I've been using it last week.. I'm still not happy with any shot over 150-200mm. It not sharp at all, unless you are using 200mm on something thats quite close.
a distance shot and it's looking blurred.

Look.. something not moving... blurred shot at 200mm

I've tried every option I can think of.. f2.8.. f8, f10 etc. centre focus on my 7DmkII, it's jus not clear. 70mm it seem sharp.

am I doing something stupidly wrong??


my 150-600 tamron lens is sharp at all mm. it's a cheaper lens and I get better results.

at 375mm same bird as above the day after (I don'tthink it moved in 24hrs lol) This is sharper.

I have the Nikon version, but my Tamron 70-200 VC is very sharp at all focal lengths including from 150-200 at f/2.8. If yours is not, I would send it in for service.

Clone that one spec of rain reflection by his ear and it'll be perfect. To me it stands out bad
