Tamron SP 150-600 f/5-6.3 VC Review
« on: January 02, 2014, 10:18:28 AM »

*UPDATE*

The link to the review doesn’t seem to be working, it could be a traffic issue. I’ll leave the links up and we’ll see if it corrects itself.


Frank Wong has completed his review of the soon-to-be-released Tamron 150-600 f/5-6.3 VC zoom lens. This is currently the longest zoom lens currently in production and looks to be a steal at only $1069. If you’re a birder or wildlife photographer on a budget, this lens may be the perfect addition to your kit.


The review has been translated to english and shows a lot of sample images.


Says Frank

“A good value lens appear in the market ! 600mm reach , F6.3 does not a matter for DSLR nowdays which have good ISO , fast focus , light weight (1.9KG with tripod mount), also a very long warranty period  (3-6 years as i remember in Hong Kong  )  . I am very impressive with this lens .”

I'll be watching this closely... I keep a 2x for my 70-200, but seems that this would be a better solution for occasional long reach instead, for just a few more bucks!

Pretty funny, Frank, and I guess you could say there's a bit of interest in your review!  We all look forward to reading it once you sort things out with your ISP.

Tamron has had QC issues in the past (e.g., second elements coming loose in the 24-70/2.8 VC). Assuming this review is of a pre-production lens (likely hand-picked for the reviewer), I'd prefer to wait for reviews of production copies of the lens, purchased through normal retail channels.

Neuro, I'm pretty sure the lens was released in December in Asia, so this should be a retail lens, but until we can read the review we won't know for sure.

I do enjoy Dustin's reviews as he, like Bryan C. speak in real world terms and the review isn't coming off as a sales pitch. But I agree with Neuro and the off the shelf review vs promo-pre production review.
