    My New Go-To Lens for Wildlife Photography

    Although just a "tiny" bit soft at 600mm, I love the reach it gives me with a Canon 5D MKIII. I'm hoping that having it calibrated may take care of that, and even if it doesn't, I'm still super pleased. Would recommend this to any Canon user who doesn't want to spend thousands of dollars for the same sort of reach with an L glass prime. The two photos I've added here were taken at 600mm and cropped.

    Phenomenal Lens

    I love photographing Bald Eagles. I have gotten amazing close-ups of eagles within a hundred yards or so, but have also gotten decent photos of an eagle sitting on his/her eaglets in their nest from over a quarter of a mile away. Very satisfied. The lens is quite heavy, so you will need a decent tripod or monopod to use it effectively, but an occasional hand-held shot works OK.

    I'm so happy with the purchase of this lens. If you want to take pictures of wildlife then this is a great lens to have. Just note that this performs a lot better on a full frame sensor camera and images are a little soft at 600mm on a crop sensor camera. But overall the images are decent even on a crop sensor but definitely not as sharp as on a full frame.

    This is my 2nd Tamron lens and I love it. I bought it for taking shots of birds, etc and the solar eclipse. The price was right and I love the reach on it. Yes it is heavy, but not much more than my Canon 100-400 or 70-200 II (my go to lens).

    An ambitious lens that would probably do best if micro-adjusted - mine has a severe back-focusing issue. If focus issues can be resolved I would rate it a bit higher. While it does not have the high image quality compared to Canon glass, it costs considerably less!

    I bought this lens about 6 months ago and have been extremely happy with it. I do a lot of wildlife photography, mostly birds, which move very quickly. This lens allows me to get great telephoto shots. The stabilization works great, focusing, and focus lock are all great features.

    I shot with this lens, the Sigma Sport , and the version 1 of the Tamron lens. The Sigma was big and awkwardly heavy, the version one of the Tamron was not sharp wide open. This lens handled and balanced nicely and was sharp wide open. It has excellent build quality.

    Great Lens. Much better than the 1st generation of this lens. The weather sealing alone was worth the upgrade. Better and slightly faster focusing.

    Started taking photos of Eagles but needed larger lens but was on a budget. This lens has fulfilled all needs and the results so far have been terrific. Have been extremely pleased with results.

    The lens was reasonably priced........compared to the other zooms it's size. Also, the weight for a 600mm zoom is excellent. Can be used handheld. The G2 version is a better product than the Ver 1.

    My husband bought this to use on an Alaskan cruise in 2019 so wanted to start practicing early learning how to use it. He is very happy so far with the results he is getting.

    if you cannot afford a prime lens, like me, the Tamron 150 - 600mm G2 lens is the go-to lens for you.

    I tried the Sigma Contemporary and took it back. Bought this lens and couldn't be happier. The only negative thing is the weight but it's worth it.
