Lots of people getting their lenses now - I wonder if that means that Tamron have recently switched back to focusing on making/shipping the Canon variant of the lens.

Newegg has just informed me that they are ready to send my Tamzooka! Am also waiting for tracking email. Think Tamron has just sent U. S. businesses a big bunch of these lenses. Looking forward to getting mine!

Just got my Tamzooka! It's BIG, isn't it? Think I will use a monopod with it most of the time. Looking forward to trying it out.

Yes, it is significantly larger than my 100-400L that I got rid of.

Picked mine up at UPS on Tue. It's big and heavy. 99% of my shooting is handheld. Tried some handheld shots and that is going to be a challenge and I'm no 90lb weakling. Keeping it steady on a small fixed object is not easy so I'm going to have to work on my technique. My guess is shooting moving subjects handheld will be easier than shooting small stationary objects handheld but I have yet to test this theory. I guess I'm going to have to dust off the tripod.

I have a question. What are people carrying and storing it in? It looks like it might barely fit in my Lowpro 400AW attached to my camera but I'll have to take out my Tamron 70-300 which it will probably replace anyway. But then I also need a place to store the hood. Putting it reversed on the lens works for length but makes it even wider which could mean completely rearranging my Lowpro to try and accomodate it. The other downside is I would probably have to leave it on my camera or store the camera without a lens attached. Storing it attached to the camera would be a pain because it won't be used nearly as often as the 24-105 which lives on my camera. I'm thinking of buying an aluminum case specifically for it and it's hood but that's really not a good option because I like to be able to just grab my Lowpro and go. Looks like I've talked myself into rearranging the Lowpro.

BTW - Ordered May 2nd from B&H.

Set drive to continuous and shoot bursts of 3-5 and you will get sharp captures ;-)a

I recently read an article on that subject. The author said one or more of the shots will be sharper than the first shot because of camera shake when depressing the shutter button. Sounds like you agree. I'll have to give it a try with this lens.

BTW - I downloaded and installed the Silkypix Developer Studio 4.0 for Tamron from the Tamron website. You get a license for this software with the lens. I was impressed. It quickly did a better job of sharpening an image than my efforts in Photoshop CC 2014. Based on that I recommend everyone who has this lens download and try this software.

There is a different reason too - when using servo focus, the lens will constantly focus in/out so some of the photos will be taken at a better moment when the focus is more optimal.

Test "drive" it for yourself ;-)a Us folks that started with film cameras carry over the habit of being frugal with the shutter button to the digital realm. Learning to shoot in burst mode was one the best things to happen to my photography. Once you start using continuous mode your brain merges with the FPS of each camera body and it is second nature to automatically fire off bursts of 3 FPS. That is my typical FPS rate. I can go as low as 1 FPS or as high as 5 or 7 FPS depending on the situation. Unimportant snap shots will just get 1 or 2 FPS, while important captures will get at least 3 all the way up to 7 or more. The more demanding the shot, (low light, slow shutter speed, long focal length etc...) the more frames I will capture.

What surprised me the most was how much of a difference it makes with Image Stabilization. I used to think I was getting sharp captures with my 70-300L, but when I started regularly shooting @ 3 FPS my image quality and sharpness really put my old single shot images to shame =)
