Tamron SP 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Di VC USD Lens for Canon
Key Features
  • Canon EF Lens Mount
  • Aperture Range: f/5 to f/40
  • Three Low Dispersion Glass Elements
  • eBAND and BBAR Coatings
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.

Tamron SP 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Di VC USD Overview

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.

Great wildlife lens

By Glenn

Great addition to my lens supply. Reaches out for up close pictures and reasonably fast focus. A bit heavy so am learning how to stabilize and manage that aspect.m

So far, so good.

I’ve only had this lens for a few weeks. I’m using it on a Canon 7D and it works great. The image stabilization is pretty good and it takes picture pretty well in overcast late afternoon light. Things to look for, I’ve noticed autofocus with such a hefty lens drains my battery faster and it takes two full wrist turns to get from min to max zoom. I haven’t mastered quick subject yet (I do mostly bird photography and can’t get a swallow shot to save my life) but I think that’ll come with experience with the lens. Would definitely buy again.

Surpassed My Expectations

For years I’ve been eyeing super telephoto lenses but couldn’t afford to pay upwards of $10,000 for the reach that I wanted. A friend of mine showed me her Tamron 150-600 and I was blown away at the quality for the cost. I’m honestly shocked at the detail in some of these long range photos I’m taking, and that’s without a tripod! If you’ve been wanting a quality telephoto but can’t spare thousands of dollars do yourself a favor and check this lens out, you won’t be disappointed!

Excellent lens

This is an excellent lens. We have taken over 1000 pictures with it from distant scenes to semi-close up shots of flowers and insects. It is excellent in both auto focus and manual focus modes and gives shots I could never have achieved with a smaller lens. Clarity is excellent. Stability of lens when held by hand is very good. Sunrise and sunset pictures are exceptional. Low light levels still capture well considering the specs. Very pleased with this purchase. Even able to get some great moon/comet shots. Had a chance to compare pictures with a similar Sigma 150-600 lens and I truly see no discernible differences.

Awesome!!!

Did my research and reviewed and compared Sigma lens to the Tampon lens. Ordered and received the Tampon SP 150-600mm lens within two day. Awesome lens, heavy but is great for wildlife photography. Highly recommend buying from B&H.

Clear lens

This lens provides clear photos. It is heavy but worth it to have. I have only had it a short time but so far I am very happy with this lens. Fast focus as well.

After 3 outdoor sessions. i have some dust on the inside of the glass. Have no clue how it got inside between the lens. B and H did a great job shopping and no dust was in the lens on arrival.
