I’ve been playing with the Tamron 150-600 f/5-6.3 for a while now and I’ve had it out with me on a couple of good wildlife trips alongside my Canon 200-400 f/4. It might seem like an odd pairing but I’ve been curious to see how the seemingly incredible value Tamron lens compares with the cream of the crop. There’s no doubt this Tamron lens is a bit of an anomaly, it’s incredibly sharp for such a ‘cheap’ lens. I use cheap in the relative sense, of course, because $1060 isn’t small change, but compared to the other options out there, it’s a steal of a deal so today I thought I would just share a few photos taken with it.
On the excellent Canon 7D Mark II, it’s a potent combination with a 35mm equivalent reach of 960mm which allows you to capture images like this first one.
