Photography Blog reviewed the new Tamron SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD G2 lens, a relatively affordable super-telephoto lens that can reach 1200mm on full-frame with optional teleconverters.

From the conclusion:

The Tamron SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD G2 offers improved image quality with smooth bokeh and excellent sharpness, a very effective and versatile image stabilisation system, and a fast, quiet and reliable auto-focus system. Despite a modest increase in size and weight, Tamron’s optic is still smaller and lighter than the Canon and Nikon equivalents, despite offering a bigger, more versatile focal range.

Image quality is very good throughout both the focal and aperture range, with excellent sharpness consistently achieved by stopping-down one stop from the maximum aperture. Chromatic aberrations are very well controlled and flare is only ever an issue when shooting directly into the sun. The only real optical issues are a little corner shading at the maximum apertures and some mild pincushioning at the 150mm focal length. Read the review…

Designed to work with both full-frame and APS sensor Canon DSLRs, this fast autofocus high-performance lens includes four UD glass elements, which promote contrasty, accurate images. The wide constant f/2.8 maximum aperture provides shallow depth of field so the subject is better separated from the background. Improved two-mode image stabilization adds four exposure stops for handheld low-light use. A focus range limiter helps reduce focus time. Its ultrasonic motor focuses quickly and smoothly. Minimum focus is 4.9 feet. A removable tripod collar is included.
