Pros: focal length, the cheapest way to achieve 600mm. sharpness, stop down to f7.1 or f8 for best results. AF. comparative size/weight. price.

Cons: not as sharp as the primes. focus ring turns opposite way to canon and ergonomics not as good as canon tele zooms. Size weight, heavy lens.

Opinion: I really like using this lens, not perfect but very very good. Best IQ on full frame or 1.3 crop. APSC still good. I think I may have got a good copy as I understand some others have focus sharpness problems. Not as good as my canon 100-400 ll lens but very hard to tell the difference. Build quality very good. heavy lens but manageable with a strap to take the weight. arch swiss tripod foot as standard. I previously owned the sigma contemporary which I sold as had issues with sharpness and focusing. The lens is relatively heavy but still able to carry around for hours easier than a prime, therefore the better option as will use more often. Ability to blur the backgrounds at F8 given the right circumstances, very pleasing results. No hesitation in using this lens instead of my 100-400. I recommend this lens.

Pros: Weight, handling, focal length, stabilization, autofocus, tropicalized.

Cons: Brightness and loss of sharpness over long distances.

Opinion: I've been using it for about two months. Not exactly a walking lens, but considering its features, it is easily usable even handheld. Wide focal range and excellent minimum distance (2.2 m. on all focal lengths). Well stabilized with 3 positions: 1 pan, 2 panning, 3 random moves. Location 3 great for birdlife in flight. Fast autofocus. Brightness isn't its strong point, given the price and everything else it's a great buy for me. Used with Nikon D500 great match.

Pros: Weight, Robustness, Autofocus & Stabilization, Tropicalization

Cons: Small loss of sharpness, slightly dark

Opinion: I've been using this Tamron for almost a year now, taken used by RCE in perfect condition! I use it combined with a Nikon D7200 for Wildlife photography in the high mountains, outside protected parks and in often difficult areas, I immediately liked the sturdy construction, to the touch it gives safety even in the most critical conditions and the tropicalization allows it to be used even in a light rain or during a snowfall. The ratio between the type of lens and its weight is very good and allows comfort for prolonged use, the bracket for attaching to the tripod is also excellent. The fast autofocus, the good construction and positioning of the selective sliders together with the stabilization, which allows shots in difficult light conditions, allow you to have everything under control in the instant of shooting! At full aperture, f5 at 150mm and especially f6.3 at 600mm, you can find some loss of sharpness, closing the diaphragm at f8, in fact, the recovered sharpness is clearly visible. Unfortunately, as in my case that I can't work at too high ISO (max 2000), due to the fairly small aperture of the aperture, the use of high shutter speeds, to capture for example the leap of an animal, is quite limited and most of the time you can't go below 1/1000 of a second. I recommend the lens for advanced amateur use, it is certainly not up to professional lenses (e.g. Nikon AF-S 400 f2.8 or the new Z-line lenses) but for the passionate nature photographer looking for something robust, efficient and without too high demands it is an excellent compromise, also for the quality-price ratio!

Pros: Tropicalization, weight, price

Cons: Soft to TA, sharpness after I 550mm,

Opinion: In a nutshell great for quality price If you travel a lot for photo hunting and you want a cheaper optics and also stay lighter is fine. Very Good to make some landscape at 150mm. It is not heavy there are optics much heavier than this 150-600mm. A little soft at full aperture especially at 600mm, closing between F7.1 and F10 is perfect, from F13 upwards it loses quality especially at the edges. Above 550mm it loses in terms of sharpness better not to go up to 600 if you are not really forced.

Pros: Versatility, lightness, attention to construction details, optical quality in favorable conditions.

Cons: To improve something you need from 600 to 1500 euros more, so none. It works well on Nikon, worse on Canon.

Opinion: Goal that I have owned for more than a year, thanks to which I am learning nature photography. At the moment (March 2022) all the alternatives on the market that offer something more than this lens cost and weigh more. To cite an example, the sigma C is clearly inferior in all to the Tamron G2, while the Sigma Sport, superior in everything, costs on average 700-800 euros more and weighs 2.9 kg, and is therefore another type of lens. The G2 model revolves around the ability to shoot at 600 mm f6.3 with sufficient sharpness, at 600 mm f8 with good sharpness. Optical performance improves when the subject enters the 2.2m - 10m focal range, where performance at maximum focal length becomes good and optimal respectively. In terms of sharpness and photographic look it pays something compared to the Nikon 200-500, but the Tamron is much more versatile, and lends itself better to photography in the open field because 100 mm more is a lot. It lends itself worse to photography of large mammals in the woods, due to the limiting aperture. The autofocus of my specimen has never had an indecision on a static subject while on a dynamic subject it is known that this lens "hooks immediately - follows - leaves - resumes - leaves - resumes ...". A distinctive feature of the Tamron G2 is the attention to detail. We find a collar of the Arca Swiss type (priceless comfort) and beautiful aesthetic details that adorn a decent and tropicalized construction on which honestly I could not find defects given the weight and price of the object in question. Excellent vertical keys that allow an intuitive and convenient setting of settings. Excellent stabilizer, which excels in its task more towards the photo side than towards the video one. I think this lens has earned Tamron a lot because of its versatility. I remember that heavier lenses imply many things, I find it difficult to think of a hand shot with a lens of 3 kg early in the morning, just when the birds are more active. But it's not just the question of "free shooting"... 3 Kg requires higher times even on the Gimbal. I preferred this lens to the others because of the cost and its innate versatility. In several years I will be happy to replace it with the resounding Nikon Z 200-600 (which has yet to come out).
