Product Highlights
  • Canon EF Lens Mount
  • Aperture Range: f/5 to f/40
  • Three Low Dispersion Glass Elements
  • eBAND and BBAR Coatings
  • VC Image Stabilization
  • Ultrasonic Silent Drive Autofocus Motor
  • Full-Time Manual Focus Mechanism
  • Nine-Blade Circular Diaphragm
  • Removable Tripod Mount
  • Includes SILKYPIX Developer Studio

The Tamron SP 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Di VC USD Lens for Canon is an expansive telephoto-zoom lens designed for both full-frame and APS-C-sized image sensors. Its 4x zoom design covers standard telephoto to super telephoto perspectives, making it ideally suited to working with a wide variety of subject matter. Benefitting this range is VC (Vibration Compensation) image stabilization, which helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake to enable the use of longer shutter speeds or smaller apertures when hand-holding in low-light conditions. A USD (Ultrasonic Silent Drive) autofocus motor provides quick and precise focusing performance, with high torque, low response times, and quiet operation to benefit both still and video applications. Additionally, a full-time manual focus mechanism enables manual fine-tuning of focus at any point, even when the AF system is engaged.

The optical design integrates three low dispersion (LD) elements within its construction to minimize optical aberrations throughout the zoom range, particularly at the longer focal length positions. Individual elements also feature an eBAND (Extended Bandwidth & Angular Dependency) coating, as well as a conventional BBAR (Broad-Band Anti-Reflection) coating, in order to reduce lens flare and ghosting to produce more contrast-rich and color-neutral imagery.

Expansive telephoto-zoom lens is well-suited to nature, wildlife, and sports photography and can be used on both full-frame and APS-C DSLR cameras.
Three low dispersion elements are integrated into the front group of the lens construction (two in the first group, one in the third) to effectively compensate for on-axis optical aberrations throughout the zoom range, notably with longer focal length positions.
eBAND and BBAR coatings have been applied to lens elements to minimize lens flare and ghosting in order to maintain high contrast, clarity and color fidelity.
VC image stabilization helps to reduce the appearance of camera shake to enable greater hand-held shooting capabilities in low-light conditions.
A USD autofocus system provides quick, quiet, responsive and accurate focusing performance that is suited to both still image and movie shooting.
A full-time manual focus mechanism allows for manual focusing at any time; even when working in AF shooting modes.
The optimized optical design reduces the movement of lens groups during focusing and zooming in order to maintain a relatively compact and lightweight form-factor.
A redeveloped external finish, with linear patterned zoom and focus rings, enhance the overall handling of the lens as well as its cosmetic appearance.
A nine-blade circular diaphragm produces an aesthetic out-of-focus quality that is especially beneficial when working with selective focus or shallow depth of field techniques.
A removable tripod mount is included for use of the lens when working from a tripod.
SILKYPIX Developer Studio for Tamron software is included with the lens, which, aside from enabling basic RAW processing and image adjustments, works to specifically correct for chromatic aberrations of magnification, distortion, and peripheral light fall-off using dedicated optical data from Tamron's SP-series of lenses.

    I didn't know what to expect from this lens after reading some of the reviews. I feel that I gave it a pretty complete tryout both under controlled conditions indoors and out in the field. First of all, it is less contrasty than the Canon L series lenses but not really enough to cause a problem. It is not quite as sharp as my Canon 400mm f5.6 prime lens but about equal to the 100-400mm Canon (which is usually sharp enough for most people and for most purposes), but has a wider zoom range and since neither of the Canon lenses will autofocus with my 1.4 telextender, I can get 600mm and be able to autofocus. The Tamron 150-600 auto-focuses very fast and is probably the most accurate autofocus of any of the lenses that I own. The image stabilization works very well (4 stops is probably about right) It did not seem to hold focus or track as well on birds in flight as my Canon 400 but I was using the Tamron at 600mm on a cropped sensor 7D. So I was actually trying to track a flying bird at 840mm--kind of a challenge for any lens and this was only my 3rd attempt at photographing birds in flight- see photos. Some comments were made about image quality falling off over 500mm. On a sturdy tripod or with a realistic shutter speed I did not see this on my copy of the lens even shooting wide open. Like I said, the tamron may not be quite as sharp as the Canon 400mm prime lens but it is good enough and I get 600mm AND a zoom. I would say, Canon's equivalent lens is their 200-400 with the built-in extender but that lens costs more than 10 times as much. So, overall, I would give the tamron 150-600mm lens 4 stars, but because of the price, I gave it 5 stars---you should get one.

