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.

Well I'm glad they kept this price. I got it for $950 from a user here on the forum who had decided that after only a few uses, it was going to collect dust if he didn't sell it.

Some are saying that this lens is kinda soft at 600. Just for fun I printed the bird/grasshopper at 13X19 and it came out fantastic. :)

Took the zooka to shoot a HS football scrimmage in full sun. I was pleased with the sharpness and color. (I used it on the 1DX body). Normally shoot with the 300 2.8 it was a total different feeling. I did find it hard to use the zoom range. You can't spin thru the whole range with one spin of the wrist. Surely need more practice to take advantage of the range.

Looks like someone hacked my Photobucket account and deleted most of the pictures, just notice it.

Heya,

Anyone know of a replacement tripod collar with a foot that is better? I'm looking to replace it with something with two screws instead of one for a more secure arca plate attachment. As it is, a single bolt on such a long foot is just not good enough.

I'm about to move from free hand shooting with the Tamron 600, to a TC setup on a gimbal, just to have some extreme range fun both for static wildlife and lunar captures. So I'm looking to increase stability of the base.

Very best,

When i received the lens the only big question was how did tamron missed that? My worries are same. Let me know if you find one.

You can use a plate that has a stopper to prevent from swiveling. I use a cheapo desmond 110mm? A bit of thread locker helps too, havent had issues yet, just make sure the edge is seated very well, and no movement.

Very nice pictures and topic everyone, just got back from 3 days camping in Canada. Finally an Internet :) I prefer VC off when in tripod/gimbal and handholding for BIF but for perched birds or other subject static I turn the VC ON.

I believed this is what I have is Desmond too. Nice recommendation.

Nice eagle shots, Peter! Where did you shoot these?
Also, where did you get your lens coat for the Tammy?

Mine is on the Fedex truck out for delivery. I am very much looking forward to getting it. My son actually took me outside last night to show me the International Space Station streaking through the sky and with my 70-200 I was able to get a few snaps of it, but I could barely make out the outline of the carft. He says tomorrrow night it will be slightly brighter and I plan to put this lens on my T3i to maximize the crop factor and see how well it turns out.
I never even knew you could see the international space station, but on certain days under certain conditions, apparently it is visible. I would have assumed it was a plane except my son knew exactly when and where it was going to appear. The kid is a total science geek. But it was cool to think I was actually seeing an object orbiting the earth with the naked eye from my back deck.
