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: 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).

Pros: tropicalization, low weight, affordable cost, excellent maneuverability, support arca swiss

Cons: light hood

Opinion: Purchased after viewing various and in-depth reviews and opinions on the net, as well as on JuzaPhoto. I had tried at the time the first G1 version lent to me by a friend but it had not thrilled me especially at the maximum focal length and maximum aperture (6.3). This new G2 version, mounted on Nikon Z5 with FTZ amazed me immediately. Excellent yield and sharpness on all focal lengths even at 600 mm. although with a slight loss of sharpness, but negligible compared to the first version. Excellent stabilization with pleasant shots even with times of 1/60, fast MAF. Also tested on my old (but always valid) D90 where the 600 becomes for the crop factor 900mm. Here too excellent results even if the MAF has repeatedly struggled to hook the subject and the use of rapid times is a must. Also purchased the TAP-in Console Tamron to optimize the focus even if I did not need it. For a passionate amateur photographer always sensitive to containing the costs that this passion absorbs greedily is an excellent lens that does not disappoint absolutely, difficult to find zoom of these focal lengths at such low prices. Rating 10

Pros: Tropicalized, weight, cost, Versatility, ark swiss plate .

Cons: The Hood could have been more important, soft from 550mm onwards.

Opinion: Purchased for about 2 years, first combined with a Nikon D7200, where it worked very well without the need for special micro adjustments to the autofocus, from 150mm to 500mm in subjects at the right distance the lens shows itself very sharp, with natural colors and contrast, in the Nikon D500, after an accurate micro fine adjustment of the autofocus, in optimal light conditions it is almost a blade, surprising as it works well from F / 5.0 or 6.3 up, with a micro detail excellent for a zoommone, obvious that if you shoot at 600mm to very distant subjects it becomes soft, especially at the edges, but it is the classic flaw of zooms, I find the image stabilizer excellent, which allows you to shoot with relatively low times , very useful especially for those who practice traveling photo hunting. Arca swiss plate supplied, excellent tropicalization and finishes in general. As almost any third-party lens can suffer from front / back focus, so I find very useful the tap-in console of Tamron, after a bit 'of tests and meticulous controls you can safely set the autofocus to your liking avoiding to send the lens in assistance, so as to avoid further additional costs. Slight chromatic aberration at TA.
