Not the greatest, I was on my way to work and took this without turning the car off, but I thought it was cool, especially the purple color cast. Also, very early, before much sun.

And it is cool! Very nice how possibly your presence (car noise, since you said you fdid not turn it off) caused them to have a look in your direction at just the right time. Well done!

3 years later my Tammy 150-600 continues to be an all-around workhorse. Birds, people, wildflowers... It does it all.

I will admit that this lens benefits quite a bit from being stopped down to f8. I shot it wide open for a few months, then did some comparison with f6.3 vs. f8 and there was no question f8 was sharper in every situation. So my custom mode on my 7D for this lens is always f8 and ISO 400. If I get into a danger zone with the shutter speed, I'll bump up the ISO, but I never go below f8 anymore.

Thank you. Personally I prefer this one, but it gets a bit confusing for some folks.

I like this one a lot as well. I do prefer the other one, but I would have been happy to have captured either.
