All I can say here is: Canon rules!!!! 8)

So…I take it you're one of those Canon-paid lobbyists that AvTvM keeps harping about??   :P


So... how much did you pay DM to take some of the heat off you?   ;D

this conspiracy is like an onion  :o

I'm happy to confirm that I will have my hands on a pre-production copy sometime over the next month or so.  I'll let you know everything that I'm allowed to share during my review process.

good to know

Some sample images with 5D3 at http://blog.naver.com/sp_marketing/70179201020


Of course it is hard to tell from a few small screen images, but on those it appears to me as if the shots taken at 600mm are the sharpest!?

Every shot at maximum focal length is stopped down, and the wide angle shot is at f16. That's a lot of room for shots to be blurry wide open. Considering you can't use AF at those apertures anyway (at least with a Rebel), I have a suspicion that the 400f5.6 with a 1.4xTC is still better.

It sounds like a interesting lens, Since its a development announcement. I wonder why they are showing images?  A lot can happen during a development process, a lens has to be producible, and the end result may be a lot different from hand made prototypes that are as perfect optically as the lens can get.
 
I'm sure many with a 100-400L will be watching, my Tamron 200-400 was pretty bad compared to my 100-400L, I sold it off pretty quickly.

I agree it is interesting. I primary shoot people and love wide angle photography. My longest focal length is 70-200mm, so I have been looking out for an affordable telezoom.

I've been quite pleased with my new generation Tamron zooms (24-70mm f/2.8 VC and 70-200mm f/2.8 VC) so hope that this 150-600mm will provide similar level of image quality. My only concern is AF-compatibility with future bodies like the much rumored 7D-II.

It is coming in Spring 2014.  I should have a pre-release copy in hand early 2014 and will be sharing as much info as I'm allowed at this point.  My contact in the company says that even full resolution shots are looking very impressive from it so far.  I'm certainly interested in the lens.

That is good news ... I eagerly look forward to your review Dustin. BTW, I sold off my Sigma 150-500 OS Canon version and the Sigma 150-500 OS Nikon version is going to be a gift for my Bro-in-Law (in Australia) who uses Nikon ... but I still get to use it during my vacation ... a win-win situation  ;D ... I was thinking to pick the Nikon 80-400 VR II in March or April 2014 ... but if the Tamron is going to be released soon after, I might just hold off. Meanwhile, I eagerly look forward to your experience with it. Cheers.

Tamron 150-600mm will release in Japan for the Canon mount first on Dec 19th. We should start seeing some reviews soon. And pricing in Japan has been set at 140,000 yen ($1350 US). :)

http://www.tamron.co.jp/news/release_2013/1213.html

They have also created a new site just for this lens.

Also just release versions of Camera RAW and LR contained lens profile for the Tamron 150-600mm.

That is great news.  I was unaware that the Japanese release date was so soon.  That is a very attractive price, too.  Thanks for the info!

It certainly looks like it could be a great portable wildlife lens if it lives up to their hype and MTF curves.  I'll have to keep my eye on this one.

For some reason, all this time I've read it as 200-600 ... I didn't even realize there was typo, until you pointed out.
