In my opinion superzoom lenses make no sense for DSLR cameras. Their image quality is pretty low due to the high magnification ration. If you can't take more lenses with you for any reason, it's better to take a superzoom compact (like the SX 620 HS). They're much lighter than a DSLR with a superzoom lens and with the newer models you can have nearly the same image quality. And on a crop body the Tamron 18-400 has smaller focal length range (35mm equivalent) than the new SX models.

I wanted to get a Canon M6 as a second camera mostly for travel, also as a second camera.

However, I have a concern:  Will a Tamron 28-300mm lens work with a Canon M6 camera with M Mount Adapter? Any issue with the autofocus?

Thanks for your answers.
