-400 and find it bulky, so with the Tammy it will really be bad. Like to find something that would carry it horizontally (hood reversed) but so far haven't found anything big enough.

Storage at home is no problem, just when I'm out and about.

I use think tank streetwalker pro. It fits both my Tammy and EF300mm F4.

I am certainly not going to let a bag stop me from 600mm at this price. By the way, I have a bag that holds my 7D, 70-200 2.8, 2x TC III and the hool mounted for use (not backwards), all connected together and ready for use. It is a Think Tank Products Digital Holster 50 V2.0

Do you think it might hold a camera with the Tammy mounted?

Wait, you said you didn't want a vertical holster.......oh well, I have one and like it a lot. When you pull the camera out, it is ready to shoot.

I got the Think Tank Products Digital Holster 50 V1.0 [I think] and hood stuck with the 35-350 zooming out lens .
I sent it back - talk about a dust pump .
The 150-600 may be smaller , but the 35-350 takes a 72 mm hood / filter and the 150-600 takes a 95 mm . If your 70-200 fits [It's 77 mm] maybe V2 is bigger .

You had me wondering the same thing....so I just went and got out my Think Tank Digital Holster 50 v2.0, Tamron 150-600, and 7D...and with the extended part un-zipped, it fits great! With around an inch to spare at the top.

This is most interesting. The 500mm and up lenses Canon make are well beyond my reach, but this could be a very good alternative. Exciting news.

This lens looks like a game changer for birdists such as yourself

Heya,

So has anyone put a Kenko PRO 300 series TC on a Tamron 600 yet? I'm very curious about it's reporting, working, and how the image quality is. I'm not concerned about autofocus. I know it will drop big time in aperture for this lens. But I'm super curious for doing the moon, where narrow aperture suits it just fine.

Very best,

MalVeaux - With regards to TCs, I have played with my Sigma 2x converter with this lens. It fits and works, but no AF via the viewfinder - I did get AF lock with live view though at 600mm. Haven't had a chance to try it on a moon shot yet.

Interesting.

I'm thinking of getting a 2.0x TC for my macro setup (180mm macro prime lens) to double the magnification without using tubes and making it huge to carry (I hand hold). It would be really cool if it could double as a fun useful trinket to use with the Tamron 600mm for things like the moon (I manual focus anyways on that), and perhaps some wildlife and other things via manual focus in really, really good light but only when I know I can't get close at all (... damn King Fishers!). Mainly though for the moon regarding the 600mm.

Very best,

I did also notice that in LR the exif settings didn't reflect the fact that the TC was connected, so it still showed as 600mm and f/6.3 even thought it certainly wasn't.....

Yes, I've tried with both the 1.4x and 2x (and both stacked). IQ held up pretty well with the 1.4x. The difference was visible when I looked close, but wasn't dramatic. 2x would still be usable for web-sized images. Haven't tried either on the moon, though I intend to.

I am very glad to hear that. I was hoping that it would fit, but I wanted that lens whether or not it did. Now I know I can put my 70-200 in the pouch it came with and use the Think Tank for the Tammy.

Can't wait to get that lens, but, unfortunately, I may be waiting for a while.

Heya,

Did they report correctly in EXIF with those two?

Thanks for the suggestion, if I can't find something in a shoulder bag I will check that one out.

Yes, I have the Lowepro Toploader Pro 75 AW for my 100-400. I find it to be very bulky and can only imagine the one that will fit the Tammy will almost reach to my knee. Unless you use a chest harness...
