From test photoshoot to figure out how manage Tammy on 600mm. It`s harder than 400 :)

Very true, VC slows down the AF as when VC is turn on, to AF the VC has to kick in then AF start to work. VC/IS has very little to do in high shutter speed but VC/IS helps getting stabilize frame for tracking and hence sharper result. But many master the art of handheld so find more confident to work around and also IS/VC isn't a perfect technology :)

The problem I find with any auto mode is the meter reacting to the background. Rather than have to fiddle with the EC it is just easier to set the exposure. You do have to have your wits about you under changeable light and if the subject is moving from sun to shade, but you get a feel for it. Tv I find can result in small apertures that are often sub-optimal on the tele I have been using up to now. Don't know about the Tamzoka yet, early days.

I find shooting fully manual would create opportunity to miss shots. Would you agree that Shutter Priority could be better? Set to 1250 or 1500 and let the camera determine the Aperture and for me on a 6D maybe let the ISO stay on auto?

Yes I have heard this and it sounds quite reasonable, however experimenting in the past with both (on a Canon lens with a mode 2) did not show much difference for me in practice, but other mileage may vary.

I usually like to use Av, but with this lens I blew a lot of nice whale and bear shots on a recent trip because my shutter speed was too low; I'm not used to having to set my ISO as high as I need to with this lens (and didn't take the time to chimp my shots because of the activity). If I had the chance to do it over, I'd use M-mode with Auto ISO (even though I can't set exposure compenation in M), with shutter speed set to at least 1/1000. Second choice would be Tv.

I tried auto ISO once for that sort of reason Moose, it was a disaster, no EC so the exposure were generally off; never again! If you had an EC it could be useful but otherwise?

I would try it first before trusting it to a critical/never to be repeated situation.

If you're shooting RAW, exposure is not so important, so I use HTP for protection. There is no difference in noise between using and not using HTP once the ISO gets to the 800 range and above. HTP only compromises with shadow noise at low ISOs. The simple fact is that at the higher ISOs, the only thing that affect noise is the subject illumination, f-stop, and shutter speed; that's it - The ISO has no visible effect on RAW noise.

There are few situations where HTP won't protect you; one is a bright white bird like an egret illuminated better than its background; there you need to use something like AV and exposure compensation (or "sunny f/16" in manual mode).

Last year a 1dx firmware update allowed EC when on auto iso and fixed aperture/shutter. I am still waiting for this feature to trickle down to the 5diii. Anybody knows if this is going to happen?

We can only hope. That would be awesome.

You still can do manual, set Shutter speed + Aperture and then Auto ISO. (limit Auto ISO)
Spot metering works best in Manual mode and i find it more flexible.

Thanks. Just getting the hang of this lens. Looks like a great value. Was a little worried at the low price but, could not be happier with it.

I could be happier; it could be f/2.8 :D

j/k. For the price it can't be beat. Tamron could be charging a good $500 more and still not be keeping up with demand.
