I'm not exactly on any tight budget, nor am I a money no object buyer. But in spending this sort of money, I'd like value for my money. I've just watched the video review & read a few other reviews. I think the Generation 2 Tamron 150-600 is aimed against the Sigma 150-600 Sport perhaps. As it's almost twice the price of Sigma's Contemporary model and Tamron's own generation 1 model. And I still can't see that it gives that much over Sigma's Contemporary model. I think I'm still leaning towards the Sigma at the moment.
Sigma also do a lens & teleconverter package, but I don't think I'll be able to use auto focus with a teleconverter on my Canon 70D. From what I've read, I think with a teleconverter attached, auto focus will only work on the Canon 1 series cameras, not the 2 or 3 series.
Still weighing up my options at the moment.
Now to decide if I'll sell my EF100-400L MK2.
I know, I have the Contemporary which only has a 95mm filter. I almost bought a lens protection filter at Wex, they were £95 though. But I didn't, as I work for Canon and get a very useful staff discount on camera gear. But unfortunately, Canon don't seem to do a 95mm filter I've now discovered. So I may have to end up paying the £95 for one after all.tomoswald wrote: (fyi a 105mm filter is bloody expensive)
Yes - I saw that it was "Sport" from the exif under photos posted on here ... when you say "accidentally", do you mean you wanted the "C" version? If so (as a "C" version owner) I would say send it back! The "C" is hand-holdable, and fun / useful as such ... but definitely on the limit of hand-holdability. Anything heavier and I would probably be trying to re-purpose a rifle but or something.tomoswald wrote:I accidentally bought the sports version of this the other day