    Although I own 2 of Canon's "big whites", I purchased this lens for those times when I needed to travel lighter. Build quality is quite nice, but operationally, it needs some tweaking! I ran it through it's paces both handheld and on a tripod with a Canon 1D Mark IV. This lens needs A LOT OF LIGHT (an aperture of f8 or f11 is a virtual necessity) and a high shutter speed (1/1600 or above) to get decently good crisp images. For static shots, it works quite well; for shots when the subject is moving, not so much. For my short time with the lens, I found it difficult to get focus lock within the telephoto range of 400-600mm, regardless of subject matter. And since that's the range where I shoot the most, I found the lens unacceptable for my purposes and returned it. I might reconsider a second generation of it at some point in the future.

    I've just started using this lens to get used to it, but it seems to work flawlessly so far. Can't wait to try it out on my next venture to Glacier National Park in Montana! Easy to use, but definitely heavy! So glad I got this lens!

      Comments about Tamron SP 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Di VC USD Lens for Canon:

      Being a birder you are always hungry for reach. But once you cross 400mm marker, the costs go exponetially high.For a hobbyist it's hard to justify the 5 digit price.Tamron hit the nail on the head in terms of quality and affordable price.It's really surprising looking at the quality this lens produces vs it's cost. It's light weight is another positive.Yes, it's not built like a tank. If you can take good care of your equipment, I think this is the best (and only) 600mm you can get for under $[*]

      I have just tested this out at the zoo. I used to have the sigma 150 - 500 and it was inadequate sharpness on the 5D3. This is longer and much much sharper. Even with the noise from F6.3 I got wonderful detail in fur and feathers. its not he Canon 600F4, but you can buy 8 of these for that price,

        After a 3 month wait I finally got my lens. I have a Canon 7D and will use this lens for wildlife and sports. I took it out to the car races to give it a try. The autofocus was quick and accurate and the sharpness all the way out to 600mm was great. I have attached a photo so you can see for yourself ( this was a handheld shot).For the money this is a great buy!

        As a bird photographer, the closer the better and the Tamron SP 150-600mm gets me up close and personal. It's easy to use and works on a half sensor or full sensor camera. Of course it's heavy, but it's worth it!

            Comments about Tamron SP 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Di VC USD Lens for Canon:

            I'm an amateur bird photographer who was looking for a lens with more reach than my 100-400mm. After just a week of trying out the Tamron 150-650, I'm convinced that I got a whole lot more. The reach I wanted for that Common Black-Hawk fledgling high in a Sycamore tree is there to be sure. But what has surprised me is the faster and truer focus, sharp images and a higher number of keepers I saw in shooting Black-chinned Sparrows and Tropical Kingbirds. I had to make a focus micro-adjustment, but I had done that on the 100-400 also. Because the new lens is heavier, I'm using a tripod all the time and that means I've lost some versatility. But the trade-off has been worth it--at least so far.

              After a 3 month wait I finally got my lens this week. I took it out this weekend for a test at the vintage car races and the zoo. I have a Canon 7D and was using a 100-400 L series before I got this lens. So far I am very pleased. The auto focus is quick and accurate and I love the extra reach this lens gives me. The sharpness seems to be as good as my L series lens all the way out to 600mm ( I will attach a couple of photos so you can be the judge. These were both hand held shots). For the price of this lens you can't go wrong, it is a real winner!

I had to wait on back order for three months,but it was worth it. and I don't have to spend the price of a L type lens. The sharpnes is slightly not as good as a L type lens, But for the price of this one, I would buy it.

From 150-to-very-nearly 600 the results have been clear and the lens itself responsive. One day soon, when it's not so hot, I shall get myself to a place for observing wildlife and see what it can do!

                      Comments about Tamron SP 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Di VC USD Lens for Canon:

                      I was in the market to extend the range of my Nikon D4 and happened on this lens, at first with disbelief because of the reasonable price. Then I read a couple of reviews praising the lens, so put my name on the order list. Four months later it arrived and the results blew me away. Sure it's heavy, but isn't anything in the 600 mm range heavy? Especially with a D4!. It is sharp as a tack, focuses quickly and silently; taking birds in flight is a breeze. I agree in low light it has its challenge, but modern sensors can cope with higher ISO that makes it all work. I have cropped frames down to 1/4 the size and the sharpness is still there.

