I'll know soon enough. Ordered the Tam 150-600 in Sony A-mount for the A7Rii. I did watch T.Northrups review pitting it against the Sigma 150-600, the Canon 400/5.6 and the Canon 100-400ii. The bottom line is that they are all sharp, just minute varying degrees. Chelsea liked the Tam 150-600 due to weight alone, their sidekick on the review liked the heavy beafiness of the Sigma. I've got the 100-400ii already and it is a cracker lens but even with the latest Metabones it and my other EOS long lenses are not what I want on my Sony. So I rented the Tam in the Sony mount and was impressed, enough to add it. Not perfect but on the Sony a push of a menu button and I can be at an effective 900mm.

I'm glad I found someone else that shoots like that. I'm right handed and left eye dominant, too.

Yep. I shoot pool "wrong handed' too. People look at me like WTF?

Well how many of you shoot with both eyes open. I do :)
One eye through the viewfinder on target, the other taking in the big picture....after a while the frame of the camera
disappears.

I think when you shoot with your left eye about all you can see with the right eye is the back of the camera. :)

I'm also in the camp of being right handed and left eye in the view finder, and yes, on occasion will open the other eye to see the big picture.

This tends to only be true for right eye dominant, right eyed shooters. ;-{
For left eye dominant, right eyed shooting is much less natural and requires consideration for Tracking in camera. Tons of Trai img/practices is required. And, closing the left eye doesn't reduce its dominance in my experience.

I shoot sports this way - I'm very right eye dominant but I use my left eye open using a very long lens in a hockey arena to track the puck


Hockey and wedding photographer. Favourite camera / lens combos: a 1DX II with a Tamron 45 1.8 VC, an A7Rii with a Canon 24-70F2.8L II, and a 5DSR with a Tamron 85 1.8 VC. Every lens I own I strongly recommend [Canon (35Lii, 100L Macro, 24-70F2.8ii, 70-200F2.8ii, 100-400Lii), Tamron (45 1.8, 85 1.8), Sigma 24-105]. If there are better lenses out there let me know because I haven't found them.
