Pros: Minimum MAF distance, stabilizer, MAF speed, all focal zoom lock, calibration docks and fw updates

Cons: F/B focus, support

Opinion: Taken with an opportunity on the market replaced the old version that I have used for 3 years. I was a bit fearful because of certain reviews read, and that's why for a couple of months I kept them both. Squeezed well in various situations, from the stalking to the wandering hunting, it proved superior to the old version in many respects. 1. Sharpness. The old at 400mm became soft, this up to 500 holds up well. 2. MaF speed and accuracy. Compared to the previous series, it holds up the chases better even on uncontested backgrounds. In AI-Servo, it keeps the subject hooked until you follow 3. Reduced minimum MAF distance from 2.7 to 2.2 meters. For some a minor detail, in my opinion half a meter difference is felt. 4. Tripod ring already with Ark cut, comfortable and without needing to add plates. I think it's more stable to mount it like this. 5. Improved and customizable stabilizer via dock, with three options depending on the situation. 6. Zoom the die to the desired focus. Of the old Man I appreciated the possibility (random?) of being able to block at 400mm the distance. Now you can do it at any length. Convenient when shooting remotely, setting the machine as if it were a phototrap without worrying that it might change the framed field. 7. Ability to adjust the af and update the fw autonomously, without resorting to assistance with biblical times. The weight has remained the same for the G2, and unfortunately also the Polyphoto assistance. Basically a great lens for those who do not want to spend too much, and also for those who want to have more versatility sacrificing a bit of sharpness.

Pros: Ease of use freehand, lightness, autofocus speed, stabilization, sharpness, tropicalization, focal range

Cons: Diaphragm at 6.3 at maximum focal (but otherwise it would not have been so light), some chromatic aberration at 600 mm

Opinion: Despite the many criticisms read on the net I decided to buy the lens considering it perfect for the use that I do. I needed a zoommone for birdlife and wildlife that could be manageable in the shots on the fly, lurking in the cabin, in itinerant hunting. This well built and lightweight lens allows all of this with enviable image quality. The price has dropped a lot lately, so reading the features at the present time is unthinkable to find anything else on the market that can compete. Unbeatable price quality at the moment, functionality above the two closest competitors.

Pros: Lightness, versatility focal range, sharpness up to 500mm to TA, AF speed, very good stabilizer, ARCA Swiss Tripod Collar plate (no adapters needed), soft rings for zoom and MAF, zoom lock at desired focal length, support for Detachable tripod, warranty 4 years.

Cons: Soft sharpness at 600mm, stabilizer comes off as soon as it takes off finger from the shutter release, long distance image quality.

Opinion: I had for a couple of months this lens on the Nikon D500. Very good lens if used at court distances, it holds well up to about 500mm even at TA, but at 600 the image becomes kneed, in general the ideal is to shoot at fast Times... It has many qualities, such as lightness, especially when used in the mountains and compactness. AF very responsive. The stabilization system Hò found good, in my opinion a flaw lies in the fact that as soon as you remove the finger from the shutter button to focalize the VR goes off accordingly, in other lenses I noticed that it remains active for a few seconds. Another good thing is the support of the tripod that is already shaped "dovetail" (for all called Arca Swiss attack) and does not need an adaptation plate for this type of coupling in the head. In my case it happened that a thread from 1/4 underneath has detached the spring that is inside of it (helicoil) making it useless the hole for the classic plates, fortunately there are two holes... taken by the shopkeeper and replaced the collar immediately. I recommend it for those who are fledgling and not, considering the quality from 150 to 450mm, then unfortunately you lose. Warranty 4 years is great!

Pros: Sharp, handy and AF great

Cons: Dust in the lenses and construction not up to par

Opinion: Lens to be praised optical side, unfortunately with a other immense problems: infiltrations of dust in the front lens and gums neckline. Defect also recognized by Tamron that in the presence of this fixes in a free way and seals differently (and hopefully better) the last lens. The tires have already unsealed after a really bland use, so much so that to turn the zoom is not possible to do it with one hand, cause lifting of the tire and impossibility to turn. In essence you can not zoom with two fingers rubbing, but you have to grasp the ring of the zoom with the hand set to semi circumference, making the use fast without a tripod almost impossible. In fact with one hand you will have to hold the camera, with the other the lens from the 3 foot attachment, and in theory sliding two fingers should be possible to maintain this position by turning the zoom ring. This does not happen, and therefore we will be forced either to tilt body and lens down, or to do other stunts. In conclusion a very sharp lens with a truly quality AF: therefore side "quality \ \ Price" insurmountable. Unfortunately the construction makes you laugh, both for tires already ruined and for infiltrations of dust. Note as despite being a manufacturing defect, in case the optics are guarantee Europe (and not Asia), Polyphoto does not solve the problem for free, but indeed we are talking about €80 only shipments. Embarrassing behavior, and probably last optical Tamron. It's fine optical quality, but if then the construction and the assistance are not sibling level...

Pros: Immediate response to autofocus, iso, sharpness with versatility

Cons: inconvenient attachment for the stand, hard zooming ring

Opinion: I am using it for a couple of months on a canon 5 d mark III to photojournalism and sports I find extraordinary. I use it in tandem with a Canon 100-400 mm L series the old "Pasi" that remains much more comfortable but it doesn't keep the automatism with the extender 2 x III. The images are amazing in both if properly calibrated and measured. The Tamron is for use on a tripod to Freehand after some accused the weight. Anyway I was meravilgiato for quality and results. For once, I'm delighted to have "betrayed" Canon that should think about putting on similar focal market at affordable prices.
