Tamron SP 150-600mm f5-6.3 VC G2 review (improved optics and weather sealing, Camera Labs)

Tamron SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD G2

Camera Labs reviewed the Tamron SP 150-600mm f5-6.3 VC G2 megazoom. They praise build quality, image stabilisation, auto-focus among others.

From the conclusion:

An improved image quality combined with a good image stabilization, improved sealing, shorter minimum focus distance, and an acceptable size and weight makes Tamron’s new 4x super-telephoto a compelling package. It’s a pity that Tamron didn’t position it as the successor to their A011 model at the same price-point. But it certainly earns a Recommended rating.

Camera Lab’s review compares the Tamron SP 150-600mm f5-6.3 VC G2 with other similar telephoto lenses. Sample images are here, the lab charts are here.

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…
