I like third party producer for their different lenses.
And I hope, it will be a good one.
If so, and I am not in a hurry, I wait for comparision between this and the newer version of the 100-400L.
Ah, good times.....

No, in September, but July should give me time to either get the lens if it is "good enough", accomodate any shipping delays, or shop around for good quality 100-400L

sample photos taken with Tamron 150-600mm
 http://camerarumors.blogspot.in/2013/11/tamron-sp-150-600mm-f5-63-vc-usd-sample_8.html

Hard to tell much from photos that are about 500px on the long end, but the bokeh looks nice in the last shot.  What I can't really tell is critical sharpness.

Fortunately for me, I'll probably get a chance to use and review it from Tamron before I have to make a decision.

Fortunate for us too! You're a good reviewer, Dustin.

I concur. I look forward to reading Dustin's review. I own the 200-500 Tamron.

No guarantees, but I was told today there is a possibility that I might get time with a pre-production model to review to coincide with the release.  That tells me that the release is going to be sooner rather than later.

I was just talking to my source here in Canada and got the impression that the release is definitely still several months out, so spring wouldn't surprise me.

I'm not an expert on MTF charts, the divergence in the 600mm curves doesn't look to good, but I don't have comparisons.    Also, I'd be happy if the best performance of the lens is in the 350-450mm range which is what I was in the market for originally. I'd try to hold back on shooting at 600mm, just like avoiding shooting wide open.  I found on my 100-400, pullling back to about 380 helped

Having sample images on the web means it will be coming pretty soon I would think.

extended bandwidth coatings, dang! who doesn't want that? i read through the press release and looked at the sample images, they are small size but still look pretty good. what i like is that it weighs half as much as my sigma 120-300. does the lens itself extend when zooming or is it internal?
