I in no way am trying to be offensive or even self-promotional with this series; I want to help people.
Fair enough. I absolutely am trying to drive attention to my website to continue building my brand. I have no problem acknowledging that.
Interesting. I wonder if Sigma would redo their 85mm f/1.4 into an Art version. And, would be curious what will be the size of the 85mm f/1.4 Art
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?..?
Shown off to who, if you don't mind my asking? It's such an exotic piece of tech that only other photogs would know what it is.
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?
If Tamron built a 500/5.6, it might be more expensive/heavier than the current 150-600. According to Dustin Abbott, the Tamron is at f/6.3 starting at 411mm. If it were at f/5.6 at 500mm, then you might have been onto something...
well there is a similiar thread about a 600mm f5.6 or f6.3.
the mods my want to join this as it´s basically touching the same issues.
Anyone know how long the backlog for the lens is? I ordered one a week ago from B&H and am trying not to be whiney about it. On the plus side, I have decided to name it Tamronasaurus Rex.
