I just checked on my 5diii. And it's really good news. 31 of the 41 cross type points remain active even at 600mm. That is better than a typical f5.6 lens which usually give only 21 active cross types.

With the tamy 150-600 and the 5diii all 61 AF points work. 31 of 41 remain cross type points. Specifically, the Cross types points active will be all points at center column, 1st columns from center and 3rd column from center. The two outer columns remain regular focus points. None will be double cross types, however.

That's great. I wonder how it would be paired with 7Dmk2. 5DIII is way out of my budget.

We'll you may also have to consider if the 7dii sensor will out resolve the tamron lens. I know that I have read in one review regarding sharpness that the crop camera only produced so-so sharpness whereas on a full frame camera, the sharpness was excellent. However, I do not know if the huge reach is a substantial advantage or not over the 5diii with this 150-600 lens. From the photos here, it does seem the crop has the reach advantage IQ. Has anybody compared crop camera vs FF + crop here?

I believed you. A FF body like the 5dIII will always give a superior IQ compare to crop bodies, but I like the extra reach that the crop bodies gives. Some I believed has 6D bodies with this lens perhaps they can contribute or better yet with the 5DIII.

Thanks for the info on the 5DIII, hopefully the 7DII will then give group B or C which would give better coverage than the 7D 19 points.

On the sharpness I can say acording to SRF test I did the with the 7D the Tamzoka at 600 had similer MTF 50% sharpness indicator to my 300 f/4 + 1.4xII and was better at 400.

It is early days with the lens but I find it is harder to achieve that potential in the field at 600.

On the 6D in is much easier to get the sharpness, I think this is because of the shorter effective focal length (wider angle of view). I like using a 375mm lens on the 7D.

Today I was out and tested the lens. It was cloudy and cold. I got to test 6D's handling iso and I'm impressed every time of the camera but also of this lens. Below are some of my favorite images from today.

Well I spent a few hours standing on a windy desolate beach at Ainsdale (UK) this afternoon. Not had a look at my snaps yet, but I don't hold out much hope :( I think that the combination of 600mm, crop sensor, a plastic bag protecting my kit (proper camera type cover, not a bin liner) and very windy conditions. is too much for me to hand hold. Perhaps I am not strong enough, but playing with trying to find something to track (where were all the Kitesurfers today?) I think my limit is around 400-450mm for hand holding and a crop camera. I'll see if anything I shot is usable, but probably not., It wasn't very bright today either, which didn't help. Obviously I blame the gear first :D

Roll on the updated 100-400mm Canon :D


Call me Amanda please :)

Outstanding shot above Peter. Do you happen to know what the bird is? It is beautiful. I am kind of a bird nut, but horrible with identifying them. I need to get a guide book or something and start figuring out the birds that are out there.

if you have a smart phone, there are several bird ID apps, even including sound of their songs etc.
I have ibird pro and the audobon guide book collection, both great. You can search by categories like kind of bird, main color, secondary color, etc. Handier than lugging a book out into nature :-)


40D, 5D3, a bunch of lenses and other things :cool:
