No. Good filter price to lens price is too high. Plus I don't have any other lenses that use that small a filter.

The Tamron will do your photography justice. Plus matched with you 6D - with its -3EV sensitivity rating on the centre cross point will be an amazing combo. I agree with trying both. If you can go one further and find a place that you can rent either one, I think would certainly help your decision. In regards to the focus speed, the reality is - at times its like splitting hairs, its close but negligible. BUT to some photographers they would said its worlds apart and reviews will go either way.
Check this review out on the Tamron. It does mention that Tamron has the edge over the Sigma 70-200.
I need help! Spring is in the air and I am coming down with GAS, I am spending to much time looking at lens reviews....how can I rid myself of this affliction?..?
Good point. One issue: no I'm not earning money out of it, and it means I will not get a single cent out of it too. Seems like most of you guys are pro-aperture in here then. I understand most people stated that Canon's speed is good, but does the Tamron lag behind much? How big is the difference? Seems like you guys are saying the speed is worth twice the price? It will be used mainly indoors I believe, hence it seems like I'm more of going for the Tamron for now. Definitely will use it outdoors at times, but the fact that I'm a hobbyist means that there's a good chunk of it being indoors.
Guys, there's one point that maybe I didn't explain all too well. My observation is not about the feasibility of a 500/5.6 or a 600/6.3 for 2500€. It's about the feasibility of such a lens at the same price of the current Tamron 150-600.
The overall hypothesis is that if a 600/6.3 is viable, then a 500/5.6 should be too. It's not a wishlist thread, I would like to discuss the technical implications of that. Comments on that?
Designing and building a 500mm prime is arguably easier than a 4x-600mm zoom, so that should offer the basis for better optics. Comments on that?
Seems like everyone's pro Tamron's 70-200mm F2.8 VC. Is this a testament to the IQ of Tamron? How would the zoom fare in comparison? Is the motor comparable to Canon's USM? F2.8 is really a big lure, bokehlicious and everything. How sharp is it in comparison to Canon's 70-300mm? Both lenses are priced rather closely as mentioned, so it really boils down to how versatile and useful it is in normal daily life (travelling, events, gatherings and stuff like that: read mundane. No wildlife, but sports might be used a bit.) On a side note, is 6D and a 70-xxxmm a good combo for sports?
Thanks brad-man for the link. I found out the difference b/w authorized/unauthorized sellers and so price difference.
About refurbished, there is around $150 difference in new and refurbished camera by canon usa. Is it worth spending extra to get a new camera or refurbished with one year warranty is equally good?
Picked up my 28 f/2.8 IS for 350 during the last holiday season's sales from one of the NYC superstores. It's a nice lens, but not very popular.Wow, you paid a good price for 28mm IS. It is a shame that other countries outside the USA there is no discount on prices of lenses. However, I actually prefer the focal length 24mm APS-C. Actually, I'm very envious of EF-M 22mm F2.
I'm keep hearing people say: "I bought EOS-M as a backup camera".
Let be honest here guys, many of us(including myself) bought the M due to half price reduction.
If this EOS-m still selling @ $700-$800, I wonder how many of us would consider the M as backup camera?
From 5D III owner POV, it doesn't make any senses to have EOS-M as a backup - from slow AF, unbalance, IQ.
Let say you go out and shoot BIF or action event. Your 5D III or 1D X is not working, would you rather have rebel, 60d, 40d etc as a backup?
My 2cents: current EOS-M is death and Canon has no interest bringing this system up to date in US market yet.
Sometimes I get jealous of my friends who shoot with Nikon. One of them bought Nikon 35mm F1.8 DX lens, and that's great. When I see the flash SB700 (medium model) also serving as master wireless, am ashamed of the 430 EXII not do the same. When I complain of the lack of APS-C primes (here in CR) tell me that I can buy Sigma 30mm F1.4, or Canon 28mm F2.8 IS. Seriously, Sigma costing $500 without image stabilizer, and Canon costing $550 for only F2.8? APS-C allows a lens 24mm (or 22mm) F2 very compact and below $300. Come on, Canon! I'm waiting.