                      I have the Canon 100-400mm L, and I was looking for a lens that gets me that better reach without having to pay $. Once I heard about this lens and the previous reviews, I decided to give it a shot as it's anyway cheaper than my 100-400.I got the lens a couple of days back. From the first look, the lens looked solid and well built, and I could actually see the quality of the optics once I removed the lens cap. The zoom ring is very well sized to the extent that you can't ever miss. I also liked the lock feature at 150mm which is much easier than the lock ring mechanism at the 100-400.I got the chance to take some test shots against my 100-400 and this Tamron was surprisingly sharper than the Canon 100-400mm L in the same settings. I'm attaching here a comparison shot, both shots were taken at F/8.0 using a tripod and a gimbal head at ISO 100. Focus was fast and accurate, at least for the still objects I tested.At 600mm, the lens goes just a bit softer, which was actually expected to me. However, the photos at 600mm are pretty much usable since I was prepared to sacrifice some little IQ for a better reach.Overall, I'm so far happy with this lens and looking forward to take it out for some bird and wildlife shots. For this price tag, you can't go wrong with this one.

                            Comments about Tamron SP 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Di VC USD Lens for Canon:

                            First, the lens is sharp and quite good out to 600mm. I have been reviewing lenses for publication for 20 years now and tested this lens myself against Canon's 100-400L. Before you run out and buy it let me explain a few things. First AF is fast, but if you are shooting in dim lighting or focusing on something without contrast like a plain blue sky at 600mm the lens is an F6.3. This exceeds the minimum aperture of F5.6, which is what DSLRs require for minimum light and proper AF. Yes, there were some older film SLRs that could use F8 and AF properly, but today its mostly F5.6. And even at that you still need contrast for AF to work. This means you need daylight and a partially sunny condition for good AF or you may have AF hunting. Same for ANY lens with an aperture slower than F5.6.The Vibration Control is good, but hand holding this lens is not advised at longer focal lengths even with fast shutter speeds, unless you really pull it into your body and make it steady. The reason is that at 600mm even a small movement will cause blur. And while VC is good, most will the lens outward and get blur in their, which will appear as if the lens is not sharp.Build quality is good. People complain about plastic but the design keeps the price and weight down. Personally, I do not care if my lens is all metal as I take care of my lenses and do not bounce them around or hammer nails into the wall with them. At $[$] this lens is a very good value. Just use common sense and consider using a Monopod or Tripod, especially from 300-600mm and your good shots will increase dramatically. And if you are in a darker area, flip the AF switch to manual focus and turn the focusing ring. It's that easy! Well… except for those not too bright photographers who only use P-mode (Professional-mode ;-) ) and think AF is the only means to focus a lens. Those are Fauxtographers.

                            Comments about Tamron SP 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Di VC USD Lens for Canon:

                            Most of my photography is nautical and aviation and I require long telephoto lens to do most of it. I have mated this lens with a Canon EOS 60D. My mainstay long lens was the Canon 100-400mm before I obtained this lens. I have been very happy with this lens at all focal lengths and from what I can tell from my initial use is that it rivals the Canon and has the great advantage of an extra 200mm reach. The lens feels solid and well built. The lens hood clicks on nicely for both use and storage. I've taken about 1000 frames with it so far, both with a monopod and hand held and was impressed by how well it handles despite its weight. The rotating zoom is a bit slower than the easy push-pull of the Canon and therefore fast moving objects can be a bit challenging. The auto-focus and image stabilization works quickly and dependably. I am very pleaded with the sharpness of the lens and especially so at 600mm which has effectively given me 50% more reach. I was preparing to shoot a large ship at distance when a small boat came into view and I quickly changed targets and rattled off a number of 600mm shots. I was surprised at the clarity a sharpness of the images and the detail of the peoples faces as it raced by me at a few hundred yards. I also got some shorts of passing helicopter and was pleased at the sharpness of what was de-facto a 900mm+ shot hand held! As a lark, I took some photos of a passing airliner that could barely be seen except for its contrails. When I blew up the image I was shocked at the detail of an aircraft that was easily 15to 20,000 feet up! I would highly recommend this lens to any photographer who want great reach, a solid feel, and quick and accurate focusing for a very reasonable price. a definite winner! It would be nice if Tamron developed a tailored travelling case for this lens.

                            Took some pictures at the Bron Zoo and Jamaica Bay -Gateway National Park. I found this lens to be sharper than either my Sigma 120-400 or Sigma 150-500. No only is they could make the lens a drop faster.

                            While the experienced bird in flight photographers may not be satisfied with this lens, I have found it very adequate when used with my Canon 5MK3, including using it with the AI Servo setting. The IQ is superior to the Canon 100-400, and auto focus is at least equal if not better. Much better when the 100-400 is used with an extender. For an amateur like me this lens is a game changer. I could never justify the cost of a Canon 600mm prime for the improvement it would be over this lens. I'm very pleased with the results and would recommend it to others looking for an economical long lens.

                              Great lens and reach for the money! Not as fast as my 400mm 5.6 but not slow either. Spending 10K on a prime to get the same reach was out out of the question, especially for hobby wildlife photography.
