    Oh i just thought of something, does it matter what camera i pair the tamron lens with. I just have a rebel xs.
    Also the same with the other more affordable lenses.

    Thanks.

    These days, the Tamzooka IS an 'affordable' 600mm.

    Sigma and Tamron both provide 150-600mm zoom lenses, which give massive telephoto reach, even on a full-frame DSLR camera body and even affordable for everyone.

    The best 150-600mm lenses are:
    Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM
    Tamron SP 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Di VC USD

    Yes my neighbor has the sigma 150-600mm. It's awesome. I was just looking at the Tamron 200-500mm and i can get it from amazon for about 750.00 and free shipping but i don't order anything off off amazon that is really expensive. I don't know where else i could get it.
    It's not the time for it now anyway, it's just good to know that there is something somewhat affordable.

    Thanks.

    Whatever you do, please don't sacrifice quality for price. If you buy one of those Chinese super telephoto lenses, you will soon find it sits unused in your basement and you will go back to your kit lens. Be patient and watch for used equipment. Sometimes you can get good deals if you're willing to wait.

    Tamron (and Sigma, for example) lenses will be designated to fit Canon, Nikon, Sony etc. So if you buy one, make sure it is the model made to fit your brand/mount of camera.

    Hey now!
    I have one of the Russian 500mm mirror on the Canon and though not a Canon F4 USM/IS, blah blah blah, it does perform fairly well.

    Now I am actually NOT going to recommend it ,but unless one has shot some of the Russian glass, don't discount it just yet.

    Check out Henry's in Kanata
    I only deal with our local Henry's. Their extended warranty is the best.
    When my last 500mm F4 went in for repair and Canon wrote it off, Henry's handed me another one at no charge.
