Thanks much!
Even in these days of 5D4, 1DxIII, and 5D, the 7D2 still does well. My skills haven't yet reached the camera's limits.

Im still debating if I should just go ahead and buy this Tamron lens (the original 150-600). I had this lens in the past and this one is a friends, I can pick it up cheap and continue using my canons for wildlife at distance. The other option is pay out a lot more money for a Fuji with less reach. The difference is weight and of course the Fuji is a very sharp lens. considering the ISO and light this what shot at, I think it does a great job...Im a little torn

My main challenge when using the 150-600 (G1 and G2), just not getting enough light (aperture) without pushing iso too high for feathers and fur. I mostly shoot sunrise/sunset and overcast so that doesn't help. There are benefits that come with the extra reach but I guess it depends on your situation. Both the Tamron's I've owned have needed some micro adjustment so mess with that a bit if you get one. I did love my original 150-600.

It depends on your budget. Long lenses with fast apertures get incredibly expensive the longer and faster you go.

Thanks, yes I also loved my original one and it was great in good light, my issue is the weight and arthritis so Im looking at the fuji 100-400 for my XT3 but I wont consider it until it goes on sale, its expensive but still a lot cheaper than the canon 100-400 version 2 , sux getting older

It may be just the web or the lighting conditions but those shots don't look as sharp as I would expect. I think I would be inclined to try a test in better lighting conditions where you could use a lower ISO before I made a decision on this particular lens.

I know exactly what you mean about getting older, 74 this year and sometimes feeling every minute of it -?

yes this was lower light, Im sure the lens is fine. Its just a matter of how long I can carry that weight. The fuji set up is over a kilo light than the 7DII and the tamron
