    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 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.

    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.

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