    Hello Guys

    I was checking sample picture of few lens, my eyes got caught by Tamron 200-500 lens. Though I'm not comparing with Canon 100-400 L but it's looks good in samples.

    Anybody used this lens? Any sample picture by you?

    Thanks, Shabu

    Hello Shabu,
    I use the lens for some while now and I'm quet pleased with it.
    I had the chance to compare it with the Bigma and the Sigma 170-500 and was surprised that imho it scored a bit better in sharpness.
    It is not very fast focusing though, but hey it is very good for the price you pay.
    Not too heavy to handle.
    Here some sample shots
