I like the shadows and the lighting. Excellent....
Hey Ed I see that you have a ton of great shots with the Tam 150-600 how is the weight on it? I was thinking of getting a bit more reach with the Sig 150-600 and was wondering whats your take on it since you are already using it. These shots are great.
I suppose it depends on who you ask. I got taken to task when mentioning the weight by someone who was used to carrying a much heavier rig!! But for me, as a relative newbie (this year) to these huge zooms, it is a big transition . I think that it depends on what you are used to. This is by far the biggest heaviest lens I have owned, so it seems like a bear. But I am not complaining since it's so much fun to use. I am still getting used to it and still working out the optimal way to haul it and manage it. I think my tripod is too small to be adequate so I have to upgrade. These are the sort of adjustments you have to make. And I haven't figured out some of the adjustable functions of the lens yet. I have discovered that I think I need to upgrade my camera body to one better suited for shooting moving wildlife since it is a struggle to have consistent autofocus. 7dMkII here I come, since I seem to have drifted permanently into being a wildlife shooter. I suppose it was inevitable considering my professional and personal background and history and amazing that it took this long.
I was torn between the Tamron and the Sigma since my local shop is a Sigma dealer, but this Tamron came along out of this forum at a great price so the decision was made. So far so good.
