And at 400mm the Tamron looks sharper across-the-board compared to the Canon 70-200 II with a 2x TC.
So if you already have a Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS II (& you wanted to go longer) for about the same cost of both Canon Extenders, you can get the extra 400-600mm range and better sharpness by going with the Tamron?
If I'm understanding all this correctly, for someone like me who typically photographs "static" landscapes, this is a no-brainer right? At least until the Canon 100-400mm II becomes available...
Indeed... I think if this lens was released a couple of years back when i first wanted length, i would have gone for it over adding extenders to my 70-200... that resolution is inspiring. Lets see how Canon will counter it... If the putative 100-400 II does not add a significant IQ, the tamron is a clear winner, and lets face it, the next 100-400 will cost a damn sight more than the tammy!
