Seems Tamron has make the right move. Many people wait for a good, long reasonably priced telephoto. The question is how good it will be, and how much does it cost the new Tamron 150 600F/5-6.3 Di VC USD (Model A011). As a bird and wildlife photographer I would say the focal length is almost perfect. I wouldn’t mind even if it goes up to 800 or 1200mm. If the cost will be significantly lower than the Canon and Nikon wonders, perhaps can make a huge turmoil in the market. I think a very good 400,500,600mm prime also awaited by many with a smaller cost, than the Canon and Nikon solutions. If I can give a tip an 560mm f5.6 would be nice.


Availability, price

Seem the lens will be released in 2013 dec in Japan, next year in Europe and US, first in Canon mount. The good news that the price going to be around 1000-1200 Eur/USD. If the lens will be sharp this is quite a nice price, for such a long lens.


The new Tamron 150 600 will be compatible with FF and Aps-C cameras in Canon, Nikon and Sony mount.

The release date of the Tamron 150 600 F/5-6.3 Di VC USD (Model A011) lens not decided yet.


I hope it will be really sharp and contrasty at the longer focal lengths. Seems the test shots has been made at f9. This is expected such zoom lens in not the sharpest at the wide open aperture.
