I have both and I am thinking that I will dump the pump dust very soon. Its only because I have a second crop body that I am holding on to it right now. The difference is quite dramatic. The VC on the Tamron is much more efficient than the 100-400L. There is an period of adjustement. 600mm is long and if you don't have good technique, you might miss a few more shot at the beginning.

IQ/Sharpness wise/CA, it equal or better. I've posted many pictures already. Just look them up.

I'm keeping both for the moment, thinking that they are different tools. That being said, I haven't touched the 100-400L since aquiring the Tamzooka.

I am on the same page. It's just hard to let go the pump! =(

I suggest you rent one or test one out at the local camera shop. I hand held the first one I sampled at Imaging USA. Samples here:

Roger. That's how I feel. I just want to hold onto the 100-400mm but like you said. I am only using the Tamzooka since I got it.

I had the Canon 100-400L on long term loan from a friend. I bought the Big Tammy and gave the loaner back.

I've got a couple of shots I can show.

I've been busy with other things that don't require the Tamzooka so unfortunately I haven't really been able to spend any quality time with it yet.

Both of these were taken handheld.

thing is looks like all the posted pix are in warm weather
i got a copy of the 150-600 to try to replace a sigma 150-500 and canon 600f4[original prime with no is and 19lb weight - a load] problem was i tried it out in 20 degree weather on 50d/1d4 and after an hour outside it just quit[think the lube froze] on both cameras that had good battery readings

as were were going to iowa to take eagle pics, i returned the lens[last day was -15 degrees and the canon lenses and sigma ran well]


wants for Ls :D , now have 400do;500f4is,600f4 :cool::cool: off to birding and airshows:):):)

Care to share some samples?

(P.S: This is the first time I am using a lens which has FL beyond 200 mm :))

Saved up for a 400mm f5.6, but have been considering the 100-400. This set is great, makes a strong case for the tamzooka over the dust pump...especially being cheaper and having an additional 200. When are these lenses going to be available in the US?

Pumpdusted by the Tamzooka?

After 4 weeks, I am still trying to figure out the exact meaning of the word, "pumpdusted". I know that a nickname for the 100-400 is the "dust pump". But the way the OP turned that into a verb - pumpdusted - is confusing to me. This especially confuses me when considering the context in which it is used.

I have read and re-read the original post, and still cannot figure out exactly how the term "pumpdusted" works, from a grammatical standpoint. Every verb must have a subject, so I am left wondering, what was it that has (or has not) been "pumpdusted"? If the OP would care to explain this to me, I would certainly appreciate it.


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

I think it would have been better titled "Pump dusted by Tamzooka?" Asking the question has the 100-400 been dusted (replaced, out classed) by the Tamron. That's how I read it anyway. But your correct pumpdusted has little meaning.
