Pros:Sharpness, even at full aperture. Relatively light and manoeudable. Minimum focusing distance 1, 5m. Excellent construction. Af very fast and accurate, especially in tracking. With Tamron 1 multiplier, the 4x MC4 maintains ultra-high sharpness and optimum Af speed. The minimum focal length of 70 mm is more versatile than the counterparts 100-400 mm. Opening window in the lens hood to rotate the polarizer
Cons:No lock on 70mm to prevent zoom creep. Sometimes hard blur (only in some conditions)
Opinion:Exceptional optics, high quality and sharpness. Af Lightning and super precise, maintains excellent quality and speed even multiplied 1.4 x. Very versatile focal Range (much more than a 100-400mm), weight and size that make it ideal for stray photographic hunting and free hand use in general
Pros:Excellent quality 'image even at TA, autofocus quickly and accurately, min. distance maf, limiter af from 3m to infinity, light weight.
Cons:One thing really annoying and incomprehensible is that it has a zoom lock button when closed, tripod ring with handle very small to be contested well, is not sealed. For people like me who does naturalistic color is not ideal and it is advisable coverage

In good light conditions also works well with many 1.4x (I have the Kenko DGX) losing very little in af qualita'.rnSi and holds well and the zoom has a nice fluid motion, the level constructive me looks good even if it has a little 'plastic, moreover to contain weight you can not' some armor as certain fixed
