Capture the power and beauty of wildlife, birds, travel destinations, and exciting sports action close-ups with this high-performance 150-600mm long-range zoom. VC (Vibration Compensation) and USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive) enable you to shoot crisp images of fast-moving, distant subjects handheld, while proprietary Tamron optical technology, including eBAND Coating, works to suppress flare and ghosting for impressively clear, vibrant images. Three LD (Low Dispersion) elements are effectively deployed to correct chromatic aberrations, a challenging problem when shooting at long distances and at long focal-length settings. Tamron's eBAND Coating and BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) Coating help suppress flare and ghosting for class-leading image quality.VC (Vibration Compensation) is Tamron's proprietary image stabilization system. Tamron's VC is a three-coil system, whereby three driving coils activate the shake-compensating VC lens group electromagnetically via three ceramic ball bearings. The quiet high-torque USD motor ensures a speedy and accurate autofocus response. This new coating technique developed by Tamron deploys a Nano-structured layer (1 nm = 1/1,000,000mm) of ultra-low refractive index, with dimensions smaller than the wavelengths of visible rays of light. This Nano-structured layer coupled with the sophisticated multiple layer coatings underneath, yields significant anti-reflection properties, efficiently reducing undesired flare and ghosting to an absolute minimum to deliver sharp, crisp images. While covering a very wide range of focal lengths, this lens is remarkably compact and accepts 95mm filters. Its stylish design with signature Tamron tungsten silver finish and elegant brand ring incorporates a sturdy tripod mount to enhance both stability and ease of use. Moisture-resistant construction helps prevent moisture from penetrating the lens.

I got the lens a couple of days back. From the first look, the lens looked solid and well built, and I could actually see the quality of the optics once I removed the lens cap. The zoom ring is very well sized to the extent that you can't ever miss. I also liked the lock feature at 150mm which is much easier than the lock ring mechanism at the 100-400.
I got the chance to take some test shots against my 100-400 and this Tamron was surprisingly sharper than the Canon 100-400mm L in the same settings. I'm attaching here a comparison shot, both shots were taken at F/8.0 using a tripod and a gimbal head at ISO 100. Focus was fast and accurate, at least for the still objects I tested.
At 600mm, the lens goes just a bit softer, which was actually expected to me. However, the photos at 600mm are pretty much usable since I was prepared to sacrifice some little IQ for a better reach.
Overall, I'm so far happy with this lens and looking forward to take it out for some bird and wildlife shots. For this price tag, you can't go wrong with this one.
I took the lens for a test shot in the field and got some nice birds. I uploaded some of the photos I took that day here on Amazon. My initial review is still as is. The lens performed very well in the field and actually better than my Canon 100-400mm. Fast focus, very good image stabilization handheld "VC" (Although it's not that easy to keep using it handheld due to the weight), and most importantly a very good IQ and sharpness even at 600mm. The one best thing I could easily see in comparison to the 100-400 is the contrast, a very beautiful contrast and color reproduction.
The best money I have spent this year is on this lens.
This lens is great through 450mm and very good to 500-550mm. It's noticeably softer wide open at 600mm but sharpens up when stopped down to f/8 or f/9. The IQ at 600 is akin to having a very good 400mm with a 1.4x teleconverter attached. The Tamron is good enough at 600mm that I shoot 90-95% of my shots at that focal length.
The biggest knock against it is the autofocus. It is slow to lock on and makes it difficult to shoot birds in flight. It is noticeably inferior to my Canon 70-300L, which is much quicker with greater accuracy. But the Canon only goes to 300mm. What it means is that I will need to improve my technique to get the keeper rate up. Regardless, I consider it a fair trade off because the images that are in focus are excellent and could not be obtained by lenses with shorter focal lengths.
The first shots with this lens were stunning, for the price I couldn't believe the clarity of the shots. I shoot a Canon 7D and at one point almost declined purchasing it, because of the negative reviews of this lens vs. full frame and the 7D.
I am in the forest most every day photographing wildlife and am exclusively using the Tamron 150-600. Much of my work is done in heavy canopy and it is often void of good light. I hand hold when photographing wildlife, unless I can use a nearby tree for support, and this lens with it's VC stabilization is stellar. I have hand held shots at 1/80 that have turned out very nice.
As strictly a wildlife photographer, the number one reason I love this lens is the type of detail it produces. If you want a long range lens that produces an over sharpened or "etched" look, the Tamron isn't for you, as it's images are sharp, but with a natural looking detail... bird's feathers look like the real thing. (An example of an Indigo Bunting in the Customer Images)
I don't know if if am just lucky with this particular "copy" and my 7D, but I am very happy with the majority of the outcomes. If you are looking for an affordable lens with versatility in the field and it's awesome telephoto capability, this is the one for you.
