Bald Eagle, Hoonah, Alaska.  7D, 70-300L, 1/2000 second exposure.

I sent an email to Tamron today asking about the 7D Servo tracking issues.  Here's the reply:

"We have not seen any tracking issues with the Canon 7D and this lens. Actually, we did our own testing here with the 7D and found that it worked properly. We also compared the lens with a Canon equivalent and didn't see any differences. Its true that some camera bodies track better than others but we didn't see issues with any bodies.  Naturally, shooting birds at 600mm  F6.3 is not an easy thing to do and I think some users may just not be used to shooting at this long focal length and F stop."

What's the latest from the CR group?  This lens appeals to me, but I want to use it with my 6D and 7D.

Too many CR1s on this site
Agree.  This has been a really boring period of time.

( I've just realised how to stop the attached images from not fitting the page - after two years - duh ! )
I haven't.  How to you get them to fit the page?

Image size has to have a width of 740 pixels or less
Thanks!

I'd like to see consistency of placement of buttons on DSLRs.  I have a 6D that I use most of the time, and a 7D for birds/athletic events.  Every time I switch back to the 7D I get confused by the button placement.  The cameras don't all have the same buttons, but consistent buttons like "menu" and "info" could certainly be consistently located.

So you're saying there's a chance...   ???
Just when I thought they couldn't possibly be any dumber, they go and do something like this... and totally redeem themselves!
